January 23-29 A Winter Image

I couldn't stray outside the yard yesterday, but here are some reminders of either days gone by or those yet to come. ;-)

A variety of low-growing sedum

and
Heuchera "Lime Rickey"
And I know these aren't wildflowers, but it is evidence of plant life in Winter. And the amended rules tell us we can enter domestic flowers or plants during this season. ;-)

Lovely winter photos, thanks for the heads up on the winter garden photo contest, I know exactly what picture I am going to send.

Shady Gardener said...

Yea! I'm going to watch for it. ;-)

Lovely pictures, I especially like the low-growing sedum. Do have a rock garden?

Shady Gardener said...

I do have a bitty rock garden in front of the house. Low growing sedum are a perfect plant. :-) Thanks for visiting.

I greatly enjoy reading about how gardeners occupy themselves during winter. I hope your bread-baking adventures go well. There's something about cold weather and comfort food that work well together.

Shady Gardener said...

You're right about cold weather and comfort foods. I have to admit that I may have rushed the "second rise" of the bread somewhat. So, it's not photo-worthy. (It does taste good, however!) I'll try again.

Thanks for stopping. I'll be over your way to visit. :-)

I have some sedum and colorful Heuchera in my flower beds... BUT, all covered with snow.

Isn't this fun.

Thanks for stopping, Pamela.
Because Tuesday's weather was extremely windy, we were quite fortunate that we didn't have much snow left. Snow is in the forecast, however. It's still Winter. ;-)

Your little plants are being insulated. That's a good thing.
