Spring flowers


I guess since it is February that would technically be winter flowers.  Which would be appropriate since those flowers pictured above were regenerated by Russian scientists from seed tissue found in a 30,000 year old squirrel burrow in the Siberian permafrost.  One has to wonder how long it will be before we are really seeing a woolly mammoth trundling around.
