We had such a hot, dry spring and summer here it caused many of my perennials outside that normally bloom at that time to stop growing and go sort of dormant and not produce any blooms. Now that it's the middle of November and we've had some rain and a few light over-night frosts some of those dormant spring/summer plants have perked up from the chill and finally started producing some flowers. Hiding in among the winter savory branches there's even a tiny alpine strawberry plant that has little red flowers and green strawberries on it.

Apparently it may snow here tonight and this might be my last chance to photograph them so I went out this morning after last night's frost had melted and took some close-up pictures of some of the flowers. Plus 3 of my indoor houseplants too. Do you see the little bat shape in the throat of the second orchid plant?

Do you have any flowers blooming now? Please post your pictures here too.
