Deciduous Plants in the Snow

Witchhazel blossom remnants.

Sedum, "Autumn Joy".

Evening Primrose seed pods, chewed open by birds.

Bee balm seed pod.

This photo was taken on January 1, of mustard growing in the cracks right in front of the garage. The micro-climate in that spot kept it growing long after the other mustard volunteers had died off. It was the last deciduous plant in the yard to stay green. Now it is beneath a layer of ice.

Perhaps in the future we can use the location to our advantage.
