Winter is a hard time to write about the garden. Not much going on this month. I thought about detailing how to dig up dahlia tubers or the importance of cleaning up old tomato plants felled by this week’s first frost. But when I grabbed my camera to walk around the garden I walked to the edge of the deck and there sat our old wheelbarrow… filled exquisitely frozen water. Honestly, who but God could take water and turn it into something so beautiful?
The rust of the old wheelbarrow went so well with the frozen designs.
While I did a little magic in Photoshop, it didn’t take much to bring out the color and contrast that were already there….
It’s amazing how a little bit of water in a rusty old wheelbarrow can become a thing of beauty if…. we just stop to see what’s there.
So,instead of a spade maybe grab your camera and take your own little
“photo walk” around the garden and see what you can find! There will be plenty of time for digging and planting when the ground thaws a little!
