Again…..

It’s snowing…… again…..ugh….I miss my garden.

20140215-133331.jpgI haven’t seen the lion in ages.

20140215-134051.jpgMaybe it’s just that I miss the intensity of the color and my fish.

20140215-134258.jpgI hope they’re OK down there under all that snow and ice.

I’ve posted some of these before, but I figure everyone enjoys a change of pace now and then.

Garden

It’s that time of year when I should be assessing my garden…what plants grew well, which should be moved, what combinations are worth repeating, which should never be, where to plant the tomatoes next year, what seeds to buy, do I need more dafs, more muscari……on and on. But really I’d rather sit in the sun and try and figure out how to photograph fish.

I find I plant more leaves and fewer flowers every year.

These really are the best weather days, autumn in upstate New York the apples and pumpkins are in the stands and the early trees are just starting to change.
