Garden Bloggers' Muse Day - February 2011

Are you able to read more than one book at a time? Might you be able to peruse through this multi-themed post without getting confused?

Let's give it a try! You will be reading this February 2011 post.
The photos embedded herein are from February 2008. You might be interested in following the links to the two posts written for the photos at that time. Happy Muse Day! :-)

ebruary - the "in-between" month, where

These first few photos were taken Feb. 8, 2008.

verything here, in and under the ground hibernates,

reathing out and in, slowly, as the winter freeze

emains. . . everything resting . . .

ntil it is time.

These last few snowy photos were taken about a week later
in February, 2008.

ware of this,

esting Ourselves may be the balm necessary
as we prepare and

earn for the warmth, beauty and presence of Spring.

And these two photos were taken April 26, 2008.

I've had fun perusing the old photos!

Oh beautiful snow... I love the little sitting man, and I imagine a whole lot of effort went into him. Did you make him?

Shady Gardener said...

Yep, I made them both. ;-) Now I'll wait for weather warm enough to make another snow creation!

joey said...

Excellent post, Shady ... very creative. How did you make the snow sculptures? You should come and play ... we are expecting over a foot and maybe more!

Carolyn Gail said...

Wow, Shady, you outdid yourself on this one. Very creative and fun. Thanks for joining in on GBMD.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Joey, The weather and the snow were both "just right!" Ohmygoodness - we're getting quite a snowfall today. I imagine you are getting more, though. Happy Snow! :-)

Hi Carolyn, Thanks! Your meme is one I truly enjoy. It's a great way to watch the months and the gardening all over. :-)

Thanks, Tessa. :-) Happy Gardening to you, too!

Jan@Thanks for today. said...

Love your snow people and your photos, SG. Won't it be wonderful when those April blooms appear?! Especially the bleeding hearts. I just love them;-)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Jan, Thanks for your visit. :-) Perhaps this Spring is even more anticipated? And you're right. It will be wonderful!

What a show. You were really inspired by the muses, on more than one occasion.

Hi commonweeder, These are my favorite muses (at the moment)! ;-)
