I haven’t heard this sound in a long time. In the stillness of the landscape there is a crackling sound of branches as ice falls from them. Several storms have passed and at the present time we just endured our sixth snowfall of the season. It is time for another Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day and Foliage Follow-Up, and while not much is blooming this time of year, the garden is full of hope…well maybe. I know all of the cold climate folks are getting a bit stir crazy and have seen way too many snow photos…but prepare yourself...there are more in the near future. I am also celebrating A Guide to Northeastern Gardening's Fourth Anniversary on the 17th. so I included some macros taken with the new lens. Come take a look at the garden in winter.
