I did manage to take these few pictures of the garden and back alley grasses. Monday's blizzard has made walking around in the backyard fairly inaccessible due to a largish snow pile we have created in order to make a path to the garage. I am so glad for the plethora of snow as it is ensuring that the plants buried underneath are insulated well.

Some winter interest for those traversing our back alley.
|A view from our back steps. Every year the ninebark freezes with its leaves intact. To the left, you can just make out|
the tips of Liatris peaking out beside the Calamagrostis 'Overdam.'
|I should learn by now to put as close to the correct amount of postage on before I head to the post office. |
The sales clerk finished off the balance with one of those ugly digital stamps.
|The contents included two drawings and some paper souvenirs from our trip to Arizona.|
|I drew this while I was away – a zoomed in image from an oak tree photo off my iPhone.|
(Yes, I've broken down and joined Instagram. I just need to figure out how to use it...)
|I drew this image when I got home, again from a photo. The shrub I saw this on had juniper type|
foliage; however, I've never seen a juniper that has a blossom like this.
|Frozen Clematis koreana 'Brunette' outside.|
|A small, festive pot of zone 3 Gaultheria procumbens (Wintergreen) inside. I'll see|
if I can keep it humid enough to keep it going.
