Under The Cloak of Winter

“Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle…a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.  And the anticipation nurtures our dream.” – Barbara Winkler

  1. This morning I looked at my hyacinths in vase and thought about all the bulbs snug underground while I’m trying to coax some winter blossoms. I’m ready to welcome Spring, soonest.

  2. Something is coming up in our frozen backyard. Not sure what it is since I didn’t plant them, and don’t do bulbs myself, I’m looking forward to being surprised this spring! Bulbs are way cool. Lovely pic.

  3. I do so love coming by to visit, everything here is beautifully photographed, and so poetically written.

    Yesterday I dug up all the bulbs that I have thrown into my compost pile over the last few seasons, and transplanted them into terra cotta pots on my deck. This way, I can see them bloom, right in front of my windows.

    It is getting harder, and harder to find any 4 inch pots of anything. Nurseries, and garden centres are becoming a thing of the past around here. Unbelievable as it might sound.


  4. Beautiful Nancy. I have a few of these bulbs chillin’ in my frig right now. Yours will be in glorious bloom soon ~ just the thing to take the edge off winter. I should put mine in the frig earlier so I can pull them out earlier.
    btw, I finally posted my first snowfall entry. Took a long time, didn’t it?!!!
