Easygardener spurred this post on because she said she was snow deprived .. now mind you we don't have a lot right now, but I thought it might provide some distraction to those that have to go without the white stuff .. I even caught the snow plough circling our cul du sac .. we have two in our neighborhood and sadly enough it has provided entertainment to 'rednecks" with Skidoos .. but I think the By-Law officer finally caught up with those, shall I say idiots, before I choose juicier nicknames ?
Could these possibly be BUDS on my Maple tree ? .. click on the picture to enlarge and tell me what you think ??
This messy tangle of vines is actually my Dutchman's Pipe .. and it is a beauty when it leafs out. I'm glad I was patient with it because it is a definite vertical plus in the garden !
Lastly you might be able to recognize Dave .. stoically with pipe in hand .. muttering under his breath when ever I stick my head out doors to check on him .. poor love ! ^..^
