A pause on spring



Usually around this time I'm either planting spring containers, or doing garden cleanups, or making plans for the upcoming season. Yes spring is here, but it's been paused.

Nothing can really be done about it, just wrench our hands and wait I guess.

This post features a favorite garden store, who's spring is also on pause in a different way than mine though

They had to close shop to the public.

Here's a look at some of what they were offering

Stay safe

Me and the Amaryllis



 My luck, this social distancing would happen now, just before spring.

Just when the snow was melting with the warmer weather, and Robbin sightings were 
occurring

( a sure sign that Spring is here )

Right when I was ready and  tiring of winter.



Well, I guess I'll just have to enjoy my Amaryllis 



Stay safe my friends

A Winter Garden


The winter garden is  unlike a Spring, Summer, or fall garden. Though there is greenery and color it's not alive......at least not anymore,and there's no need for dead heading

 The Winter Garden consist mostly of dead branches and twigs arranged in containers and pots with maybe some lights.

A garden that is to be mostly enjoyed from the indoors during inclement weather.

Evergreens, and branches are on call for this garden, take a look!

This we like!  




Magnolia leaves and grapevine balls wrapped in lights

Holiday Home Tour, the planning season.



The Holiday Season is over, this is what I like to call my planning season. A time to look not only to the next season, but a time to start planning for the season that we just got through.

I enjoyed my Holiday decorations this past year, but there's always room for improving, and that what season I'm in right now.

Here's a short tour of our home.

Happy New Year everyone, 
Enjoy the Season!



The front porch pots




The wreath on the garage wall was a sort of a experiment. I used the heavy wire ring that is used  to make evergreen wreaths. I just attached pine-cones, faux berries, a short length of white pine roping, and globe lights.





The fireplace mantle
Magnolia branches, faux evergreen garland, faux berries, and red LED berry lights.

Planning how to take this to the next level
