It's Not Easy Staying Green  
Weekend Photoblogging

It's Not Easy Staying Green
Originally uploaded by urtica.

Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is one of the few herbs around that manages to keep its leaves alive and green the whole winter. This is a biennial species, and the leaf in the photo above is from the first year's growth - a basal rosette of leaves clustered close to the ground. The plant it belongs to will flower, and then die, this coming spring.
