Monday 47 | A Year of Mondays

This should be No. 48, but last week I was so busy that I didn’t even think about going out to the garden until it was dark…

This week is much the same, but I’ve made time since I haven’t been out there since the snow two weeks ago.  Shadow play, animal tracks and skeletons of summer shrubs are the norm now.  What delighted me today were the icicles on the bulkhead.  I didn’t expect that.  I refused to have the doors painted when the house was done this past summer since the patina is so beautiful.  I was right.

No. 47

  1. The beauty of temporary effects like the icicles! I am keener and keener on observing those kind of things, like the play of shadows, the shifting patterns of wind blown leaves and so on. Almost a relief that there are things that are not permanent. Love the patina too!

    You have hit the proverbial nail on the head…the shifting patterns of everything in a garden. They change daily.–s

  2. I enlarged the photo a bit so I could enjoy that gorgeous paint patina. Mmmm. I will miss this series when it concludes in a few weeks. Your focus on the subtle or small details has been both fun and illuminating. Will you be doing anything similar for 2011?

    I haven’t decided yet. I’m considering, gasp, doing something on plants. Glad you have followed along.-s
