Sunny and warm in January
Posted on Jan 21, 2017 8:46 PM

Today we has sunshine , the first in a week.
went for a walk in a nearby park
Thumb of 2017-01-22/gardengus/5581a6 Thumb of 2017-01-22/gardengus/d75361
the small creek that runs through the woods was full , muddy and fast.

found a lot of interesting white fungus on small downed twigs

Thumb of 2017-01-22/gardengus/91184b Thumb of 2017-01-22/gardengus/76572d
and the sycamores showing of their beautiful white bark

With out leaves I discovered an old chimney on the far bank of the creek , took some off path wondering but I tracked it down.

Then I came across an old abandoned cemetery, again I most likely would have never known it was there in the summer with everything leafed out.

The stones were old sandstone and mostly unreadable
the tall stone had a death date of 1883

Perennials and People
Posted on Jan 17, 2017 12:16 PM

I was reading a couple old threads and noticed an interesting connection in my head between people and plants in my garden .
Some are annuals and show up for a season and disappear never to be heard of again. A few of those pop up a couple years later just out of the blue , kinda like a stray seed that germinated rather late.
Some are seedlings that pop up here and there , never take root ,and disappear after a post or two.
Most people seem rather to be like perennials some short lived , a couple years and they just fade away, others like the old-fashion perennials they just keep showing up season after season.

I am the old fashion type perennial will most likely be here till some uncontrollable circumstance uproots me.

Maybe we are a lot more like our gardens than we think.
