Although it is February and we have had a more than fair amount of snow in Istanbul, we do have some flowers to cheer us up. This quince bush thrives in between a busy gas station and the ferry landing in Kabatas.
Nearby, pansies, planted in December, still have beautiful faces.
In Emirgan, yellow flowering trees are in bloom at the Sakip Sabanci Museum.
Not many days ago, we had just a dusting of snow. Have you seen snow on a palm tree before?
Inside, at the Istinye Park shopping mall, someone made an outstanding display of purple orchids.
A couple of cats posed for me in February. This well fed cat rests on a wall outside of a fish restaurant in Yenikoy.
And this beautiful gray cat hangs out at the Kucuksu Palace.
February had beauty, but I am looking forward to a warmer March!
