Dormant? It certainly looks that way with the bare raspberries and currants under a light dusting of snow. And, since I no longer grow vegetables, there are no winter leeks to harvest. It’s just the fruit and herbs…and the snow.
But…despite that snow, the mint has sprouted new green shoots.
And the rhubarb is showing a little sign of life – a leaf just beginning to unfurl. The snow is always short-lived and does not seem to affect the new growth.
Then, the buds are forming on the rosemary, soon to be tiny blue flowers. Such a hearty plant!
And, last but not least, I noticed the other day growing along the wall of the house the young Japanese quince. Its pink blossom is a harbinger of spring to come. I think it is one of the most beautiful flowers. Gives you hope.
Tasks to be done:
- Be patient
