They are complementary opposites. Slowly across the meditation circle Yin (darkness) defers to Yang (sunlight).
Happy New Year! The first day of 2015 began frosty cold, but ice crystals on plants in the labyrinth quickly disappeared once discovered by the rays of the morning sun.
I have been dreaming my way through garden catalogs and making plans to fill gaps in the hedges bordering the fence with gardenias, camellias and yet unknowns.
There is a Christmas gift of tulip bulbs to plant this weekend, even as many daffodils are already emerging.
Very special pictures of a frosty morn. Have a great New YEar.
Thanks John. Happy New Year to you.
Hi Susie: Happy New Year! I haven’t been over here in so long and am really enjoying all your recent posts! Just looking at the frost on the leaves this morning makes me realize I should get outside and take some pictures…I’ve been sick since Christmas day (no, not an ideal holiday for me, or our house…) but might make it outside tomorrow morning to shoot.
Let’s get together very soon!
Happy New Year Libby! Sorry you’ve been sick. Would enjoy getting together when you’re feeling better.
Beautiful captures of the ice crystals. I also like that white Dianthus. Have a happy 2015.
Thanks–what a surprise to see the dianthus in good condition. Happy gardening this year.
Lovely photos of your frost, happy gardening in the months to come.
Thanks Pauline. We’ve had many frosty mornings but I finally had a chance to get out early with the camera. Happy gardening to you too!
Lovely pictures of your frost Susie. Happy New Year! 🙂
It’s nice to have some wintry scenes but I’m looking forward to spring. Happy New Year!
And a very Happy New Year to you too Susie!
Thanks Jessica! It’s hard to believe 2015 is here. Hope it’s a good year for you.
What beautiful shots of the ice crystals – gorgeous.
Thanks Judy. I always think ice crystals are fascinating to examine up close. Somehow the camera cooperated!
A frosty morning for the new year, pretty!
That’s great how you captured the meditation circle at it’s halfway point, and even better that the sun is strong enough to fight off the frost!
Thank you. The sunshine was short-lived–back to overcast skies today but it was fun while it lasted. Happy New Year to you Frank. Susie
I wouldn’t mind a little more cold weather if it would just stop raining for a bit! I have not started looking at the catelogs yet, but did pull out some seed to scatter on New Year’s Day and then forgot.
Marian, I am so tired of rain also, but now I read we are in for a really severe, dry cold week next week. What kind of seeds were you going to plant?
Happy New Year Susie, I am looking forward to Spring too but love your photo of ice crystals on the Dianthus, its really pretty.
Happy New Year to you too Julie. I was excited the Dianthus could look so fresh as cold as it has been.
The Pansy looks lovely with crystal frost on it. I hope it didn’t get frost burned.
It’s that time of year again, leafing through and marking plant catalogs. You are so lucky that you can plant tulip bulbs. I planted ones that I rescued but most of them were eaten by squirrels and chipmunks. Hardly wait to see your next season’s garden.
Thanks! The tulips were a gift–I don’t usually plant them because deer are attracted to them and they don’t reliably return each year the way daffodils do. It’s so discouraging for the little animals to thwart our garden plans, isn’t it? I have more plans than usual this year and hope I will follow through on them.
