The winter garden in Michigan is pitiful
Tho there are signs of life, if you are so inclined to look for it.
Thyme, planted several years ago, can be found fresh and green, even in the worst that Michigan dishes out. Just brush the snow away, and voila!
Oh how we Michiganders crave something green in winter.
The slow growing evergreen pictured here, will do just fine in this pot for several years.
Once it outgrows the pot, we will plant it along the property line with some others we have as a west wind break.
I like to keep my grasses un-cut for the winter. They offer seeds and shelter for the birds, and besides that...
by the time October rolls around, I have had just about enough of the garden and have proven to be too lazy to chop them down.
See that itty bitty patch of snow in this photo?
By this time tomorrow we will have several inches with near blizzard conditions predicted.
Last week at this time it was 60 degrees.
Michigan is a tease.
