Winter always puts me in a funk, but if I could see beyond it, there is a lot of beauty in the season. I happened to pull out my phone and take a few pictures on my afternoon walk. The temperature was a brisk 23 degrees. We have had a very dry fall. Usually we have a few inches of snow on the ground this time of year. This dusting was just from the overnight.
A very sunny Shade Garden
We also stopped by Rita's to take a peek at our vegetable garden but I just couldn't bring myself to take a picture. It's strange to think how land that is so fertile and verdant in the summer can be so barren and cold just a few short months later.
Rabbit and Deer Tracks - I wonder which came first
I wish I could learn to love winter. Maybe I need to solicit the advice of other northern gardeners to see how they cope in the gardening off-season.
