The Colors of January

Filed under: Our gardens — Tags: — Judy @ 7:43 pm

What do you think of when you imagine winter in upstate New York? Lots of snow? Lots of white and gray? Yep, sounds about right . . . usually! But today was another beautiful day in the high 40’s with the snow melting rapidly. I took a walk to get some fresh air and see what interesting sights I could find out there. The garden beds are still snuggling under their leaf and bark mulches, but the lawn already looks greener to me after getting a good dose of that “poor man’s fertilizer.” I can see that the primroses, Jacob’s ladders, and other early bloomers show promise of things to come, but almost everything else is sleeping like it should. I really didn’t expect to see much as we still have about 2 more months of winter to get through, but look what I found! See? Winter here is not all gray!

  1. You have a great eye for finding the colors and textures in an environment that for some can be somewhat dreary. Thanks for sharing, makes me want to get out in the garden!
