Nice Cyclamen, but it's not red, looks like a good deep pink.

I did discuss colours with Lori once so I won't say anything whether it is red or pink but it is a fine plant! Does it flower now?

Yes, it is flowering now.  All of the hardy Cyclamens stay green through the Winter here.

They stay green here too and often flower at this time of the year but now it is too cold and 1 inch snow cover. This winter has been much colder than normal :-\

15" of snow here so nothing to see but deer tracks through the garden (sigh...).  It could be worse - they could be elk or moose tracks.  Lucky people to have things actually in bloom!

2ft snow here at our mountain cabin. Nothing but snowclad birches, pines, spruces and junipers. A lot of hare tracks. Hope they leave before spring. Last spring they devoured all the Pulsatilla vernalis buds.

We have a recent set of moose tracks- not sure what they did this time though - I thought they'd already got all the tender woody branches when they came at the beginning of winter (fall)
I'm more worried about what the voles might be doing under the snow- they will have had such a long season by spring that it could be bad.. I had wanted to try some repellents this year, but the first snow caught me offguard- I knew it was going to snow, but didn't expect it to stay! Hopefully they stick to the 'grass' mostly....

Since we're on a roll with yellow flowers with lots of anthers, I give you Adonis amurensis. Just opened up today.
