This is a heuchera, also known as coral flower or coral bells. It's one of the few plants that look like anything at this time of year in our garden. Everything else out there is practically a dead brown stalk. I love the dark purple leaves of this plant and the fact that it's been able to hold its own against our recent frosts.
We have had some hard frosts, too. The water in the birdbath has been frozen solid and there's been ice on the sidewalks in the mornings. This morning it doesn't look quite that cold.
I slept until 8 a.m.! And I mean slept. I wasn't the least bit aware of the world between going to bed at 10 p.m. and waking up. It was fabulous. I wish I could sleep like that every night!
And now Olga and I are both back in bed, and I plan to stay here for as much of the weekend as possible. I'll get out and walk the dog and I might even take more pictures. But my main goal is to take it easy! I love the fact that we have no commitments until Monday. It's a great feeling.
My interviewing talks with the 8th Grade went well yesterday. Thank goodness that's over.
