I almost missed it but last week marked the first anniversary of this blog. It has become a fun weekly project that I enjoy. Using a camera to capture plant growth and flowers for the blog has opened my eyes. It has changed my focus from the macro to the micro. I now see details that I never took the time to appreciate fully. I am richer for having started this blog.
This should have been our last real winter weather week. I saw swelling buds and new growth as I cleaned beds this week. My Lenten Rose is showing new growth but it is late. It's a good thing that Lent is late this year or it would be blooming after Easter. I'm not real fond of Lenten Rose mostly because the flower opens downward and you can't really see it. I've seen a variety at the nursery that opens facing upward so might consider trying one of them.
