Remembering this "Busy Bee" from last summer!


I thought I would post some summery photos from my Shady Summer Garden of August, 2008, so we can all remember what Summer used to look like. More storms are on their way...yuck!

Silly Pink Polka Dot plant!


This little plant looks like it was accidentally splashed with pink paint. It is good for a laugh.

This plant seems to be looking out the window at the snowstorm!


A cute little plant I bought a few weeks ago, and it is doing quite nicely near the window (and not in the snow covered garden outside) brrr!

We can pretend this pretty flower is in the snow covered garden...brrr!

Another foot of snow!!

The garden is buried under there somewhere...I can't take it anymore, so I am going to show some photos of my indoor garden. An indoor garden? Well, my plants and some flowers I bought.

Bottle of ice???

Can't figure out why the ice on this shrub looks like a bottle!! Can you see it?

Icey shrub

I traipsed through the snow and ice to get this photo of an evergreen shrub in my yard....brrrr!!

Mr. Cardinal having lunch!


This photo is slightly blurry, but this shot was taken through a window and the birds weren't cooperating, they were busy eating not posing for pictures.

Mum in Soapsuds!

Two weeks ago I bought a bouquet of mums, and they are still blooming. I was at the sink trimming the stems and this little flower fell into the sink and landed on the edge of a glass filled with soapsuds....do you think it's as interesting a picture as I do??

A surprise blossom!

I am so desperate to see flowers on my blog in the middle of this cold dreary winter, so here is a photo of my small house plant named "pink polka dot plant". When I was watering it today I noticed the purple blossom...what a surprise that was, I didn't even know this plant ever had blossoms!

New Year's Eve Snowstorm!

The only thing that looks alive in the garden is Beth's tree! I tried to snap a picture of a Cardinal sitting in the branches, but it flew away.

The Sun After the Storm!


Can you find the little squirrel enjoying the sun after the snowstorm???

Cardinal


My favorite...the Cardinal, came to the feeder during the heavy snowstorm.


We kept the bird feeders full during the storm, and were rewarded by watching all the birds come to the feeders.


Can you see a rabbit in there???

Mysterious footprints!


Maybe it's a rabbit. I'll have to make my husband stand watch with a camera to snap a photo of the little critter! LOL!

BURIED UNDER THE SNOW!


The garden is somewhere under that snow ... and I think a little creature is living under Beth's tree, there are footprints all around it!
