Some plants just won't give up. On Tyee Spit, the rosebushes are bare sticks, the Queen Anne's lace is reduced to dry, brown heads on empty stalks. Only the grass is green; the blades will stay green, even sleeping under a snow coverlet, although there will be no new flowering heads until next year. But the gumweed is stubborn. Winter? Freezing nights? No light? So what?

You never know! A bee just might come by: we're ready for him!

Three new flower heads on the way.

Grasses and yarrow, sleeping.


  1. Dried seed heads are still beautiful. - Margy

  2. those are Yarrow heads

    1. Thank you! Too sleepy! I'll correct the post.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
