Sometimes in the middle of winter it is hard to remember how green it is in the summer. All the different shades of green. After staring at months of brown, I am ready for some green. Now, I know that some of you have been staring at months of white and you are ready for some greens of summer for a whole different reason! We were supposed to get some snow with this last storm. At first it was 5-8 inches! Then, 2-4 inches. Later – just ice, possible 1/2 inch! And finally, possible sleet changing to a cold rain. From 8 inches of snow to a cold rain in just a couple of days. While, I don’t want ice, a few inches of the white stuff would have been nice. I will continue to wait for summer as I edit my way through my backlog of garden photos.
Early morning sun on tomato plants.
Black-eyed susans popping up where ever they feel like!
Fennel blossoms going to seed.
Purple coneflowers that self-sowed themselves a little too close to the woods and now they must stretch for a little bit of sunlight.
