Winter Garden

Mom's visiting for a week from Massachusetts. We decided to see what the Brooktrails Community Garden looked like on a wintry day in November.

We went early enough that the sun was still on the plots, and late enough that the deep chill of the morning was fading away.

We found a sunbeam and sat together, enjoying the calm. There were sparrows and quail fluttering and peeping about. It was lovely.

She looked around and said she could tell it was a wonderful garden during the summer. I told her it took another gardener to appreciate it in November. "Well, I can see the potential." That's one of the things I like about gardens too, the potential.
