Crossing the Wheel

In response to the Paul’s Patch challenge to look at the garden in winter’s depth, but to remember the grand difference of summer’s brilliance to keep us motivated and positive, here are my two views.  Sadly, I couldn’t find two from the exact same spot, but hopefully it works.  potager january  The potager at January’s end, during minus 17F.  And, the potager in mid-July.  Remember all the colors?potager 8-16 good  To enter the challenge, just post midwinter and midsummer photos, and use the tag “crossingthewheel”  Thank goodness the wheel is turning toward spring!

  1. Quite a difference. However, as a Mainer, I like winter and find your winter shot lovely and soothing.

      I do enjoy the “break” of winter, too, for it gives me time to read and contemplate, but these temperatures are difficult. It’s minus 15 with strong winds…not pleasant. I’ve had to add a heater to the garage to keep the braids on the allium rack and all the canned goods from freezing. First time in 25 years! I’ve had enough winter to satisfy me.

    It’s funny how the bleak winter light even extinguishes the cheery trim on your potting shed! But, your garden is so sweet and tidy it still looks pretty. Good bones!

  3. Both photos have their own beauty. I love this idea – might have to dog out some pics and take part too!

  4. I like the idea of comparisons- I’ll do one on my page too! I’m happy to be on the other side of the wheel also. January has drug on for months!!
