February: The house is just alive with flora! It's a poor substitute for the virility of summer, but it's great to have green (and gold!) things sprouting and spreading in every little sun-starved nook. Photos: Forsythia stems forced into bloom in the garden room; purple hyacinths about to bloom on the night table; paperwhites in bloom near the window in the bedroom; Star of Bethlehem amaryllis in bloom in the garden room.
