Some pictures from my little shade garden late this morning. I suspected that I might see some new growth already and I was right. Some of last year’s growth is quite lovely, too.
Coral bell leaf -- this is the 'Regina' cultivar. I think this looks like a little fan.
Almost all of the moss in my garden is so green, it's nuts. The hillside as seen from the backyard is starting to green up too, and it's all moss, which is nice to sea amidst a sea of brown.
My vinca is already budding.
My lawyers say I have to upload one picture of lichen every day, the tinier and more charming the better.
Jack-in-the-pulpit foliage and fruit. I like that it fades completely.
Sedum against my garden's rock border. I saw what I'm almost positive are new buds on that as well, though I can't say whether the one shown in this picture is from this year or last.
This is a limb of the crabapple tree that fell in the yard. Since the last time I saw it, something has ripped off most of the buds (which are bigger, fuzzier, and more colorful than they typically are this time of year). I was really struck by how bright orange it was underneath the bark.
