We live in Wisconsin. It's January. Usually it's cold and dreary, and there is sand, salt, and grit everywhere. At this time of year, in my neck of the woods, it's hard to believe spring will ever come. The lush beauty of July in Wisconsin is a faded memory. In the height of summer, my husband and I will take what we call, "garden walks". When we walk through the garden on a summer night we'll get a view like this.
Well, today was my day to tromp through the snow and find the beauty of our winter garden. And, lo and behold, it's there! Here are some photos from my January garden walk. The sun is shining and the icicles are dripping. We're going to be in the 30s today and it's beautiful!
Pretty as it is in January, I still like July the best!
