Today I strolled around our yard in what is supposed to be the dead of winter. At first glance there certainly are a lot of brown, dead looking plants. But, after looking a little closer I found some signs of life. The earliest bloomers are gearing up for Spring!
This is an old flowering Quince Bush. Don't let the delicate blooms fool you. There are thorns in there!!
This is an equally old Camellia Bush.
Of course there are yellow daffodils in this spot every year this time.
Its been a very mild winter. You just can't beat days in the 70s in January!
