Spring is on the Way

 I'm still sorting through hundreds of Sugaring Off photos so I thought I would show you what's going on in my gardens right now.  Teddy and I took a walk down to the lower gardens, the first time we could get down there since before Christmas.  The ponds are still frozen.

 Teddy suspects the bad kitties have come out of hibernation.


 Though there are not too many signs of Spring, if you look closely you can find buds.

 A frozen millstone.

 The hellebores put out new growth but it is now frozen.

 There are fishsicles in there somewhere.

 A frosty seat.

 Frozen pachysandra.

  Tilted witch....sounds like a good name for a bar.

 The winter blues.  Soon this will all be green.

 Teddy has seen enough and heads back to the mother ship.

Perennial burial ground.  I planted this entire area with perennials last year and none of them did much of anything. Will they come back this year, that is the question.
The forests frozen ferns.  A little alliteration for your day
If you look closely you will spy the daffodils.  Sugar shack photos will be up for tomorrow!


Yeah, I'd go for a drink at the Tilted Witch!

I agree, the Tilted Witch is a great name for a bar and to have a cold brew.

I love these pictures. Here Spring is very much like winter which is very much like a very late autumn. Very grey, very gloomy.

Teddy is looking very well groomed and handsome. Before you know it everything will be in full bloom.
No bad kitties yet, Teddy. Loved the frozen ponds. I'm headed to the Tilted Witch to raise a pint for St. Patrick's Day. Please join me.

I can see, in my mind, a sign by a British pub saying the Tilted Witch :-) That would be just perfect :-)

Perennials can look like they are going to die the entire first summer and then explode in growth the next. Sometimes a tough winter can be just what they need.

Those ponds do look deep frozen, I hope that at least a few goldfish still lives!

Have a great day!
