up to our necks, but more winter to come

uptoneckinsnow2THE BUDDHA BUDDIES AND I REMAIN up to our necks in wintry mess, with more to come. Send help, send ice-melt, send pick-axes, send drugs.

Out back (top), Big Buddha’s been trying on all manner of hats to stay warm.

snowbuddhaOut front (above), Baby Buddha’s up to his beads in the white stuff.  If the National Weather Service takes requests, like our favorite radio station does:  We really prefer when it’s snowing magnolias (below). Can you please change that tune?

    What would Buddha do? That’s what you should do. They seem content in their circumstances, but then they seem content in all seasons…

      How are you, Jeremy? (And welcome.) I love how the statues are “Now you see us, now you don’t.” Like everything else here, from me to the light outside, they change by the moment…even though they have the quality of permanence because they are made of stone. Nice of you to stop in and say hello.

  2. Grace says:

    As for the drugs, have you checked out Niel’s post at Roses in Gardens? The video is almost scary.

    I didn’t realize you were a celeb. After reading your sidebar, I need to do some clicking and see more. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to work for Martha Stewart. From what I’ve seen she is a serious plant lover too. I hope it warms up soon!

    1. margaret says:

      Welcome, Jeremy. Though things are melting somewhat, I am holding my breath about a storm headed up from the Gulf of Mexico, supposedly, tomorrow night and Tuesday. National Weather isn’t being specific yet…which always makes me wonder. Yes, tomorrow is Groundhog Day, and I have my post ready all ready to deploy at 1 past midnight (even if he goes back in his hole and doesn’t want to read it). See you soon again.

  3. Chloe says:

    I will try to bring some LA sunshine to you the first week in March. Your blog is the inspiration I need to meet the challenge of gardening in Columbia County.

    1. margaret says:

      Welcome, Chloe. After 20-something years, I think Columbia County is the best gardening territory in the USA. Don’t let those Pacific Northwest-ers or those mid-Atlantic-ers tell you otherwise. Here=perfection. Stick around, we will deal with any obstacles together.

    He looks like a conehead. Shades of SNL! And the other reminds me of old Westerns where they bury the guy in sand and wait for the ants to come and finish him off.

    The snow does weird things …

    1. margaret says:

      Thanks, Theresa Loe, and welcome. You are all right…now if only I had those 4 or 6 other hands I am lacking. It would be a hilarious calendar, the many faces of Buddha. Thanks for visiting and do come again.

  5. Nanette says:

    How lovely to find you and what a deeply satisfying photo, particularly at the moment. In my part of the world I am in the midst of a heatwave, cooling images are warmly welcome!

    1. margaret says:

      Welcome, Nanette. Did you say heatwave? I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, but that sounds divine. See you soon again.

  6. Mars says:

    Yeah, sorry, Margaret. It’s a robust 80 degrees here. In no way do I want to be battling freezing weather, but geez! A little cooling and wetness would not be unwelcome.

    Are you there, Mother Nature? It’s me, Mars. I curse your high pressure!

    Hey, anyone check out the moon last night or get any pics? Pretty spectacular, I must say.

    1. margaret says:

      The moon has indeed been amazing, Mars, and so many close encounters with Venus the last month, too. I have been watching up here, bundled up in my woolies.

  7. White On Rice Couple says:

    I’m not sure how my warm weather buddha’s would fare in all that snow! I’m so glad to see that their East coast cousins are still smiling with a white blanket of cold.
    Thank you for the great pictures.
