With a Light Dusting
While AppleJack, Miss Callie Mae and me were sleeping last night, it snowed! Well sorta, remember snow in Music City is a relative term. This is the helleborus (Lenten Rose) dusted with snow. Such a hardy plant, blooming with the cold temps.
Looks like Mother Nature has given Miss Lenten Rose a dusting of confectioners sugar.
The faithful, bright yellow daffodils can also withstand the cold temps. These beautiful flowers greet me each evening. Enough to make this gardeners heart smile.
Last weekend, I made my first of many trips to the gardening center to purchase mulch, rose spray and fertilizer. Left over leaves were raked, perennial beds were cleaned, mulch applied, roses sprayed and this weekend snow. Gardening is challenging, Mother Nature has her own ways. Gardening keeps me humble.
Since the winter temps have returned, there is a huge pot of vegetable soup simmering on the stove. There are bow ties, stars and HST's to be sewn, samplers to be stitched and rugs to be hooked. And needlework shop owners are shopping at the TNNA Market. New designs, linens, fibers and accessories will be available next weekend!
