Twenty Centimetres of White

It’s hard to imagine that so much white could exist outside my window. It snowed all day  and all night. People are wading through the snow as if in a rice paddy and not a speck of dirt is anywhere to be seen. It’s an auspicious sign for the garden as roots start to die when they get below -10 C. Every inch of snow provides extra insulation. My plants must bet sleeping soundly and will wake up refreshed and ready to bloom.
