February 2004

After a bizarre warm dry January,
a bit of winter arrives at the eleventh hour.

Let's go for a white stroll.
We have to hurry before it all melts in a matter of hours.

The morning's first view from a window

Rush down the stairs, out the garage to the Herb Beds
at ground level

Through the gate and up iced Red Steps

to the upper patio

with Knot Garden on right

and pool on left.

Stroll to the white bench for a peek before going

through the house to the Red Oak bed

where it's already starting to melt,

to unveil Hellebores for Valentines Day
