This is what is left of a rose mallow flower. I peeled back the outer layer to see what was left of the flower inside. I’m afraid it won’t open and the plant will be history this weekend when it warms up and I start doing a little yard repair. The mallow usually dies back and then new plants appear in the fall. I will have to look at the rest of the cold damaged plants for a few weeks before they can be pruned or (worse case) removed. But it’s really just a little  inconvenience in the greater scheme of things. I did take this mid-day as it had warmed up.

A knot that was protuding from a wooden fence. Just cropped, converted to black & white and added a chocolate layer.

Happy & Healthy New Year to Everyone!

The peanut.  It is a very rainy day here in sunshine state. Ran outside for a few minutes when there was a break in the downpours. After the rain we will be getting very cold here; our first freeze of the season on the way.  The Hoppin’ John is about ready to sample and the Rose Bowl Parade is on the television amazing us always. Football later and hopefully get Lightroom loaded.  The DH got an excellent price on it on Black Friday so I was also able to spring for the Topaz bundle. Excellent Christmas, though he was complaining to some friends that he wanted to get me jewelry but I just wanted computer junk.
