...hoping....


...that the snow and frost and cold wind doesn't kill the pretty fuzzy little buds on the tree in our backyard...

...one of the joys of moving in the wintertime is that you sometimes have to wait until spring to identify all of your trees and plants...

We had fun finding all of the plants at our place too!

No snow here [of course], but now I am prayful for nothing but warm temperatures as everything is in full bud here.

Do you think that is a magnolia? There is a tree near me and it has that sort of bud.

Hmm that looks like a Japanese Magnolia-one of my favorites!

Whatever it is, I expect it is something that doesn't grow in North Dakota!

Our last move was to Northern Michigan in January. The neighbors were able to tell us a bit, but I was shocked by the epic peony hedges that came up! Makes me sad to think we'll probably be leaving them soon as well...
