Winter

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant."


















Winter in the garden can be beautiful albeit COLD. The shed is used only in gardening season so no need to keep a cleared path to it. Evergreens are a must for any season. The old bike gets planted with annuals for summer. My little garden on the east side of the house becomes a winter wonderland. Spring is my favourite time of the year, not winter. Soon the snow will melt and the tiny signs of life in the garden will start to emerge - I will also come back to life.

I found your blog listed as a new on at Blotanical. I'm also from Ontario and I can't wait for winter to be over and to be able to get out into the garden. Heck, right now I'd be pleased to even see the garden!

Oh-you are going to laugh cause I'm sure you are use to that much snow---but when I first saw your pics, I thought the first one was a tomb--lol. And then I didn't even know I was looking at a bicycle until I read your description. When you said clear a path to the shed--I almost spewed my Pepsi. It suddenly dawned on me that I was looking at your garden. It looks cold!! I'm hoping Spring comes your way soon and you thaw out. Welcome to blotanical.com It's so good to have you. Visit a few Southern gardens so you can see a path to the sheds!!
