I had planned to post about winter's effect on my corner of Katy, most particularly the front gardens. It was an absolutely perfect day here, weatherwise, so much so that I decided a small celebration was in order when I was through working for the day. I popped a split of champers and sat out back to toast the beginning of spring. As I lazed in a chair, sipping and gazing, the sun slipped lower in the sky and dusk began to fall. I thought of my friends in cooler climes who are even more winter weary than I am and who can only dream of spring's awakening. So when I'd polished off the Pommery, I grabbed my camera and took some pictures through the garden gate for all of y'all whose gardens still slumber. I hope they will give you hope for your future gardens!
