The back garden in January

Clematis vine wrapping around trellis.

These pictures were taken in the back garden a week or two ago when the weather was still so nice. (An hour or so after I took these pictures, I was able to enjoy a beer out on the front steps with a few books. That is not something one expects to do in January in Minnesota.)

Echinacea seedheads. They look like little wizard hats.

Not sure what grass this is. Or maybe it's a SEDGE for all I know.

The foliage of ubiquitous day lilies mingled with oak leaves.

My lifeblood resting on the little patio.

Pretty grass draped over the old stump in the garden.

Not too sure what this is, sadly.

I think this is goldenrod.

Day lily leaves draped over the steps leading down to the ravine.

The requisite shadow self-portrait.

Globe allium.

The slope beyond the seed head (bee balm, I think) was deadly icy.

Fabric scrap in the leaves.
