Unfortunately this month I don't have much to off in the line of blooms. I won't bore you with the Kalanchoe that is still blooming from last month as it is still blooming but not a vigorously. If you want to have a look at it you can here. I walked around today and found only a few buds on the Red Head Pieris (Perisjaponica 'Red Head'). This slow growing ever green bush is trying to set some buds even though it is so cold. The only other thing that is blooming around here are the Snowdrops and I have shown them a couple of times already. I can't help myself they are so appreciated this time of year. If you need a Snowdrop fix you can look here or here.
As you can see even though we are having some sunshine and blue skies we are still in the grips of winter.
While outside I was surprised by a golden glob of what I thought was a mushroom of some sort. Lookie here says I to myself I have found something I have never seen in my garden before. It appeared to be coming right out of the leaf litter. Sure enough it did..I got real brave and reached down to see what it felt like and discovered it was a hunk of styrofoam of some sort. I wonder where in the world it came from?? Were you fooled too?? Somebody please say yes.. Idon't want to be the only one.
