We're experiencing a 57 degree January thaw today. Unfortunately it's underwater. The good thing is that the gardening catalogs have been arriving. I spend non-knitting evenings browsing them, lingering on the strawberry plants. I'm even thinking about putting in a few blueberry bushes this year. I think I'll only plant fruits and vegetables that I would consider a treat at a farm stand. Enough with the green beans and squash...I'm posting some photo's from summers past and a beautiful tropical butterfly that I admired at Magic Wings in Deerfield, Mass a couple of summers ago.
