Snowballs in the Rain on Earth Day

2012-04-22T11:41:21+00:00

Happy Earth Day.  It's a day to celebrate the Earth and all that she gives us, like this gentle, soaking rain we so need here in the magical Mid-Atlantic.  Everything is so green! The trees are smiling. I showed an earlier photo of the Chinese Snowballs, Viburnum macrocephalum, in their green stage, before they whitened up.  Here they are in full, glorious bloom, and the rain enhances the effect.  [...]

A Way to Celebrate the Season of Peace

2011-12-15T10:19:46+00:00

Here is a wonderful video of the murmuration, or gathering, of starlings, captured in Ireland.  When you need a minute in this Season of Crazy to just stop, stop...sit and watch this video.  It is beautifully calming.

Merry Christmas from Woodland Cottage

2010-12-24T00:29:07+00:00

Wishing you love, peace and joy as we slow down to celebrate the holiday season.  The garden is still and peaceful now--sometimes windy and cloudy, sometimes sunny and still, and sometimes there is snow--and most always cold at this time of year.  But underneath the ground, things are already stirring as the sun swings around, toward the longer days I love. All the best and thank you for reading.
