Today, my trusty helper (who is laying on my lap assisting my typing at the moment) and I grabbed the camera and went on a stroll through the garden. On the whole, it seems quite dormant, but when I looked closely I saw that actually a lot was happening.
Like these daffodils peeking out.
And there are actually a few brave flowers refusing to fade even with our night freezes.
And most beautiful fruit!
Do you see the buds on our ornamental pear tree?
And an interesting seed pod.
Just look at that color!!
And in our veggie garden, we get to harvest daily from our arugula,
and cilantro. I just love the color the leaves took on after the freezes.
And our collard greens are getting bigger every day!
And then ... we spied these perfect little stick maidens.
I might have to bring them into the house to keep. So pretty!
