On a warm 59f (15c) afternoon this week my back yard beckoned. While raking up branches and fir cones, I found some little lovelies offering color along the way.
Many primroses have been blooming all winter. These white ones look especially pretty.
Over the years I have introduced and transplanted Lenten Roses for their characteristics as shade-tolerant evergreen ground cover and long-lasting early bloomers. Now I enjoy many stands of white and purple hellebores from winter through spring.
As part of my bird habitat regimen, I leave dry hydrangea blossoms on through winter. While trimming the remaining heads, I found this outlier!
With more mild weather predicted this week-end, I’ll be outside playing rather than inside blogging!
