Today's photos are from Patricia Hand in upstate New York. We visited Pat's garden twice in 2014, HERE and HERE, and if you'll remember (or refresh your memory) it's packed full of color during summer! As she proves today, it's wonderful in winter, too. She says, "These are photos I took of the landscape here in upstate New York on December 30th. The ground was bare here since before Christmas, with temperatures in the mid-50's. When I awoke that morning I found that Mother Nature had worked her magic overnight and provided us with a white fluffy blanket of snow. I grabbed my camera and out I went to capture this beautiful sight." Pat, your garden is still beautiful, even under all that snow! This just goes to show that it pays to include plants for winter interest amongst the summer showstoppers. Thanks for sharing!

Come and meet up at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show this year!
I'm scheduled to give another GPOD talk (A few of you will be getting emails in the next two weeks as I put together the slideshow…), and a number of people have emailed to say that they'll be at the show, and that they'd love to meet up with a bunch of fellow GPODers!
The RSVPs so far:
Glenda Curdy (Nurserynotnordstrom)
May Kald (GrannyMay) – tentative
Catherine Campbell (CrannyCC) – tentative
Jeanne Cronce (Greengenes)
Chris Niblack (ChrisSeattle)
Kielian DeWitt (Annek)
Linda Skyler (Meelianthus)
So…who else is going to be there?? Let us all know in the comments, and we can start planning an outing! Perhaps after-dinner drinks one night at the bar at the Sheraton? I'll repeat this announcement for the next week or so, at least, and keep a running list of who's coming….enticement for even more people to come. Oh, and when you comment to say you'll be there, give us your real name so that I can plan name tags that include both that and your screen name…
