Summer in the library

There may be snow and sleet outside, but by some freak happenstance, all of the flowering plants here at the public library are blooming at the same time. We have three beautiful Christmas cacti in a variety of shades: red, magenta and coral. Our African violet is studded with pretty purple blossoms, and next to it our shamrock plant (or it might be an oxalis...I always mix the two up) is shooting up a few delicate white flowers. Even our peace lily has 4 lovely stalks topped with a pretty white bloom.
It's not the Kew Botanical Gardens, but it's something to notice the next time you come in to the library for a visit.
