January Color

The fog of the last 10 days has finally lifted, to be replaced by grey skies and drizzling rain. The landscape seems to be an endless palate of greens, browns and grays. The lone exception to this muted palate is the Witch Hazel in the front flowerbed. Each January, its buds bursts open to reveal shocking red, spider-like blooms. It is always the first color of the new gardening year, reminding us of all that is yet to come.
