winter gardening

I planted a handful of daffodils last weekend. The image to the left is 'Ice Follies'; can't wait to see them come up this spring! I was pleased to find that it was relatively easy to dig the 6" daffodil holes in most areas of the garden. I sprinkled a few by the back door, some on either side of the front steps, and a few on the other side of the driveway.

While I was digging, I noticed that the pachysandra has spread even more, with little shoots coming up about 12-18" from the large clump near the back door. This time of year, garden troopers like Pachysandra and Lenten Rose (Helleborus) really shine while everything else is dormant.
