Bloom Day: January

Here it is the 15th of the month, and there is only one flower visible (or within reach) to photograph.

Up here in the Convergence Zonewe get a lot of snow compared to Seattle and nearby suburbs. The forecast says to expect snow for several more days and we are off to a good start.  By the end of the week we may have to dig ourselves out.

Even though all of our plants may be covered in snow – we can still enjoy the gorgeous structure of many of the trees.
