Meadow pond surrounded by snow in the SC Botanical Garden
A winter morning walk brought me by the Meadow Pond, which was lovely in the early light. Campus is closed again today because of heavy snow and icy roads, but with AWD, the short trip to the Garden was uneventful. The two killdeer flying around the meadow were a treat to see -- a sign of winter. I saw flocks of killdeer last year at this time, but the meadows weren't covered with snow!

About this blog
Our gardens (now solely in the mountains of NC) have been increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, puts his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
