Where I live, the only living flowers in February are found indoors. So it's a wonderful experience to be in a climate, even for just a short time, where flowers can flourish outdoors throughout the year. I found the one in the photo posted below on a tree I was sitting under while waiting at a park. I haven't determined yet what type of tree it was, but the flower caught my eye. Perhaps people who live in a climate where this is a normal occurrence in February don't take particular notice; sometimes we can take the beauty that surrounds us for granted.
