The idea of taking photos of the view from my ‘office’, the only room in the house that gives a full view of the backyard garden, is intended as a record of the vagaries of the weather. My dates sometimes are a bit off, but this is the first photo taken in 2016. This is the beginning of the first full year in our Greenfield house.
Surely, this isn’t the end of snow season. Alas, no photo of 3-1-16.
I said my dates wouldn’t be exact. This is the first January photo in 2017. Snowy and wet but you can see the planting beds have gotten larger, The first plantings went in in June 2015, and continued through 2016.
By the end of January 2017, almost the First of February, there was more snow – and wet.
Almost March 2017, and the snow is nearly gone, leaving wet spots. The planting beds are nearly complete.
I certainly didn’t get started taking photos early in 2018. This is a view from the ground because the office window was frozen shut.
So much for recording February in 2018!
I knew I was falling down on my recordkeeping. This is the first view from the office in 2019. The window was still frozen.
To make up for missed opportunities in January and February, and after several February snowfalls, here is the backyard from the ground.
And here is the view from the office window. We have had bitter cold weather, with high winds last week, but today the sun is shining, and the snow is melting.
Lest I begin to think the ever brighter sun means that spring is almost here, I woke this morning to the results of a heavy wet snowfall all night.
I hope the arrival of April 1 will bring no foolish scenes.
