watches over the barren space of the garden, waiting for the next planting season.
Not even a crow is interested in stopping by to test the scary moves of such a worn out
Underneath the quiet frozen grounds............
daffodil and tulip bulbs wait for the warmth of the sun to awaken them.
The pond fish barely move, in the cold still water.
Although all is quiet and still.............I find it is a great time to do outside work that I have had planned for a while. I finally finished making a path that leads to the pond.
I used various broken pieces of old cement and stones........... and mixed it with my own cement stones that I created over the past summer/
Since it is a pond path, I incorporated fish that I fashioned out of cement...........
I also pushed seashells into the cement stones I made........these shells my children and I gathered on our beach vacations so many years ago when they were small.
Now I can remember those sweet times, each day as I walk out to feed the fish.
If you remember, I posted about planting and growing loofah sponge seeds. In the early summer, they looked like large cucumbers. Now they have completely dried.
I rubbed and peeled off the brown skin............
and underneath..........was a loofah sponge!
Inside of the sponge are the seeds. Just tip over and gently shake out and now you have a fresh loofah sponge for your bath..............with seeds to plant for next year!
Have you ever grown these?
Although it is cold, we have sunshine...............
at this time I know that a lot of you are underneath a heavy blanket of snow and extreme cold temperatures from the storm Hercules.
I hope this finds you all safe and warm during this period.
Hope warm sunshine shines it's way to your door soon!
