in the forecast

Snow. One hundred percent chance of it tomorrow. I think I’ll just take a nap and wait for the end of world, which I understand will occur in three days.

I found a few of Cindy’s pictures on a disk, pictures taken in 2008, which I thought I would share now, you know, just in case …..


leaving hanging baskets over the winter, full of dead plants, was not my idea.

The rest of these were taken at DBG and are anything but seasonal. I wanted a bunch of pictures of the O’Fallon Perennial Walk, knowing full well that every time I went to DBG it made me feel like going home and rototilling the whole garden.

If only I could plant my pots like these are planted.

    Loved the non seasonal photos, good to spread a little summer sun around. I see the big metal bug sculptures made an appearance at the Denver BG too (we saw them at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix). Oh and snow…it snowed here this morning! Nothing actually stuck but big fat flakes were falling from the sky. That’s enough for me.

      Snow is really overrated as a weather feature. I thought I’d post a snowy picture just to be agreeably seasonal. There was just a dusting here this morning, which is enough for me too.
      I’m surprised there weren’t more bug pictures, since Cindy loved bugs so much. And spiders. The larger, the better.

    That beautiful snow scene makes we want for a white Christmas. (Is that your garden?) But only for a couple of days. Love the DEBG photos. It is a lovely garden. Have you been to Red Butte in Salt Lake. Another outstanding western garden.

      That picture was taken from our back door, probably around Christmas 2008. The lights are gone now; squirrels chewed through half a dozen strings before I decided it was a waste of time. I kept repairing them, the squirrels would chew through the wires the next day.
      Haven’t been to Red Butte yet.
      Snow is really overrated. The first 45 years I lived here it would snow, then the snow would disappear soon after. Last four winters snow was on the ground for three months. It’s like having a house guest who won’t leave. The dog liked it, though.
