Finally the snow is gone, we're getting some sunny if cool weather, and there are a few green plants starting.
I had a nice afternoon at the Gardens. Not much has sprouted yet, but the buds were opening on some of the trees.
The alpine garden, naturally enough, usually has a few plants showing early. The colors on this succulent made me wonder how these survive the winter - I presume the red is like the red in leaves, left behind when the plant stops replenishing its chlorophyll. But does the body of the succulent freeze and then recover?
