Counting Shadows on the Wall....
The weather outside is frightful ... it is -20 Celsius, and this has been the high for the last week. Tuesday, though, is forecast to be -5 Celsius. I look outside at the drifts as tall as I am and the small flakes that continue to descend and look forward to Tuesday. I really don't know how someone of a 5'3" stature is supposed to pile all that snow from the walkways onto drifts already as tall as or taller than myself.
The cycad and palm (pictured below) are in winter hibernation, not really growing but green and lush, having halted the fertilizer regimen for the time being. How I love the green foliage! It is sure to brighten those snowy days of winter. I keep a little asparagus fern on the window sill in the kitchen; there for me to see every time I do dishes and cook.
