  1. Wonderful set of photos! They reminds me of the seasonal photos in Rosemary Verey’s book “The Art of Planting” – a book that taught me to appreciate the seasonal change in the garden. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Those photos of foliage are very lovely. In eastern Washington, our February and March are still brown, or white depending on the storm fronts, and everything except the pines are dormant. In saying that, I have tulip greens stretching toward the light! I love the rebirth of Spring. Cheers to you!

    1. Many years ago I had the opportunity to hear Kurt Vonnegut speak. He told the story of the Unlocking. Here in the northeast he postulated we have 6 seasons. Spring, Summer Autumn, Locking, Winter and the Unlocking, usually the month of March when everything is covered in mud! The Amish in PA have March Mud Actions.

      1. Very interesting . . . The Unlocking season . . . I like that. The tulip bulbs are “unlocking.” Wonderful description. I’m not a green thumb, but I love planting and working the dirt in my whiskey barrels. Pole beans, herbs, tomatoes, blueberries, and things like that. I enjoy your photos. Very inspiring! Cheers! Dana
