echinacea, I don’t tidy until spring so the birds and I can enjoy them all winter:) These are of course not this year echinacea but last years, but I thought they looked cool with snow on them

Julie Child’s rose, which contrary to what others have said, is a strong licorice scented rose in my gardens:)

Big hugs to all who visit Comfrey Cottages xx

I've been out in the garden this morning looking for nettles. Nothing yet ;-(.
Want to make a soup and tea and....
Your foto's made me realize that I'm a very impatient woman ;-).
Lucky your bees are doing well!!!
love, Hanneke

These nettles are still very tiny and not enough to have soup or tea yet either, Hanneke :( Our winter has been highly, highly unusual... much gentler than usual, much warmer. I can be a bit impatient also;D
I was so happy the bees survived!
Love to you Hanneke

Its lovely to see signs of Spring in another part of the world. I am glad to see your honeysuckle as I couldn't believe it when I saw it here - just learning. I will go out this weekend and take lots of photos of Spinging at Springfield to share with you. Jox

You're seeing the same signs of Spring as I am - without the snow in my case though - thank goodness!

We just had that late day snow, and in two days, it was gone! We have hardly had any snow this year! Crazy!!
