Greetings! Here's an assortment of random foliage shots from my winter garden.
A lone dwarf pomegranate fruit, frozen and dried on the tree.
A Texas red oak, stubbornly holding on to all its bottom leaves. The top leaves fell off during the recent rain.
"Red Carpet" sedum, nestled close to the stones outlining the front stone path. The largest rosette is no bigger than a dime.
Unidentified sedum (probably S. hispanicum) and elfin thyme, both even tinier than the "Red Carpet" sedum above.
Bare stems of "Indigo Spires" salvia. The green leaves near the base of the plant give me hope it will return in the spring.
Thanks to Pam at the ultimate Austin garden blog, "Digging", for hosting Foliage Follow-Up, on the 16th of every month, the day after Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Click on the link to take a peek at the fantastic colors of her “Sticks on Fire” euphorbia and purple “Santa Rita” prickly pear.
