As I sit down to write this blog, there are 23 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes until Spring 2015. With the record-setting snowfall in the Northeast and bone-numbing cold across the country, I think it’s safe to say we’re all ready for springtime and a cheerful burst of color.
If you haven’t noticed, there are some flowers that look like, well, other things. Take a look at these buds and tell me what you see. I’ll post the answers as a comment under this blog post on my Facebook page.
1. Dracula Simia
2. Orchis Italica
3. Psychotria Elata
4. Impatiens Bequaertii
5. Impatiens Psittacina
7. Peristeria Elata
