The picture below is actually from Jan. 12 of last year - aconites were blooming on my birthday! Since I has just come home the day before from have triple by-pass surgery (99,98, & 85% blockage) this was a wonderful gift to see and enjoy. Yesterday, I was able to get out twice for a very nice walk, and racked up over 13,000 steps in the process. That is the first time all winter that I was able to get 10,000 steps in. And when we came home I walked around the yard and noticed that the aconites were pushing up through the ground, their little yellow heads bowed yet but ready to lift up to the sunshine today if we get any. Have a great week end everyone. I know it will get cold again, but yesterday was such a wonderful gift, to be able to get out in fresh air and sunshine and 40+ degree weather.
