Pursed lip red Camellia buds await warmer days to reveal their true color.
Those in a more sheltered spot have already begun to open again.
Dogwood leaves stayed green until well into the winter, the freeze turned them burnt orange.
Violas survived the freeze, bright orange and yellow in the sunshine.
Look! There's hyacinth foliage just above that leaf.
Variegated yellow leaves on a rooted cutting from the old euonymous that used to form hedges here. Spiderwort will soon put on buds, while shasta daisies await warm spring days.
Greyed greens of rose campion and spanish lavender complement the greens of a mossy stone.
Blue foliage of dianthus 'Bath's pink' spilling over stone is joined by California poppy seedlings of almost the same hue.
Glorious blue skies are marked by a vapor trail above Little Gem magnolia foliage.
Purple violas with yellow faces complete the spectrum.
This is my take on the winter Rainbow Garden Invitation from Rebecca @ In the Garden.
