I look out my window and the garden seems pretty bare - happily snoozing, tucked under a blanket of snow. (That blanket is supposed to turn into a very thick down comforter if the weather forecast is right and The Big Blizzard comes to visit my garden).
I get the Tornado tucked in for a nap and head outside.
Aha! There is a bit o'green out there! Thank the Lord for evergreens!
I do like getting up in the snowy mornings and seeing what visitors tried to sneak through overnight. I feel like I'm one-upping the deer, cats, rabbits, gophers, dufflepuds, unicorns, etc. etc.
"Haha! You think you're so invisible- you wait until cover of darkness to slink over to see what's in the all-you-can-eat garden buffet! Nothing but TWIGS for you!"
Course, they get me back when the snow melts & the green buffet is back in full swing.
I couldn't find any icicles, but loved this bit of ice creeping along my edging stones.
Lavender and catmint - they were so pretty and silvery gray!
cheap plant markers just waiting to get pounded with a REAL. BIG. snowball in the predicted blizzard. Heh, heh. :-)
Not the best photo, as you can't see all of the garden. But the first thing I want to do is save up some cash and buy some TREES. I hate that our house feels like it was dropped out of the sky into a field. Whenever we get neighbors, I don't want to feel like I am on display when I'm out in my garden.
Other than that, I need to think of something else to plant as a focal point - possibly an evergreen - and figure out something to cover up that sewer cap. I'm thinking about braving the hypertufa world for that, but we'll see. Oh, and getting some trellising for up against the house so I can grow upwards.
I was outside all of 10 minutes when I heard the Professor start crying for his pureed peas. Mmmm.
Thanks to the Patient Gardener for letting me join in the end of the month review! It was wonderful to have an excuse to get outside and putter around (er... freeze) in my garden!
