Snow day in Raleigh – how many inches can a Rosemary hold?

january-20-2009-snow-day-032

Perhaps Raleigh isn’t as newsworthy as Florida getting snow, but since they didn’t, we are the news. For y’all blanketed earlier this winter (and still coated) you might want to yawn and move on…but for us, he-he, we are having FUN.

On January 15, 2009, I participated in the Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day. What a difference 5 days makes.

  1. It’s really beautiful, isn’t it? The snow is so light and pretty.

    The snow is still falling here. That’s a huge cascading rosemary under the snow — beside the footbridge/stream in my cottage garden photo. The bench is on the other side of the path from the rosemary.

    There is something magical about fresh fallen snow on the garden. In my area, we can go a good number of years without ever seeing snow, which is fine with me, but it makes it that much more exciting when we do get a nice blanket of snow. Even better when you can watch it from your window and dont have to go out in it. Helen, you definately have a 4-season garden, the structure, lines and composition are unambiguous even covered in snow. And the little nome looks like he couldnt be happier!

  3. WOW, kk, thanks for the nice words. I really respect your opinion, so what you say means a lot to me.

    What beautiful pictures. That is the kind of snow that makes everything look so pretty. I love the picture of the Red Garden and on the Red gazing ball.It might not be very welcome in North Carolina but it sure is a pretty snow.

    The weather guys had everyone worked up here and told us we were going to have a snow event. All of the local school systems canceled classes today as it was only to get worse as the day progressed making getting kids home difficult. It did snow today, but it was light and airy and nothing stuck. All those kids home with parents missing work. At least they got to see the inauguration.

    Your garden is only enhanced by the snow. I hope you enjoy it and it will then melt away.

  7. I hear that! I heard of the school closings while in line at the grocery story at 5:30 the evening before. All I thought was, it better snow. And yippee, I did. Fun snow day.
