Back to White

The plants have been happy under the snow.   This is a nice clump of cardinal flower, Lobelia cardinalis.  We let as much of this red beauty grow here as we can.  The hummingbirds love it and so do we.

The Great Lobelia looks healthy too.  Some of these plants will have blue flowers and some will be white.

This foxglove growing at the base of one of Ed's walls should flower  this year .  It is something else to look for in the spring.

Today  the snow is back.  Once again everything is covered with white.  I went outside to take this.  Ed is working on clearing the paths and the driveway.

This picture shows the view out the front door of the house.  Fresh new snow covers the garden with white.  Not even the animals have made footprints yet.  I still enjoy the quiet beauty of a new pristine blanket of snow on the garden.
