One Brave little Rosebud!

This brave little rosebud making it's debut
during this crazy Texas weather...
warm one day then snow
drought for weeks on end
then teasing rain...

but this little bud is preserved
for the remainder of this Winter
so instead of my wondering
what it might have been...

I choose to view it's total splendor
as it is.

Asparagus Fern in Winter

I love Asparagus Fern!

I over-winter mine in it's original pot.
I place the pot in the gardens.
The dormant asparagus fern 
adds a new dimension
to the winter evergreens
and the fallen leaves
that blanket the flower beds.
And now I wait...patiently...
for Spring and the renewal
of my Asparagus Fern!
