Calm before the storm....

Well we've had snow

It's melted back down

Now they are promising a large storm to descend upon us with up to 12" of snow!
The big green mass will head north along the Western side of our state right for us!

The calm before the storm...
Early this morning

On a brighter note!
I captured this Cardinal on the bird feeder
early last week.  They are so pretty with the snow in the background!

As promised I'm showing you how the Paperwhites/Narcissus 
are doing!
I'm amazed at their growth rate and that I'm getting flowers already!  
There is a method of which I haven't tried of using a solution with alcohol that is supposed to help slow down their growth rate and keep them from getting so tall.  I will have to try it sometime.

Are you ready for Christmas?
I am and thrilled that our daughter, son and his wife will be here to join us! A real family Christmas at our house!

Till then..

Have yourself a

Hello and welcome to my garden site. I hope you enjoy my garden.


  1. Liz, the snow is so pretty! Just not in blizzards! We are supposed to get a touch of a wintry mix on the day AFTER! I think that's about as close as we'll get to a White Christmas. I wish you and your family a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas!!

  2. Stay safe and enjoy your White Christmas and Happy New Year.

  3. I hope you survive the storm safely. I love the red cardinal, what a splash of winter colour in he garden.

  4. Fun to see the contrast between the beautiful Fall and glistening snow. Love your planter!

  5. Hi Liz, I really like the looks of your blogs; both are very modern and professional looking. Have a great week, Liz!
