And . . . we merge Day 5 of 7 Posts, 7 Days with 7 Quick Takes Friday! I'm tossing in my end-of-month garden views, as well!
I was a bit afraid that the Garden Views: End of February wouldn't look all that different from Garden Views: End of December or Garden Views: End of January. Happily, there are some differences, which goes to show that each month has its own beauty.
~ ONE ~
|The snow mound: a mere shadow of itself!|
The last big snow was a big one, so despite one warm-up and a lot of warm rain, traces do remain. This is what was left of the big mounds of snow that were created from shoveling the driveway.
~ TWO ~
The hungry birds have just about emptied the cupboards. No berries left on any of the holly bush; the privet is just about picked clean. I can hear the robins every morning, now. They must be eating other things.
~ THREE ~
This is the elderberry. Not ready to burst for a while, yet, but the buds are more plump than they were.
~ FOUR ~
|One lovely forsythia|
|Another lovely forsythia|
~ FIVE ~
The grasses that provided some winter interest will be cut down in the next few weeks.
~ SIX ~
~ SEVEN ~
|Spring will return!!|
|7 Quick Takes ROCKS!|
