Yesterday I was visiting Sue Reed, author of the excellent Energy Wise Landscape Design, to talk about her book and our local landscape. You will be hearing more about our talk soon. Before I left we walked around the house to see how she had edited and added to the elements of her own landscape. More on that later, too. As we came around the southern corner of the house we saw this energetic bunch of Johnny Jump Ups still in bloom. Sometimes we overestimate the length of winter. It hasn’t begun yet if you ask these johnnies.
Katrina, I don’t have much blooming on my windowsill, but I just had to post about these brave johnnies. To see what else is blooming logon to Roses and Stuff.

They are indeed brave. I’ve long been a fan of Johnny Jump Ups. (Johnnies Jump Up? Oh, well, never mind!)
Tinky – It isn’t blooming, but I am able to harvest a few green fennel fronds for the Gourmet Club dinner tomorrow night. The theme is Rome. Ancient.
And I’m so glad you did! We could do with some optimistic creatures this time of year!
Nice to find your blog. Have a nice day/Gela
