GBBD: January 2012
My hellebore have been shooting up new growth, budding and blooming.
The heather mingled amongst the azaleas are blooming and giving some winter color to the garden.
Two plants, considered weeds by most, are readily blooming. Dandelions, a member of the Asteraceae family, are edible. Often used as a tea it helps kidney function and dissipates gallstones. They are remarkably nutritional being extremely high in vitamins A & C and beta carotene and potassium, iron and copper. If you do eat them be sure that they haven;t been treated with chemicals.
