Here are a few of the more colorful zebra prints. I see I cut off the head on the one on the bottom right. It is a print that you would swear is tapestry fabric until you touch it and it is ordinary quilting fabric.
This is another group of fabric I found on the shelf. It is similar to shot cotton as it is metallic thread one direction and cotton thread the other. If you click on the photo to enlarge you will see the shine.
I put these 4 pots in the corner for protection from the winter weather and I had forgotten what was in them. Obviously one is a hosta but I haven't checked the others yet.
The cranesbill in the west garden is big and bushy and has buds on it. We just need some warm days and it will be blooming.
This is one of the early hostas in the same bed. You can see another in the top right corner. That is what most of the other hostas look like right now.
The periwinkle vinca blooms off and on even in the winter so I can't call it one of my early spring flowers. We got more rain last night. Now we need a few sunny days but it sounds like a week of rain.
