bombogenesis

Glad I've been to have escaped the snow and extreme freezing conditions.... and yet.... the low 20s and high teens that we've been experiencing as lows have been rough enough...

Some beauty in the garden as a result of the cold, though...

Frost flowers!


 Winter seedpods are always attractive.... Round-headed Bush Clover (Lespedeza capitata) above and bluestem below.

 Camellia before the deepfreeze... they're brown now...

 Loquat tree... flower before the freeze... also brown now...

 Cyclamon and hellebore, neither are bothered by the cold...

Mustard greens after the deep freeze... doesn't look real appetizing now...

 Greens before the freeze.... Also.... pickup full of horse poop.

Poop.... each hump represents a truckload brought in.... I'm finding that dumping it out in piles allows it to loosen the sand, and importantly to kill the japanese honeysuckle and muscadine grape vines... those vines can be problematic when working on a new section of vegetable garden.

here's a section of the vegetable garden... maybe a quarter of  the whole....

another picture of frostflower... richardia.

Fuse box full of wasps....




seeing a lot of songbird activity with the new rising temps....
