Sixty Degrees, Six Months

All I did in my garden was subtract sixty degrees (F) and add six months to go from this....

..... to this:

Water, temperature, time.  Three simple elements.  Where else but in your garden can so much drama be created with so little effort?

  1. Your snow images of the garden are really beautiful, especially the one of the home. I liked your mosaic and 6 month idea. It does make a huge difference.

  2. High drama for sure. I like the new look of your blog.

  3. Nice pictures.
    Gosh, the snow down here on the Cape keeps turning to rain, (typical Cape Cod winter)and everything looks so bland.
    I've done some ice skating with the kids but we are really wishing the sledding was a bit more happening.
    Oh well!

  4. ALL you did! Could you stop adding snow please?

    BTW, I love the blog re-design. It looks great.I really like the font, what's it called?

  5. Thanks to all for enjoying some rainy summer / snowy winter with me!

    Debbie, the font is a Google API font called "Coming soon" and the titles are a font called "Rock salt" (appropriate, no?)

  6. I love the Christmas tree effect of the evergreens in your yard. There is indeed a world of difference between those mosaics.

  7. I love the lush images juxtaposed to the snow...it is amazing how much one place can change...again and again!

  8. Sweetbay and Cat, thanks! I did get a kick out of the extent of change in the same scenery.

  9. Beautiful photos, Laurrie; the snow really creates a lovely scene. But as lovely as the white vistas are, I'm ready for some dew-kissed greens like those in your first collage.

  10. Rose, "dew kissed greens" -- what a lovely phrase, and how you make me wish for them!

  11. Ooooo ... nice re-design. Love the photo montages. Sounds like we CT gardeners will have some more snow photos to add to our growing collection.

  12. Joene, thanks. I don't think I can take any more snow, but I'm trying to be cheerful.... it's coming anyway.
