I spent a good bit of my holiday in northern Michigan surrounded by two feet of snow. Word to the wise: Honda Civics do not great snow vehicles make. Lots of time spent by the fire, and a good bit of time spent careening downhill while trying to keep up with my sons and nephew and niece on their snowboards. A reminder- Thursday's "Walk on the Wild Side"(1/7) for January will focus on winter interest planting and design for the native plant garden. Good to be back!
