Season's Greetings

A winter storm has been making its way up from the Southern Plain States into southwestern and south central Ontario today. The forecast is 10- 15 cm ( about 6 inches) for most areas, but 15 to 25 cm (about 10 inches) is possible in my area since I am closer to the lake. I believe this will be the case, as I was out shoveling at lunch time today and there was already about 6 inches of snow on the ground. I will be out there again tomorrow to remove the rest of the snow off the cars and driveway, but for now I am back inside, warm and dry, after drinking a delicious hot chocolate made by my hubby who watched me plow my way inch by inch over an hour and a half ( he was stuck inside working on a weekend install for a customer - a computer thing).

A couple of photos so that you can see that there is a HO HO Whole lot of snow out there!



This will be my last post for the year. I am finding myself too busy to write new posts, or read them for that matter. 

My best wishes to all my readers for a wonderful holiday season, and I look forward to keeping in touch with you in the New Year!



P.S. It is Sunday morning and this is the tally for the snowfall: 30 cm or about 12 inches. Looks like it may be low - I will measure the snow accumulation in my backyard later today. Now I must go shovel snow again.

Highlights of 2013

2013 was a very productive gardening year for me. I planted about 100 perennials, shrubs and trees, and oddly it still doesn't look like it made a dent in my vision. But I am very happy with my endeavors and I hope I will be as driven in 2014.

This is a look back at my garden through the seasons.
