On Sunday my nephew and I took a little foray out into the arctic tundra that the Garden has become. I cannot believe how deep the snow is! I does make me happy, though, as all those inches of snow are protecting every sleeping plant from the sub-zero temperatures we've been dealing with.
Come take a little stroll with us!
|Junior wanted to check out the Vegetable Garden. After a bit of a struggle actually walking out to it, we had to dig out the gate to get it open.|
|Or we could have walked around to the back where the weight of the snow had pulled the chicken wire fence down.|
|Really. The snow is deep.|
|Junior sort of dug out the snow "like a dog" as he walked from front to back of the Vegetable Garden.|
|The White Garden has never looked so white!|
|Took a little break and made a snow angel.|
|The end result was pretty perfect.|
|The Berry Patch is one big drift.|
|So. Much. Snow.|
|I'm hoping the currants don't get chewed up by rabbits. The more tender tops are about eye-high to a rabbit right now.|
|I'm glad I wrapped the boxwood!|
|Junior wasn't too concerned.|
|That slight mound to the left of the patio chair is the long border of boxwood, protected under the snow by the burlap.|
