Still frozen in time…
I discovered this “monthly meme” through another blog I follow, Carolee’s herbalblessingblog, and thought it looked like fun. It’s also a wonderful way to track the growth and bloom throughout the garden – in photos and narrative – on a monthly basis.
Thanks to Helen, The Patient Gardener, for dreaming up and hosting this monthly sharing. Visit her blog to find links to other marvelous, garden creations.
While many of the garden bloggers in England already had a fair amount of green and even some color in their gardens at the end of February, I thought there was absolutely no point in photographing the frozen ground under tufts of lingering snow, the untrimmed and messy remains of last year’s blooms, and burlap wrapped evergreens — the extent of what you would have seen in my garden at the end of February. Granted, we could at least see ground, which for those of us living in northern NY was quite a gift in February, but it was most decidedly not spring-looking.
But much to my dismay, March looks the same!! No, correction, worse. We have more snow on the ground.
