Swirling away ...

The Herbstonne Rudbeckia is still in one piece after freezing rain .. high winds .. swirling snow .. amazing tough character .. I expect a great show this summer from it .. anything to hide the rest of the world from my garden is a winner for me ! : )

Those seedheads are sturdy! It's amazing how they can withstand freezing rain and winds.

I gather you are getting hit with a huge storm - freezing rain, snow etc.

Hunker down and keep on photographing from inside!

Hi Kate
Yup ! I just planted this one last year and I expect great things from it .. can almost be a tree in my thoughts , the way it hangs in there like a trooper.
Another big yup to the storm .. hubby is going to consider ripping up the snow blower soon .. I can NOT wait till Spring.
Your temps the other day were amazing .. I know that is COLD even out there ! haha
