Blurring the Lines

At our house we like to blur the lines between inside and outside as much as possible. No we don’t have terra ferma for floors … yet. Did I just say that. Let’s just keep that between us. Mr. G need not know.

Today is one of those rare days in Indiana where it is sunny and even though it is 34 degrees, to me it feels like 70 and I just have to be outside! So, I spent the day “decorating” outside. Through the long winter months I love to look outside my window and see pretty things!

I’ve been on a scavenger hunt today to find things in the garden to add to the vignettes we will enjoy out our windows through the long Indiana winter…

Happy New Year from our Snow Globe

The snow just keeps coming!

So far this week we have had 12″ of snow and the way it is coming down today, it looks like we will accumulate 2 or 3 more. My roses and their companions look like they are in the middle of a snow globe.

Happy New Year from our snowy home to yours!

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Wo! It is cold and the snow just keeps coming–14″ or so and more coming tomorrow!

The door to the Potting Shed was frozen and I needed Mr. G to get it open for me so we could water the plants!

The sun was shining so pretty on the snow today. Come on in for a visit…

Now I have to get back to “winter” cleaning … time to undecorate! And, get ready for spring … coming in 79 days.

Winter Garden: First Snow

Today we have our first snow and this morning it looks fresh and beautiful and boy is it cold… windchill factor is 7 degrees! Burrrrrr…. wasn’t it in the 50s a couple of days ago?

Here’s my view today in and around The Potting Shed

As you know I spend a lot of time dreaming of spring but for today, I am enjoying the pretty snow.

By the way… it is only 88 days until spring! If you want to see how the garden looks in the spring, check out these posts…
