One gardener's observations, discoveries and random thoughts whilst simultaneously worshipping and dallying in a Cape Cod garden. "A garden," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, "is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coatskirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg and his whole body to irresistable destruction."

A Snow Day

As ultimately forecast, we got about 8 – 10 inches of snow here in Harwich, though with all the blowing and drifting, it’s hard to be certain. Luckily, we saw none of the power outages that were predicted at the storm’s onset. Some areas around the Cape reported more snow than us, but no matter the totals, schools and work were shut down for many. You can see the details here and here.

Here’s the garden, nestled deep in a blanket of white. In the right corner of the image, you can see one of our solar lights was displaced by plowing, but it appears that no harm was done.

We enjoyed a lazy day here, as we were both scheduled to be off, and as it turns out, we were able to get our new, much-shorter driveway plowed by a thoughtful neighbor. Although it was mostly a ‘movies and computer games’ day, I did also finally bake off some break-and-bake Christmas cookies to enjoy as the evening gathered about us.

  1. I love all the pics of snow you share. Thanks!

  2. Glad you enjoy them, CJ: Snow brings plenty of inconvenience to our lives, but it sure does make the world a prettier place for almost as long as it lasts!
