A Drone’s-Eye View Of My Garden




– Posted in:
New House, New Gardens

My son has a drone camera and captured these images of our home and landscape in January. It’s always nice to get a different view of the garden. I’ve numbered various features of note and linked to blog posts where I discuss them in more detail. Sometimes the entire post is about that feature, and sometimes you have to read through the post to find where I discuss it. If, like me, you are waiting for the snow to melt, here’s a way to pass some time. Hope you enjoy it! Note: click on the image to get a larger image.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
