Winter arrived. Oops, no, false alarm. :)
I woke up to a raging blizzard. Was all ready to hunker down for this long, dark season. And, then, the next morning I woke to more sunshine & happiness. Which prompted one last walk in the garden.
|Kate tracks & Cat tracks.|
As if to say: Why? Why can't we move to California? I've heard it's toasty warm out there!
|Buddy, our senior citizen: He's been bitching at me for 17 years.|
|Note the NEW FLOWER BUD in lower left corner.|
Scabiosa Pincushion Flowers have shrugged off a month of freezing temperatures and 4 snowstorms.* Still gracing us with flowers and buds!
Other parts of the garden are not fairing as well. Purple Coneflowers are not so purple any more.
Helianthus has seen better days....
|Perennial succulent: Hen & Chicks.|
A wee baby Hen missing her chicks. (They're under the snow.)
Plus the scraggly remnants of the Heavenly Blue Morning Glories ~ bruised, battered, torn and tattered ~ by early winter's gale force winds.
