Gorgeous bit of colour! Sadly we've had to get rid of the Dogwood in our front garden, it was meant to be a smaller variety but it grew huge each year! It looked lovely but it was crowding out everything else.

Old English - Dagwood, like Dagger. Good for making skewers for cooking on.

You can check it's a true Dogwood when it's in leaf, tear one across and it'll have latex strands:)

Well, since we're discussing dogwood, I did a little mantel spruce up.
"bricked" the opening, (which is really wallpaper!)
and, "planted" some dogwood in the vases LOL
Hey, it's 14 degrees here today!

P.S., it's not really a real fireplace, just an old mantel we found in the woods a long time ago-really just functions as some architectural interest.

Well, between cold spells it warmed up enough for me to plant some garlic so it would get the benefits of over-wintering and I planted one bare root of Comfrey to see how it would fare in these cold days coming. I also put 2 ea of the Comfrey bare root stock in containers in a dark room inside my garage.

I noticed that some of the old garlic not harvested was warmed up enough that I had 6" sprouts coming through the mulch in the bed. Weird! I think the 10 degree F weather with some wind took care of those plants ever surviving. I'm ready for Spring - getting cabin fever even with lots of things that need worked on.

I'm really enjoying seeing everyone's photos! I've started doing short walks each day to try and get my strength back, so yesterday was the first time that I have left the house for a non-medical purpose since JUNE! :eek: I was so happy to be out of the house that I totally forgot to take photos, but I will try and remember tomorrow (y)
