My oasis in the grips of Winter

Yesterday was a bitterly cold winter day. I didn't dare open the greenhouse as the high was -20 C. I knew there were some things peaking, budding, and in full bloom. Today was much better, still bitter,  -15, so I opened the greenhouse, and snapped a few photos as quickly as I could.
