Quotable Sunday 01/13/2013

Icy Day

Oh what icy and frosty days we are having here.  Worrying and wondering how our little babies are doing out in the cold.  They are all wrapped up in their blankies and we are leaving them to slumber the winter away. 

The first few seedlings are hanging out in the heated greenhouse, the only super warm place around!

Everything else is in the deep shade of a low winter sun and is covered with frost.  Looks like everything is bedazzled in shimmers, lace and fancy trim. 


So find your own little blankie, grab a warm cup of tea and lets wait a moment or two for the season to warm.  

The last snaps and greens from the farm, recycled carnations from Christmas and five little locally grown tulips from a fellow farmer friend.

 "Nature has undoubtedly mastered the art of winter gardening and even the most experienced gardener can learn from the unrestrained beauty around them."

  1. It is so interesting to see the different weather around the country. I am a suburban flower grower and floral designer in NC. Our area is considered zone 7B, but we still haven't gone much below 25 degrees. I so enjoy dropping by your blog, and I loved reading about your caterpillar tunnels in Growing for Market last year!

  2. Brr.. that looks really cold!
    Stay warm by the fire!!!
