Indoor Azaleas are ready for the party.
Was planning to participate in Wordless Wednesday as I've been in quite the curmudgeon mood these past days. Seemed like a fine idea ~ blog without words and nobody knows I'm cranky!
Plum Bonsai is hoping to steal the show
But, then I woke to the muffled sounds of everything. Which could only mean one thing. The snows I've been hoping for have finally arrived!
A soft blanket of white covers the garden, muffling the sounds of passers by. I smile out the window at fat flakes gently falling and my mood is exponentially brighter.
You see... I needed snow and lots of it.
This New Year's Eve is a full moon AND a blue moon.
In honor of this very Blue Moon, I was planning a moonlight snowshoe party ~ even though we had no fluffy powder to play in!
KC's Garden Bumble Bee shivers beneath the freshly fallen snow.
I should have known grand things would happen when I met up with KC yesterday. Seems the weather delights in foiling our plans and this day was no exception.
Karma? Kismet? Call it what you will. All we had to do was schedule a good weather day lunch in order for Mother Nature to send me the snowstorm we so despereately needed!
I white knuckled it down that icy canyon anyway because this mission could be delayed no longer. I was intent on delivering her over-achieving and nearly done blooming because now it's after Christmas Amaryllis. Which she seemed to like, in spite of the fact it was half dead. :(
In exchange, Ms. Photographer Extraordinaire gifted me with this photo of Bad Dog and I, snowshoeing Iron Canyon:
Me and Bad Dog!
A Happy New Gardening Year!
