The garden now looks like part of the woods. It is tamped down and waiting for more snow and freezing cold. We will do nothing more with it until we rake some of the leaves off in the spring for mixing in our composter.
I will photograph the garden again in the spring and add it to this site.
Just after I took this photo, Joseph shouted from the deck for me to turn around and look at the lake. Much to my amazement, when I turned around I saw a pair of Bald Eagles flying by, looking so magnificent. Sorry that I did not catch a photo of them, but I will remember this moment for a very long time. In real life and at this close range, they look very regal.
