Inside the house the situation is not much better. A NOID Cattleya I bought a couple of weeks ago is still going, I really love red orchids and this might be one of the best reds ever. My other blooming orchid is one that I love, not only does it have red blooms (though not as pure as the Cattleya) but since I bought it two winters ago this is the second time it reblooms for me. I think it might be a hybrid Epidendrum Ibaguense but if someone knows for sure please let me know in the comments.

In the garden there are not many flowers to look at. The snowdrops did poorly (yes the fact some chickens sat on them might be a reason), but there are still some Iris Reticulata 'Katherine Hodgekin' in flower. But between those and a couple of white Crocus not much is going on bloom wise.
