Included here are some of my favorite photos of winter scenes captured here at Bloomtown, my home garden, over the last couple of weeks. Typical winter weather is comparatively mild here in NE Portland – we usually get a skiff, sometimes more, of snow each year and the periodic ice storm. Below you'll find a couple of overall scenes from my garden showing some of my trees and shrubs bending under the weight of ice and snow. Love the snow, hate the ice. The ice, though beautiful, wreaks horrendous damage on gardens, trees and homes. I'm fortunate, as most seem to be bouncing back and don't appear to have sustained severe, lasting damage. ..

What a month to participate in my first Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, a blogging tradition started by May Dream Gardens! I'll only have few photos to contribute this month, as blooms are pretty spare out in my garden at the moment. Even just a week and half ago my offerings would have been much, much different as we've had a very mild launch into the winter season with temps well above normal so I had quite a few late summer blooms hanging-in here and there. ..

Fall is the perfect time to step back, assess your garden's performance, and make plans for what you'll tackle next. There’s as much to learn from observing what’s working well as there is from what’s not; making a note of plants that are thriving is as valuable as identifying those that are struggling and/or not performing well. ..

Late summer, easing into fall, is hands-down my favorite time of year—a bit less going on and a tad more time to enjoy it. Vacations are winding down, school's back in session, and spending less time watering allows for more time enjoying the remnants of summer still on display in my garden. ..

Yes, summer is still in high gear in the Pacific Northwest, but it does feel as if we’re seeing the back side of the hot weather’s last hurrah. As the
angle of light settles lower, a sense of the changing seasons is setting in; routines are on track for a big shift as schools ease back into session
and thoughts of fall garden projects percolate into our consciousness. But if previous years can be a guide, we’ve got many days in store of pleasant
temps and many opportunities to continue enjoying the garden enchantments of the season. So as we steer a course for fall, I’d like to take a moment
to revel in some ornamental grasses, fantastic contributors to autumnal scenes, that are taking center stage in gardens now.
