You know that spring-like feeling you get when the temperature rises enough to notice a real difference, and you walk around your garden with anticipation, hoping to see something poking through the ground, or a bud beginning to open? Well, I had that feeling today, only it’s February 1st, and it’s definitely not spring. BUT, it had all the signs of spring – high 50’s and….
my strategically-placed witch hazel so I can see it from my kitchen window –
jumped at the chance to start opening a few buds – (I really need a new camera that takes great close-up photos, but in the meantime, click on the photo for proof)
There is nothing quite like a winter-blooming plant! (except that the Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl?)
