Happiest holidays

by Caroline Brown

Hope everyone had/is having a wonderful holiday. We’ve had a remarkably mild New England fall & winter so far–no snow yet–but the vegetation still doesn’t compare to that of the southern U.S. It’s cold there–but there’s a lot more green stuff.

Here are a couple of North Carolina pictures from my visit a couple of weeks ago. This little shed near the local library has been overcome by ivy. I thought it was unique because most of the vines that I’ve seen overtaking outbuilding in the south are kudzu.

Keep visiting because soon I’ll be posting articles the effects of global warming on gardening, as well as an article about peat. (try not to get too excited, people.)

In the meantime, hope you’re having a relaxing week!

  1. Wow…reminds me of those little English cottages you see in travel books where it looks like the house itself is rooted to the ground…looks so cool. I often wondered if it were a good natural insulation…any idea?

  2. Many happy holidays – I’m thinking snowy thoughts!!!
