Garden journal entry


January 17, 2009. My first journal entry of the new year, to honor the cold snap we're experiencing - the temperature was -2°F when I woke up this morning, colder than I remember seeing in recent years. So we'll see how well marginally hardy plants fare this winter. Meanwhile, the big pond is going through interesting ice patterns. We leave the circulation from the main pond through the filtration bog going year-round; ordinarily the flow comes across a pebbly ford, but the entire surface of the ford is now covered in ice, with water and air bubbles performing shadow puppetry underneath. I took this picture standing on the middle of the main pond - the ice cover felt nice and solid!
