The Flavor of February: Not Just Birds But Blossoms

Birds aren’t the only things adding beauty to the backyard this month, Camellia blossoms are out in abundance and the Daffodils are beginning to bloom.

Right in the center of our backyard, next to the fountain, we have a colossal Camellia bush that is overflowing with flowers.

A number of the blossoms end up falling into the fountain, which makes them extra lovely with their decorative droplets.

An even larger number of the flowers end up as Lab treats…who knew they would be considered such delectable delights! (And they are consuming such large quantities I had to check and make sure they weren’t harmful!)

The Daffodils are also beginning to display their vibrant colors.

I cut this one to take its picture.

Then turned it to get a different angle…

…but the next thing I knew, it was in danger of becoming a Lab treat too!

While I cut a few flowers to bring inside, this determined duo waited at the top of the steps to see if they could steal any more snacks before I got them inside.

I am happy to report that a lovely trio of flowers survived uneaten to brighten up my kitchen.

But I fear many more blossoms are destined for a different fate!

Ah well…the birds, the blossoms, and the labra-beasts all add to the flavor of February!
