Thoughts and Digressions of a Public and Private Gardener
Ha! Happy New Year.
Happy to you as well!
Michael, your boxwoods' birthing looks like eggs are cracking open...a good sign for the New Year, I hope, for all!
I agree, Faisal. It is if the year is molting filled with the promise of renewal.
PS, I love your blog's new look!
Glad you like it Faisal. I still have some fine tuning adjustments to make. Happy New Year.
Thanks for the feel good factor and inspiration from your blog. Happy New Year.
You're welcome. Thanks for commenting!
I never thought of it that way, even though the few times it has snowed my 21 years in Abq, it did look like the plants are emerging from something. But your's in a perfect egg-shaped form is even more amazing. My pair of potted boxwoods had a few bits of snow on them at dawn, so not the same effect...
I have removed the snow from my boxwoods many times. It never cracked in half like this before. We had 2 snows back-to-back. The first produced a hard crust and the second was fluffier and created the perfect egg storm. Have a Happy 2013!
So that's how it happens. I never would have guessed. Happy 2013 to you as well.
I should put a must be over 18 warning on this post. Happy New Year to you, Les. I will be anxious to see what 2013 brings in your new position.
I'm really wanting a boxwood garden!
All you have to do is plant it!! 2013 is the perfect year for a project like that!!
How appropriate at the birth of a new year, Michael! What could be better than a bunch of hatching boxwoods to ring in the new? Wishing you many new garden paths to explore in 2013! Cheers!~ Joe
Did any of your boxwoods hatch this past storm?? Happy New Year, Joe.
That's a little creepy, Michael. Have you alerted the military? Happy New Year to you. Dave
Yes, Dave, it is a little creepy. Sometimes, at night, they are missing but always return the next morning. The authorities would think I am crazy if I alerted them. Not sure what to do. Happy New Year to you too!
