Why Is Gardening Getting To Me?

The answer is SNOW!  My garden is covered up, the snow blower and the shovel are my new garden tools!  I just love those grasses peeking out of the snow and my alley garden has been plowed but not totally covered up yet.

What happened to the color?  It looks like everything is in shades of gray and white.

The Rhodies have curled their leaves under the snow.

As you can see I did not cut down the Miscanthus Udine yet, I will be sorry!  Pennisetum always looks good in the snow and Panicum Northwind is the stalwart of the winter grasses.  Oops, my cabbages have had it and just about all of the holiday containers have been buried in snow.

Do you recognize the container in the header?

Rainbow Knockout

Too much of this already!  When I move inside, it is all about color, the poinsettias, the cyclamens, the tree, paperwhites and amaryllis.

Happy Indoor Gardening!
