I promised pictures of my...what I call...garden window. We have "window seats" in our two front bedrooms of our house. One of the bedrooms is used for computer room/office. My computer sits right in front of the window. I like to change up the window for each season...this time flowering plants and sort of a Valentine theme... without the heart shaped things. I waited till the sun was away from the window and snapped a few pictures. They didn't turn out at all. Probably the first time I have nothing to show for my attempt at a posed picture of and arrangement of plants. So much for showing off. I'll have to give it a try tomorrow. As I sit here...it looks pretty nice with pictures in gold frames of my mom and grandma along with primrose plants, ivy in a pot trailing down, some silk snowdrops etc. Oh, well. It wasn't meant to be.
I read a blog yesterday where the author of the post was complaining about people writing so much about the weather. She felt that weather is weather...we all have it in one form or another. I suppose I could agree, but when you post most everyday the weather does come up. I like to look back and see what the weather was a year ago...or five years ago at this same date. I think that gardeners have a unique relationship with nature...and weather is a big part of nature.Our minds are always one step ahead of Mother Nature when it comes to weather. When it is snowing...we are lamenting over it and wish it were rain. When the rains come, we wish for drier weather...so we can be outside. When it's dry...we want moisture. It's something that we obsess about, wonder about, worry about, cheer about....no wonder we post about it. This winter has been a rough one.. so far. We worry about our blogger friends when we hear about a bad weather system heading their way. In spring...we will hear tales about tornados and floods and other disasters near people we care about. So, to each his own. I never tire of reading about the weather on blogs...just like I never tire of seeing all the decorating, cooking, book reviews, and just down to earth everyday living...that sometimes includes the weather.
