A Closer Look (Favorite Thing Saturday #18)

Took a few photos this afternoon. It stays light until around 5PM these days here.

The clematis seeds are fun to look at because they are so varied.Jan5-2013Clematis1Jan5-2013Clematis2Jan5-2013Clematis3Jan5-2013Clematis4

The inflorescences on the grasses are different as well.Jan5-2013GrassA Jan5-2013GrassB

Time to collect some seeds for Verbena bonariensis…or simply let them seed about on their own.Jan5-2013VerbenaBonariensis

Allium thunbergii ‘Ozawa‘ always looks sweet in the snow.Jan5-2013AlliumOzawa

I was quite surprised to see these buds on the white lilac already!Jan5-2013WhiteLilac

Have you checked out your shrubs and perennials lately? Maybe spring isn’t so far off after all! A girl can dream….

    I thought I saw buds on my lilac the other day. I hope I was hallucinating! It would sure be nice to have an early spring. Your photos are lovely.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week1

  6. Your photos of the grasses and seed pods in the snow are really lovely. There is so much beauty in the world around us, no matter what season.
