In and Around the Garden in 2011

January 1, 2011

Walking in and around my garden this morning, here’s what I noticed on the first day of 2011:

Splash . . . it’s raining again.

My hydrangea has buds.

Trick or treat . . . I still have a pumpkin on the front porch.

It’s no longer pitch-black at 5:00 p.m.  . . . actually, I noticed this a few nights ago.

Hate it when this happens . . . every shallot planted in one section of the garden has disappeared.

Surprise-surprise . . . there’s a dozen Alpacas in the neighbor’s field, next to my chicken pasture.

Well, blow me down . . . the one-trillion leaves in the perennial garden don’t have a clue how to drift onto the neighbor’s property.

For the first time in a long while . . .   I read these words on the my blackboard:

“What an opportunity . . . to confront change rather than simply react to it, to shape the rest of my life.”—author unknown

What have you noticed in the New Year?
