Warm and Windy January

The heather is budding, should be flowering soon.

A caterpillar moves slowly through the geraniums. Aren't they meant to be in a cocoon by now?

The fierce wind blows everything down. There are branches from the neighbor's beech all over.. covered by a lovely moss, or is it lichen?

Salix, I've only seen heather as a potted plant - both Northern Illinois and Central Texas are too alkaline for it to grow well in the ground. Your white-flowered one in the photo looks so pretty, and reminds me of the old show-tune about "The Heather on The Hill."

Happy 2007!
