February in my Garden



Imitation is the best form of flattery, they say, and for this post, I blatantly imitated Sharon of My French Country Home in making a mood board of what's happening in my garden these days. I went out in between the raindrops and took a few clippings of shrubs and flowers. A very few flowers.


Viburnum and moss seem to go together well.
 

Snowdrops on a salal leaf. 
 

More viburnum. Such delicate little flowers.

Everything is fresh and damp after all the rain we've been having. The slugs are happy, too. I discovered a tiny one on a leaf, probably wondering where he was.

These are my offerings for Vee's Note Card Party, held each month. Click on the link to join in or view other note card possibilities.

  3. Oh, what a lovely mood board and just what I needed to see today. Nothing green and growing here - still in the throes of winter of course, but your garden has me dreaming of Spring. Thanks so much for sharing, Lorrie!

  10. Lorrie...these are wonderful. There is not much growing in my yard at the moment. The moss in your photo is similar to what we have in our yard instead of grass. We live on a heavily wooded lot and grass doesn't grow well...but this moss flourishes! Lovely set of note cards :)

  12. I like the idea of a mood board, a nice way to share snippets from the garden. I'd like to try this when our spring flowers arrive, if I can wait another 8-10 weeks. :-)

  31. I can see that you have a lot of things springing forth in your garden already, Lorrie. My snowbanks are growing, but that's about all at the moment.

    It's pretty how you have the items arranged and I popped over to the link provided to see you inspiration. Lovely.

  32. Lovely photos for a set of notecards! I'm on the other end of the country (N.B.) and my garden is buried under feet of snow... no color here yet.. just plain ole white! lol Thanks for the taste (and hope) of spring!

  34. Whoever had the idea first, it’s a very imaginative one. The tiny flowers of February don’t make a great impact on the shrub, so separating them and displaying them like this is brilliant.

  35. Lorrie,

    Your February garden is beautifully bright and misty and colourful and green. And uplifting, of moods!

    Such a charming arrangement!
