"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived" Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854)

Plant Camp Monday's

 Fire and Ice

Sorry to be away from my blog for a few weeks.  I had a bit of a set back, oh the bumps in life.  But alls good and ready to share about my neck of the woods.

Had a wonderful Thanksgiving and decorating for Christmas.  Hopes for snow!

Planted a few bulbs today for spring flowers.   So not to late to get some out if you can work the soil. 

These photos I call Fire and Ice.  It got down to freezing and I had a ice cream container filled with water and left outside. Next day it was frozen, tipped over and ice cube fell out with a hollow center, perfect for a candle.  A couple of leaves fell in before it frozen and made a nice decoration.   These are so easy to make, you could add coloring and decorations for the holidays.  Last a long time if it stays cold.  I moved mine out of the sunshine to keep from melting.  Pretty in day and super cool at night. 

Seed catalogs will be coming in and I'm so excited about next seasons garden.   Its fun to plan during the winter months, cup of coffee , seed catalogs, sitting next to the wood stove and snow flying.  Makes winter not so bad.

Winter sowing will start in Jan.  So will be sharing about that a little later.

Happy Holidays and thanks for your visits
