Oh, my! The view from your window is beautiful. Your garden is beautiful, and your amaryllis is beautiful. Beauty, inside and out. Who could ask for more? Don't let the weather get you down. It just gets persnickity sometimes. Can you imagine what it was like for farmers in Oklahoma during the 30s? They must have thought the world was coming to an end. It will pass, and we will perservere.


Ooh, I like the idea of getting away from the blame game in gardening. There is so much out of our control. All we can really do is guide, tend, and hope.


Nice! Capturing the fleeting beauty of snow in the garden—a serene moment in unpredictable weather. Gardener's dilemma: adapting to the new normal with resilience and finding solace in a blooming Amaryllis.

ELIZABETH — I have to say that I am thrilled I decided to try growing Amaryllis again. I am already looking at other varieties for next year. They really take your mind off any problems and complaints. As for the view out the window, we spent a lot of time at the beginning trying to figure out how to create pleasant views for the long Wisconsin winter. Thanks for the compliment.

JERRY — Seems like the perfect way to get out of the garden blame game, as you say.


I like that attitude as well, I inevitably lose a few plants to winter weather and it is what it is!
The amaryllis is lovely.
