Red creeping thyme leaves are beautifully red when the snow melts. Once things warm up and the sun shines on the plants, the leaves will turn back to a beautiful dark green. I can't be sure, but I really think this plant grew larger under the snow. I don't remember it's cascading down through the stones like this last fall.
This photograph was taken before the rain. It is raining pretty hard. I can hear geese flying overhead. Apparently they don't mind getting wet. Rain will take away the snow and more of the garden will begin to show. Of course the soil is way to wet to do anything, but with Ed's stone paths we can walk in the garden and inspect everything. Probably the glimpse will be brief because I know we haven't seen our last snow storm. I can remember a snowstorms in mid- May here. Still it's great to get a chance to look in on old plant friends and make plans . Finally February is finished for another year!
