ice cream cones & snow

Poor "ice cream cone pots", covered in snow. The grass , the helichrysum and vinca may still be alive, but not for much longer. I was tempted to pot up everything, but there just is a limit to the room I have for more pots in the house.

You may laugh, but here in zone 8B, I'll be making similar decisions on what I stuff inside my house, before I let others go. In Austin our winter doesn't get as cold as yours, but we still go below freezing - that line of demarcation for so many favorite plants. The grasses look beautiful in the snow-pots.

Kati, I hope you're doing okay - the superman photos were adorable. Unlike superman, we're not able save everything and every one - but we'd like to, wouldn't we?

Annie, thanks for caring: I'm fine. I have friends who have been very good to me since Molly died. I just loved the magical quality of my friend D.'s story, though!
As for the grasses, etc., I'm still dithering...I may bring them in yet and just find another spot indoors ;)

maybe that is what winter is for, a time to rethink and revise ideas and of course, to get new ideas from the catalogues. I used to rely on daydreaming over catalogues as my only means of gardening vicariously at one point in my life, when i didn't have a garden. thank god for the catalogues.

Wow, you got a lot of snow, Kati! We have had a few small snowfalls, but it all melts a couple of hours later. I got my garlic planted on Sunday. I was thrilled to get that done before the snow REALLY came.

good for you, Randa. I have to confess, even though we had a couple of lovely sunny days there, I still have not planted my garlic, sigh! Our snow didn't last very long either, a couple of days. It's raining now.
