Day 102: Still Undercover


Day 102: Still Undercover, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Our harsh winters make serious gardeners find ways to protect their less hardy plants. Many are still covered. I passed a garden full of the white "hats" seen on top of this mysterious plant. The lawn looked like a cemetary full of white tombstones.

I let my plants fend for themselves. Those that survive are meant to live in this climate. I guess that is true of people too. I don't mind winter but I have many friends who try to escape for all or part of the winter. They come back in March and huddle in their coats like this plant, while I start to shed my winter layers, warmed by the sun.
