I am afraid these brave souls will regret sticking out their tender heads since it's supposed to be in the 20's by morning. I carefully covered up the bleeding hearts and sedum with leaf cover and told them not to wake up just yet. The 2 tiny winter honeysuckle blooms smelled so sweet. It was like a breath of spring to see and smell the stirrings of life already. God's magical cycle of life is truly amazing in the plant world. I'm so blessed to live in the South where the winters are not so harsh and long. Happy New Year everyone and may your gardens (and YOU) prosper!
