Back in November I took a little trip up to Longwood Gardens in Delaware. Here are some shots of their winter display. Nothing like gorgeous blooms on a dreary, drizzly day such as we are having today.
On this cold and freezing day,
The Russian sage does gently sway,
And miniature roses perfume the air,
I can see them blooming there.
Though days are short, my vision's clear.
And through the snow, the buds appear.
In my mind, clematis climbs,
And morning glories do entwine.
Woodland phlox and scarlet pinks,
Replace the frost, if I just blink.
My inner eye sees past the snow.
And in my mind, my garden grows."
