With a bit of advanced planning, snow cover, and fortuitous timing, you may be able to catch sight of berry time in bluebird land.
This morning's light revealed an icy fog and frost-kissed plants. No outdoor blooms for the January 2014 Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, but interesting light and contrasts nonetheless.
Welcome to the first day of a new month, the day I share a Gardening Oops that I've witnessed or committed myself. While pondering possible subjects for this month's Gardening Oops – GOOPs for short – I kept running into garden blogger's block. No topic felt right. Nothing came to mind that worked as an interesting GOOPs subject … NOTHING. This writer's block reflected the general hum-drum feeling I've had of late about gardening. After a very busy May and June designing, planting, coaching, and gardening for clients and the extremely uncomfortable heat July brought to Connecticut, my energy for gardening and garden blogging came to a screeching stop. Like these hosta leaves, tired and burned from too much heat and sun, I was burned out on gardening.
