Jewels in a Winter Garden
It is indeed strange to travel north to Nova Scotia for the winter holidays and find it a balmy 70 degrees on sunny Christmas day. The seasons are changing, shifting, in flux, and i'm finding that even traveling to Canada at this time is no guarantee of a White Christmas. Global Climate Change has confused the hell out of our plant friends, seriously messing with their growth cycles. Still, the flowers of summer are gone by now though i have always found what takes the place of that showy beauty no less photogenic than even the most colorful of blooms. Of course, within a couple of days the temperature had dropped well below freezing and before the new year there was about 8 inches of snow on the ground. If you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes. It was like watching an entire season pass in just a couple of day creating somewhat different framing each day as i approached these jewels of a winter garden.
