Laura Rose said...

cool, you have lots more than me!!

Maybe a few..not most. I am soo happy that your Green Ones have already popped their heads up. I found out yesterday that my St. Johnswort is already green and growing. Just like you said...It looks like the top layer of plant died off and insulated the bottom growth..Yippy. It made its own blanket for the winter.

Oh, Annie and Laura ... I'l bet there's more that you've 'noticed.' Keep in mind - I'm using the macro "lens' to capture these images!

And Ry - Yay!!!!!

Lovely photos. I'm in the UK and my daffodils are flowering. My sorrel is so dense that I cut loads of it and made sorrel and green lentil soup at the weekend. My parsley never died off and I have lettuce which has sprung up from somewhere. Purple fennel fronds are already showing but I really must get down to sowing seeds really soon

Lovely plant walk! I also have daffodils in bloom (western Oregon) & overwintered parsley, baby corn salad, a bit of chickweed in the flower pots on my porch! I can just taste the nettles :)

Hey thanks everyone, glad you enjoyed the virtual weed walk! A LOT more has sprouted since ... so, more soon!

I hope our other weed whisperers show what's up in their little realms too!

Okay, I give up...where's the Entrecard drop widget?

Hi, came here via Dia...

I'm am so envious, to be able to eat right from your own patch of Mother Earth (I live close to a major highway and industrial area) ~ what a blessing! Really enjoyed the photos, thank you.

Peace,
Lil
