Soggy Saggitarian

At long last, winter is near! The gray days make the colors of little flowers and house sparrows pouncing on the deck pop out. I also peeped a flock of male robins in an orange leafed tree giving a good show to an onlooking female. It is awfully cold in this old building. The season is already biting. My Saggitarian heart is bursting! 

Despite the chills, the garden keeps blooming:


Rainbow Party mishap: a shoe stomped through a rotten drawer planter? The cabbage looks root bound.

Amaranth in three shades are still spotting and ready for an experimental harvest this week.

Alyssum and other teeny white flowers make a mini-meadow of this old sink.
