Reds of Winter


The 'reds' of a wild rose bush that blooms near the meadow.
More red scattered all around the edges of the woods. I am not sure what this bush is but I am sure to look for it while it is green in the spring.


It is amazing to me how the winter makes the garden a whole new world to discover. This is the first time that I have noticed the color red along the wood line of our property back near the meadow. I know I looked for color back in that area in the summer in search of more then just green. I had found some wild trumpet vine and a cluster of wild phlox blooming in light purple. My favorite is the wild rose bushes that bloom in white and pink along that walk to the woods. I will be sure to pay attention to what this plant is next time everything is blooming in the summer.

I am hoping these Reds of Winter warmed up your day as much as they have mine. Signing off for now from the extremely cold ( -2* RIGHT NOW!) Snow covered BG Garden.

Like my new signature... .it is me and JACK!

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comments. I agree that we've got a long way to go before our Gov. is out of office. Al least we seem to be headed in the right direction-Finally! :}

Try to stay warm this weekend.
