Color in February

While the Febuary landscape is still mostly a plate of browns and soft greens, there is some color to be found. Our hellbores have started to bloom.The first two plants in the front flower bed have begun to open in the last few days. One is a double in soft pink and the other a single in dark purple. We will enjoy their blooms for the next few weeks and the pollinators will have a great source of food.

We also have a new witch hazel that has begun to open. Its first long yellow "petals' have just begun to unfurl out of the small brown buds.
