German Winter Thyme.
Tucked into a few spots of the garden.
I love the upright sprigs of this flavorful herb.
I’m going to mulch these with a pile of insulating snow;
rated down to Zone 5, hoping I can cheat the cold.
Even Jimmy is tired of Winter.
He misses his naps in the sunshine and his pasture of green grass.
Blanket of white snow covering the greenhouse and garden.
Rudbeckia gone to seed, gives texture to the Winter garden.
“Below normal temperatures”
I’ve tired of those words from the nightly weather reports.
I wonder how my Perennials will do with this year of extremes?
Quiet Winter morning in the garden.
The hustle of Christmas behind me, a walk around the garden was the perfect way to start the day.
It has all ready been a long, cold, snowy Fall!
What will Winter bring?
As the seed catalogs come in the mail, I began to garden plan on paper, though It will be months yet before a seed is planted in the greenhouse.
January brings a long awaited special moment for this gardener.
Watch for our garden in the Early Spring issue of Country Gardens magazine.
Pick up a copy and let me know what you think!
A little wreath.
Twisted vines from the garden.
A sprig of Juniper.
A simple bow.
Rural practicality in practice.
When it warms up this week, I have a few garden chores to take care of.
