I tried to get my Word Play for Jan finished but I think it will be tomorrow not today. I am going to show my start for the new year tomorrow. Today, I'm taking you for a walk around our yard. Our average temps this time of year are in the 40's. I hope you enjoy this short walk.
This is one of two planters by the garage. It looked very sad after our very cold snap in Dec. but it has come back nicely.
A red twig dogwood at the front entrance.
We use this little front porch a lot. It is covered and we often sit out there and read or have our coffee even in the winter.
This bush is called Garrya Elliptica.
We planted it because of this winter interest. Some call them flowers.
I love the dogwood, mid-winter fire. It is spectacular when it snows!
I hope the front door says welcome.
Helleboras niger,"Winter Rose" is blooming right now!
These Hellebors are on their way!
The little Anna's hummingbird we fed through the cold spell each morning very early as they feed around sunrise. ( I do have a very sweet DH, he did those early morning feedings).
Look who finally arrived !The pileated wood pecker.
Have a great New Year's Eve and a most Happy and healthy New Year to you all!!!!!!
