This is the view from my back window today. We are having another blizzard, and this one is the nastiest yet. I awoke several times in the night and heard rain hitting the windows, but it has turned back to snow.
The birds are seeking out every feeder I have. There’s a new window feeder they haven’t figured out yet, but they probably will today.
It’s not very often that I look out my window and see a world of white. It’s been a snowy winter so far on the Rhode Island coast. All that snow has made me think about garden designer Gordon Hayward and his talk called “The Winter Garden.” In it, he shows you how to keep your garden interesting through the winter months. He shares dazzling photographs of his own magnificent garden, so beautiful at every time of year.
So I look out on my own and I see bird feeders, a stone wall, and three Adirondack chairs, two of them upside down. These “design elements” constitute my winter interest, for now anyway. At least I have the birds.
