Here we are on the first day of 2020. What will the year bring? You can’t tell from the photo of the backyard garden because it is early and the sun isn’t there yet. The three inches of sleet, snow and ice came falling over the past couple of days, but now the sun is beginning to shine and at 10:30 am the temperature is 45 degrees. This is a good way to start the new year.
The first clump of river birches was planted in 2015. The second clump planted in 2017 is dawdling but it is coming along.
I don’t usually show a photo of the front of our house, but I wanted a full record of the beginning of this new decade. You can’t tell very well, but the English holly on the right is loaded with red holly berries, while the low evergreens are covered with snow.
We are sure this will be a year of change and promise. Happy New Year!
