hope springs eternal

While checking the yard for possible wreath-making bits, I came upon a surprising sight.  Buds! (No, not THAT kind.) Just days after it snowed here!  To be sure, there is puh-lenty of dead stuff.  I was a bit negligent in the putting-the-garden-to-bed area.  I need to do some big time shearing. In the meantime, there is this.

Magnolia

If it EVER stops raining around here,  I will get out and take care of last season’s remnants.  Already looking forward to spring’s plant sales, just around the corner.  After last year, when I went to damn near every local sale, I know which ones are worth it (and which ones are worth the preview ticket).  Bur for now, when we are smack dab in the middle of Christmas, there is this.
