I don't know what your little gem is. I thought you knew what it was and that it was something special. Guess "moi" needs to go back and take more photos as the little red sprout grows. Ha ha, you're going to end up being the plant photo journalist for everyone.

But I don't think the fuzzy yellow thing is related, do you?

It looks to me like a sycamore branch fell to the ground; the fuzzy ball is a seed pod and the red gizmos are leaf buds on the branch.

Ha ha. The red gizmos looked like they were growing right out of the ground next to the seeds to me. I guess Sage won't be able to take photos as the little red sprouts grow. I was all but rubbing my hands together wondering what kind of a bright red poisonous mushroom was growing up out of the ground next to that twig. Ces't la vie for the little gem and a photo op.

S you sleeper you. Look at those great plants. You took my breath away. I'm frothing at the mouth seeing so much skunk cabbage. It's so healthy looking.

I've seen squished pine cones that look like the flora (florum?) in your photo; perhaps it is a tiny, similar seed-delivery system. The red things look like new leaves sprouting on the end of an adjacent twig. Clearly, you shall have to go back and observe the progress as Spring helps it along.

nice photos Stoloniferous
is that the area you dug out by the rock?
looks very inviting

don't you just love it when the voice of the woods or "garden" speaks to you?
it draws your attention to a certain rock or log, and sways your hand
- just so.

maybe we could call this synergistic gardening?
