WHAT TO SAY ABOUT A YEAR that never really relented weather-wise? Well, maybe this: I’m exhausted, as is the garden. But even with insane precipitation and freakishly timed fall snowstorms followed by a too-warm early winter, I found lots of things to love among the many losses. Some highlights, and lowlights, in a giant new slideshow to close out the 2011 garden year.
Click on the first thumbnail to start the slides, then toggle from image to image using the arrow buttons on your keyboard (or the arrows beside each caption).
One last thought before you browse, however: Your visits to A Way to Garden were among the brightest spots of my year here, of course. Thanks for creating a garden community here with me since 2008, and my best to each of you, and to your gardens, in 2012.
