Even though this winter has been harsh, I am grateful for it. Looking back, I see the beauty in seasonal change. Winter's bleakness brings forth renewal come spring. Looking at these photos in succession really help to balance the change and the need for the seasons. For without the winter, spring would never reveal such beauty and vibrant colour! It helps me cope with the upcoming forecasted 10cm snow fall we are expecting in the next few days. Ugh!
Yet, the few degrees milder weather today, makes me anxious to get my
garden plans ready for spring. In the autumn I planted several shades
of Crocus chrysanthus, or known as Snow Crocus
(early flowering variety). I can hardly wait to see how they'll bloom
in spring. Given this harsh winter, I hope they will fair alright.
Ok, start planning...what to do next spring....
