A Few of My Favorite (Random) Things

On Hellebore Watch

This is the time of year  I love to start walking my garden, looking for signs of life - and other interesting things.

Yesterday, I found this fungus growing on the roots of my black cherry tree stump.


And I found some crocus beginning to pop through.


(Remember all those bulbs I planted last fall?  I can't quite remember where I put them all now, but I'm waiting for them to show themselves . . . wherever they are.)

And, in continuing coverage of my hellebores, the buds are really getting ready to pop.  (See them?  Way down in the middle of the plant?)

Soon, there will be blooms again! 

(But first, there will be snow.)  (Eight inches or so on the way.)
