Green and Brown

It has been rainy and pretty blah out lately but we have not had any snow yet.  The weather people tell us this is a rarity for this area.  We usually have at least one snow fall by now.  When I was out poking around the yard I noticed that there is still green plants that are holding up quite well.  This Donkey Tail Spurge looks lovely with its bluey-green foliage.

The Heuchera 'Marmalade' looks pretty perky yet and provides a little colour.

The Elijah Blue Grass looks great.   The worry I have in the long run is whether this winter we are going to have a good snow cover.  I noticed lots of bare spots where I have not mulched enough and if there is not sufficient snow cover these plants will suffer and perhaps die.  I must make an effort to get out there and find some compost or leaves to insulate them them from the cold.

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
