Our first "big" snow of 3.5 inches--that's the official total taken by my finger on the driveway as I cleared it off. My finger is also adept at planting seeds, pointing out what my suburban neighbors do WRONG in their landscapes, and grooming myself in the privacy of darkness.

Below you will find a newly discovered species of lawn art called humpbackii flamingois 'mohawk.' Then I enjoy what snow does--how it highlights the lines and shapes that one tends to overlook in the thrush of summer plants. I do enjoy winter, especially because I get to string up Christmas lights and illuminate the rabbit who has apparently been eating my two dianthus. Do they eat dianthus? Anyway, it's camped out under the deck and I suppose we'll be friends.
