It is a balmy 19 degrees outside and poor Harry the Pug is finding it difficult to traverse the snow it is so deep.
It is snow as far as the eye can see with no relief in site. Surely Mother Nature is laughing hysterically as she watches me trapped inside with my nose pressed against the window. Viewing the current display out two of my windows, you can see 12″ of snow and long icicles dripping off our roof.The tallest of the icicles is over 24″ long.
This is the time we garden writers spend bundled up in our flannel and fleece in front of the computer; fantasizing about garden porn and dreaming of the time when we can get soil between our fingers and grass between our toes.
My grandmother always told me that winter was a time to be patient. She was obviously a gardener. Patience is a virtue certainly, but it is hard to come by with the weather I have experienced the last two weeks.
Tell me what you are doing this winter gardeners – to occupy your time while you are patiently awaiting spring. I can’t wait to hear from you!
