A brief thaw on Saturday presented an opportunity to dig out the covered beds and see if anything’s still alive. Nothing left but 4 hardy leeks. Time to hit the seed catalogs.

    The snow truly is beautiful and I would love to see it live, if briefly, then I want to come home to warmer climes. :) Lovely photography. Have fun with those seed catalogs.
