March in January

I didn't think I would be posting a picture like this so soon. We had rain over night that melted a lot of the snow cover. The snow you see is in places that are pretty much shaded all day this time of year. The garden is situated so that the bench faces south. The sun is out and the wind is blowing. It feels like March, but I know that February is next, and this is a brief chance to visit the plants that are usually hiding under the snow. I tried to cage the rose campion, but most of the cages are frozen to the ground. I did find one, and put it over the plant, but the ground is hard just an inch under the surface and the cage might not stay put.
