These are the stories of a gardener and her adventures in and sometimes out of her eclectic and eccentric garden in a suburb of Houston, Texas.
I believe I see a blue pyramid of Arizona cypress in there, and if you have one of those, it's all you need for winter happiness. Thanks for celebrating foliage with me.
Winter has been with us long enough Cindy~I know you agree! gail
I'm looking forward to an early spring - in Texas!
Pam, my Arizona cypress is one of my proudest achievements as a gardener. My plan is to eventually remove the pine and let 'Carolina Sapphire' have pride of place. Maybe I need to plant more of them :-)Gail, it has indeed. We should be past the worst of it in 4 weeks. Pat, I hope we can oblige! I'll do my best!
I clicked, not so bad. I guess all is relative. I am with you though, waiting on Spring.
I will be so glad to see green and blooming things again. Your yard really looks pretty good considering it's winter. My yard is pretty brown!
Well, as they say, it's all relative. I know you're not used to seeing dead brown things. You're more used to greenish-not-growing things in winter. Look on the bright side - maybe a few more bad bugs got killed.
GWGT/MT/Jean: I think what gets to me the most is the unevenness of it all. Shriveled and blackened foliage amidst so many healthy green plants is unsettling to my psyche. I'm such a delicate flower myself ... (the HG will kindly stop rolling on the floor or I'll dock her wages.)
It all looks green to me! Which is certainly better than the shriveled brown--or nothing at all--of my garden.
