Flowers out of the snow! In California! Asher, you're a magician!
Snow in Beverly Hills?

That is simply impossible. The City Council would never allow that!

Honestly, we have no snow ever!

However we can ski at many mountain resorts till early May!

Last year, for our exhibition, 'Un peu de rouge, pourtant." I bought some (hard to find) non cut white peonies.
After the shoot, we planted one of the peony plants on our terrace... Hoping that it would give us beautiful flowers in 2020…
While, during the Winter, there were nothing to see, no branch, the plant started to grow3 weeks ago. Now it is about a foot high!
There we go, not quite yet, but soon! Blooming will go straight to my heart :)

A spammer posted here so I BCWas fortunate to find myself here again!

I love these flower boxes. Do you have a back yard or apartment or roof garden?

Show us your balcony, Jérôme. We don’t have that culture here in Los Angeles or anywhere in the USA I have seen.

But I guess it might happen in New Orleans.

I have been up on the balcony of Nicolas and his wife, Marine in their apartment in Bordeaux! I love the atmosphere.

It is a small balcony, so difficult to photography unless using a 360° panorama camera. I prefer to take samples:
