A look back - April 21, 2008

2139 days ago

It's not easy to think about spring this morning awakening to 1 degree F temperatures, but it is coming. One of the first flowers I expect to see is the Helleborus. I've added several other varieties since this photo was taken.

Not so deep in the catalog - March Madness 2008

2185 days ago in New Boston, NH

I am approaching the mid point of this decade of digital photos. 2008 gave us some very interesting weather, starting with a prodigious amount of snow in March and ending with one of the worse ice storms ever. Here are some photos taken in New Boston on March 2, 2008.

Sometimes in the midst of winter, I'm lucky enough to see one of my Epiphyllum bloom. They are ugly plants but the flowers are amazing.

Commonly called an Orchid Cactus
This one bloomed in the cellar under florescent lights
