Finally...A Sunny Day

After days of wind and rain it was so nice to wake up to a sunny day. While out for my run, fellow runners and walkers all had happy faces on. A nice change from the dreary grey.

I actually got to work in the garden to day. It has been so long I forgot how much I love to garden. I finally got around to cutting back the grasses and some perennials that I had left in the fall. I still have to get out and cut back the hellebores. I can't believe how many seedling there are!
It won't be long before they will start to bloom. I love hellebore season. I'm still on the hunt for a yellow and a double of any color. All in all a great day! Posted by Picasa

Well done on the running. It sure feels good once your fit. I am addicted.

I clearly remember that sun peaking out every now and again. It really did cheer everyone on through the grey season.

Oh it looks almost like summer in your garden on that pic! I love helleborus too in every color. I've planted a pair in my new little garden last fall, hopefully they are going to bloom! It's always dark now when I come home from work, but I have to go and look out for my snowdrops on the weekend, they are supposed to bloom soon as well!

thank you, thank you for sharing this scene with us - very evocative and enjoyable. And the nongardening photos - totally cool! Susan

Getting to work in the garden in January must be a real treat for you. It's been wet, dreary and gray here in Columbus for several days.

I was really hoping to get out there today too. Not a chance!

What a lovely grass that is - chair is in the right spot for viewing and appreciating. Grasses seem to be all the rage, especially here in southeastern Australia where there's been a long drought. The grasses can usually stand up to that harshness.

We have hellebores too - great for gardens that get a lot of shade from a mature (40 year old) elm tree.
