We've had a lot of rain, followed by freezing temps, so there's not much abloom, but I found a few things.
This rose bud will never open, but it still holds on to its pretty pink.
OK, these are done blooming, but the rose hips still have a flower form.
I found several colors of scraggly, slug chewed primroses.
The Pieres Japonica buds will take their time opening, but they add winter interest.
These mop head hydrangeas have managed to hang on to some of their color.
Is this Kaffir Lily ( Schizostylis coccinea) too early or too late?
In a pot on the patio, this Heucherella didn't want to be shown up by the gaudy flowering kale.
We just added this winter blooming Mahonia. Hopefully it will grow big and supply winter food for the Anna's Hummingbirds that are year round here.
Some of the candy tuft, Iberis sempervirens, must have been fooled by warmer weather earlier.
Now it's shivering in the cold.
Viburnum davidii buds show pink through the Christmas light netting.
Oh good, the Sarcococca buds are opening. Soon I'll bring some sprigs inside to perfume the air.
Buds look like they are ready to pop, but they'll just tease up through March, most likely.
