January

January

Another dreary day in January; overcast, 34 degrees and muddy underfoot. I was contemplating this morning as I was squishing back to the house in the near dawn after feeding the horses and chickens..they’re sleeping. All the barren trees, the pruned back shrubs, the wilted fronds of the summer’s hostas, lillies, irises, mums and bee balms. This is their night as they rest in their roots and branches, snuggling in under a blanket of leaf mulch and soft soil, enjoying a well deserved rest after an energetic summer during which we enjoyed their fruits, flowers and fragrances.  Sleep well friends, we’ll see you in the morning!

BTW, there is no better time to look at country property than in the winter. No bugs, no brambles and you can see through the woods. Call me for an update on new listings!
