Creative Cue : Tip

The Tips of my daffodils poking through the sunflower seeds the birds threw on the ground--makes a nice mulch!

I was thinking also of Skunk Cabbage, one of the first plants to come alive in early spring--It generates enough heat in wetlands to melt the snow around it! It was also one of the favorite plants of my naturalist friend, Sandy. But I didn't have a good picture of my own. I actually found a set of antique salt and pepper shakers in the shape of skunk cabbages and gave them to her many years ago ... Alas, she's gone, and I assume the shakers are too.

I haven't seen any tips like that in my garden yet this year. Too much snow out there and cold weather doesn't help I guess. Thanks for sharing.

Good choice for the word tip. We are starting to see some of those tips, also. So good to know that spring is coming.
