It's the 15th of the month again - time for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day! Since there aren't many blooms in my cold yard this time of year, I went on the hunt for texture. I also tried a different camera, lens and method than usual ("usual" being point & shoot). So, yes, this is all an experiment. Here goes!
First up is a clematis, with a glimpse of the past....
....and the future.
I had to double-check to make sure this wasn't a caterpillar on the heuchera:
Looking at Forget-Me-Nots this way makes them look a tad classier than in my usual photos!
The ferns are slowly awakening from their winter slumber....
These tiny yellow flowers are on a pygmy barberry. These plants have some sort of interest (berries, variegated leaves, blooms, etc.) pretty much year 'round.
What's this? It's a baby poppy! A sure sign that warmer days are ahead.
Thanks for looking at the results of my experiment! Maybe next month there will be some actual blooms. :-)
