Disappeared once again!
The sap which should be rising at this time of year must be forced into quite a dance in the trees and other plants but this aubretia remains unfazed - snow or no snow. It is growing on the wall of the old farm barn T has recently cleared out and was self-seeded many decades ago. I just trim it back in the autumn (if I can reach high enough!).
The snow and ice are vanishing and the temperature has risen. Chores around the house this morning. Other than those a lazy day!
