It wasn't easy finding anything awake yet, but just when I was about to give up, I found this little guy waiting by the faucet for the horse area. It's about the size of a nickel.

Speaking of snow storm ... here is what my SFG and other veggie area looks like after the recent snow and ice storm.



That is my new Avatar.

Looks like something trying to wake up in the lower left corner. I'm in shock here, going from this to newbeone's 90 degree posting about shade cloth. (Giggle -- no pun intended about the 90 degrees.)

CN ... I believe that is a small holly plant in Mrs TD's flower garden.

OK so I finally found something alive!  Other than my mache, which is AMAZING!

It is my neighbors ghost lilies!  They grow. Just the green part, in spring, and then later, in July these bare stalks appear with awesome pink flowers atop the stalk!  No foliage with the blooms!  So strange!

I will take pics!

I found the first sign of spring when I pulled back the bridal tulle - a white butterfly! Shocked

I thought the tulle was for keeping them on the outside. Rolling Eyes

Not many days left in February, but I found something awake: Snowdrops!

I have some of those too from my Grandma's garden (she passed in 1983 so mine are pretty old).  They just keep multiplying.  She called them "Naked Ladies" so that's what I call them.   Smile  She was also a gardener, but it was a survival thing not a hobby.  I can remember her cellar being full of jars she had canned.  Our favorite gift from her was her pickled peaches.

March has to be "Wearin' of the Green!" Right? When leprechauns shake out their pipe tobacco, these little shamrock poufs sprout up, so this will be my March avatar as soon as I get to my other computer where I can size it down.

Cruel, CC.  You could have covered it and given it a little time to live. Sad Actually, I did laugh, a little bit.
