Snow and water on January 4, 2016

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.

The second of February  2016 and it looks like spring. Almost

Surely, this isn’t the end of snow season.  Alas, no photo of 3-1-16.

January 12, 2017

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.

January 31, 2017

By the end of January 2017, almost the First of February,  there was more snow – and wet.

February 28, 2017

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!

February 12, 2019

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.

March 1, 2019

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.

March 4, 2019

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.

    Fun to see how your garden looks through the years. You have certainly done a lot of work in your garden in those years. It looks good even in winter. This winter has been a doozy. We are expecting snow again tonight. UGH…. So ready for spring.

    I love before and after photos! We are still buried with snow in southern Wisconsin but warming temps are supposedly coming this weekend. I am definitely ready for spring.

    Lisa – We have done a lot, but this morning we were making up a list of ‘problems’ that will need more work. We also are expecting more snow. GRRRRRR
    Linda – In spite of all the snow we had some warm days, but it will be back to 10 tonight. BRRRRRR
