Anyhow, here are some closeup shots of what's looking nice in my garden right now.
|I have several Hellebores, but this one is the closest to flowering|
|One of several profusely flowering Sweetbox -- such a delicious scent!|
Last weekend we had a major windstorm, which left my garden littered with Douglas fir boughs and cones. One quite large bough fell on one of my few blooming plants, a Mahonia 'Charity', and as I pulled it off and dragged it onto the patio, I couldn't help noticing it had some pretty lichens on it.
|This pattern beneath my fall-planted Schefflera delavayi is evidence of the recent windstorm -- that little branch was blown ragged sweeping back and forth across the soil!|
|Here's some un-fabulous foliage I could do without -- a corner of the garden that is rapidly getting over-run with shotweed.|
Here's hoping we get some weather soon that is conducive to gardening. Oh, one piece of good news -- my back is so much better after about 4 months of rest, that it barely registered all that work earlier this week. My legs and arms ached from crawling around, but not my back.
