It's over. Winter, I guess. I left town this weekend and was amazed at what I missed....here are some things that caught my eye before dinner this afternoon, although I've been scheming about which photos to shoot for over a week now. Enjoy!
Pictured from top to bottom L to R:
fresh leaves from my pint sized Dawn Redwood
white candytuft blooms
old fashioned bluebells
Dutch iris and a 'knockout rose'
a tiny leaf from a my celeste fig
flower clusters from a red-twig dogwood
small pecan leaves and pollen clusters against the sky
poet's narcissus 'actaea'
Carolina jessamine vine
'mellow yellow' a trademarked version of Spiraea thunbergi 'Ogon' that I picked up at the JC Raulston plant distribution-event two or three years ago. ... I was a week or two late to catch it covered in white flowers.
