Winter Jasmine Brightens My Run

Winter Jasmine Brightens My Run

I was running down the Custis Trail yesterday and saw all this Winter Jasmine hanging along the retaining wall- lovely! Native to China, this is a wonderful early winter bloomer, suggestive of forsythia to come a little later.

GREEN BLESSING

Winter Rose, aka Helleborus

One of the hardiest, prettiest, most deer-resistant winter plants for our region.

Happy New Year!

Winter is in full swing here in the DC area. It won’t be long until we’re seeing the bold yellow of forsythia!
