Red chard

I went out into the main gardens today just to see what’s going on. It had been snowcovered until our huge thaw last weekend, and I hadn’t been out there for a while. You know, you just gotta take your hat off to certain plants’ will to live: despite snow and sleet, despite a low temperature of 11*F, despite winds and lack of cover, this is what I saw today. Kinda neat, huh?
