It's been a very wet winter here so far, not entirely unusual just that extra rainy. Great photos as usual, especially the rose hips!

Work in the garden in December? Not something I'd ever do. The winter is for reading about gardening, dreaming about gardening, not gardening. Love that hammelis!

In Seattle, fall is for planting, winter is for pruning, spring is for weeding & summer is for watering.
