A December Garden Walk


Its a balmy 50 degrees here in Connecticut today and awfully hard to believe that its December 19th. Emotionally, its been an awful week for Connecticut – for everywhere – so pansies still blooming at this late date seem such positive proof that there is still beauty in the world.


I walk past the greenhouse most days on my way to the compost, but today I popped in to give the rosemary bushes a drink and to check on the gourds drying on the bench. I’m amazed that one of the summer annuals is also still blooming away and a small geranium that had faded when I brought it inside has perked up with the cool air in this little unheated greenhouse.


This 6 x 8′ greenhouse was a Costco purchase and has been standing through several winters so far and is not showing any signs of wear. I think it was a great investment!

About Susan Guagliumi

I am an author, craftsperson and a gardener. My proposal for a book tentatively titled "The Artful Gardener" was just accepted by Stewart, Tibori and Chang Publishers. Although this will be my fifth book, it is the first outside the area of hand/machine knitting. The manuscript is due early in 2013 and the book is scheduled for Spring of 2014. A somewhat longer process than giving birth to a child, embarking on an author's journey can be just as daunting, exciting and almost as fulfilling.
