OK, should have much more color from flowers this month, although I thought we did well coming up with other ways color works in gardens over winter. Here is a misnamed heath, Erica carnea 'December Red'. This is a photo in full bloom last year (on a sunny day which I have not seen in quite some time now). It is just now opening up, about 1/3 of the bush is showing color. Just checked my witchhazel, still not quite opened, but getting closer.

And here's the ever-popular sarcococa which my nose cannot even discern the tiniest fragrance from. Weird, as I know from others that it actually has a very pervading scent.

My local Haggen has plants! Such a treat to just toss one in when grocery shopping - and I probably go every 3-4 days. So far, I've added a couple heathers - grasses and groundcovers on the horizon.

Yep, Haggen has a nice selection during the growing season. I find a few jumping in my cart as well. Whistling

Beneath the soggy fall leaves and after yanking out the encroaching buttercups, emerging tiarella 'Iron Butterfly' gives me a bit of color.

Nice, Julia. Must be fun to be able to get out of the wind/rain and enjoy some blooms.
