Thank you Phyllis Schmidt for your generous gift in support of HortusScope.
Nothing much to do in the garden this month but exercise patience, maybe read a gardening book (Carol Michel has a new one coming soon!), and delve through the heap of newly arrived seed catalogs.
Speaking of seeds, if you’re feeding birds through the winter, you might enjoy a lively write-up about chicadees and other backyard birds at www.indianaudubon.org. This one’s a Carolina Chickadee photographed by Carl Wilms.
