We had a very mild winter last year, so imagine my surprise discovering that my very long legged dog was afraid of the foot of snow that fell last night.

My Baptisia (false indigo) leaves after the rain. The blue flowers are now long gone, but it is interesting how the leaves turn a bluish gray.

My very old croton plant has bloomed for the second time. There’s something sea creature like about these tiny flowers.

When I moved here twenty years ago there were no trees in the garden. On a lovely warm autumn afternoon, I was hanging out on my patio admiring the trees I had planted as saplings.

I don’t like living in an urban heat island in the summer, but it is nice this time of year when we experience frost later than the outlying areas and the garden is still in bloom. Meanwhile, I had to go through seven revisions with the new and old wordpress editors to get this to look consistent with the other posts on this site. sigh.

These decidedly purple flowers are from a butterfly bush called Buzz Sky Blue. I find that most flowers called blue are actually purple. Hmmm.
