This Week at the Gardens: February 4th


Think back…way, way back to when the sun shone, the weather was balmy, and flowers were in bloom. That’s right, I’m talking about last weekend.

What a difference a week makes in Colorado! Last week, I photographed blooming hellebore (Helleborus),

witch hazel (Hamamelis),

snowdrops (Galanthus), and heath (Erica.) This week, it’s ice formations and snow on branches.

Never fear, the blooms will peek out once again as soon as the snow melts, but in the meantime, a peaceful walk through the Gardens offers rewards no matter what the weather throws at us.

What great pix, Ellen! They reminded me of one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost: "Fire and Ice": SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, 5 I think I know enough of hate To know that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Which will it be this week? Stay tuned!
