Winter on the Green

Winter is never lifeless. Many of the plants that live for years die back to the ground, but if you look you can see the new leaves waiting to grow:



Mullein and hollyhock


Then there are the plants that are green all winter long:


Various groundcovers


                Wild strawberries                                                        Irises


The first bulbs have poked their noses above the soil

And the hellebore is budding!

Winter is, however, very much still with us. The day after I took those pictures…
