So, while many of you have been recieving lots of wonderful, wet snow. .
we are getting tiny amounts of dry snow or drizzling ice. Enough to be a pain and very little fun!
However we are probably also enjoying warmer weather too. Today it topped out at 58 degrees. While Cami was napping, I couldn't resist taking a walk through the yard to see what was going on.
I found a few things that looked hopeful!
Here's a tiny sprout of Autumn Joy sedum making a comeback from beneath the leaves!
I was really surprised to see how many of my plants have remained green, even after 3 months of cold and freezing weather. This snapdragon near the pond is still green at the base. .as are all my other snaps in the various beds. They are sold as annuals. .but seem to be tender perennials in my area. Many of the shastas, hollyhocks, lambs ear, honeysuckle and butterfly bushes still have green leaves at the ground. And the butterfly bushes actually have nice, green, tender, pliable leaves all the way to the top of the bush. Hmmm!
