Enjoy your garden in winter

February 20th, 2009

A new friend I met on Facebook, David Perry, writes a great blog about being in the garden and seeing. He wrote about going out and enjoying your garden even in Winter. He wrote, “There is so much more going on in the winter than you might expect. Why wait for spring. Grab your camera, go outside …take a closer look.” I was motivated to look around after a thaw and just as new snow was falling. The snow had melted back enough to expose some of my little rock sculpture garden. What a treat to enjoy. It reminded me that there actually is a garden waiting to burst forth.

It Snowed

It snowed!  It must be December.

Every Day

I was deciding whether it was worth the expense to rip up a cement door pad and mulch walkway and have a paver path to my studio put in instead.  It would make it easier to keep snow cleared off in winter but it seemed a little pricey.   My brother, a fabulous architect, pointed out that this was something I would see and use every day.  Today, this is what I saw.  I’m glad I have this pathway.  It brings me a little joy every day.

This is where I will write profound thoughts and observations.  It will probably remain empty most of the time.

By the way, there are 8 shopping days left till Christmas.

The neighborhood chair.

This is an inflatable chair that has been passed around from neighbor to neighbor in the middle of the night.  Lamps, side tables and wreaths would appear and disappear with each moving.
