There is so little to photograph in my garden. It looks so forlorn and sad right now. I did a chilly walk-through yesterday and noticed a few blossoms on my winter honeysuckle (Lonicera fragrantissima). I snipped off the branch and brought them indoors to share a vase with my wintersweet. (Chimonanthus praecox) so I guess I shouldn't report that nothing is going on in the garden.

On Saturday, one of my daughters and I slipped over to the Habitat for Humanity Restore to take a look around. I was surprised to find out that everything was 50%. While foraging in their yard area I hoped I might find a quirky treasure for the garden. I did!
This is the upper part of a vintage wood stove. Look at all the lichen and crusty stuff, the scroll work on top and the label still attached to the front.
Pretty cool, huh? Okay, don't judge me. Only a junque person can really appreciate this awesome relic and if you prefer more artsy garden ornamentation, just nod your head and humor me, okay? Thanks.
My daughter twisted my arm and begged me to buy these primroses to provide a teensy bit of color in the garden. I hesitated, not really all that excited, but after some deliberation, I acquiesced. Do you believe that? Okay good.
