A few days this month have been average, but nearly every other day has been warmer. From what the forecast shows, early January looks about the same and I guess that’s great if you’re digging foundations and pouring concrete this winter, but I guess it’s also great for fall snowdrops. Surely one of those should make this gardener happy.
I guess foundations and snowdrops both make people happy, but I would like to take a moment and note that none of the construction crews have commented on the wonder of December blooming flowers. Maybe they’re too distracted by the other wonders of the “winter” garden.
Other than a group of snowdrops which looks remarkably similar to other groups of snowdrops, the rest of the garden is significantly less inspiring.
I suspect the bulk of the foundation work will be finished today. Then it sits for a week curing before even more building goes on top. I suspect it will take a while before I’m comfortable with this new massiveness rising in the garden but maybe more closet space is really what’s been missing from my life. All this time I thought it was more snowdrops, so silly me.
Who am I kidding? We are entering Temple Nursery snowdrop catalog season and I can absolutely guarantee that I will again try to fill that void in my life with new snowdrops. I already called the bank to make sure our line of credit will be available in time.
Have a great week!
