A ramble through Landmark Park took Hitty Agapanthus down the nature trail and along the boardwalk. The woods are still wintry – blessedly free of things that buzz in one’s ear. Some residents, however, have been, well, busy.

The elusive beavers created a tidy dam.

Even from the taller viewing platform, Agapanthus has yet to see the beavers, though evidence of their handiwork can be seen along the water. Perhaps a Hitty might have second thoughts about meeting a creature predisposed to gnawing on wood?

SNOW…had been anticipated, longed for, as well. It is a rarity in the Wiregrass and, however lovely, comes with its own issues. It arrived in the early hours of the morning, falling beautifully against the golden lights in cozy homes.

Now, way down here, no one really knows how to negotiate snow and ice properly, neither persons nor plants. As the sun melted thin snow from the patio rooftop, it was a surprise to find icicles forming on the Gardenia, lodged in the shadows below.

The first frost has come and gone. It’s appearance was welcome and brief, the garden left undamaged. The pace of growth slows and mornings are chilly. Hitty Anne Sabine recorded one of the last blossoms on the Purple Sweet Potatoes. They had bloomed beautifully, albeit elusively, throughout the season, with dark violet throats fading to palest lavender.

The sweet potatoes were an experiment, grown in bags, raised from slips, inspired by the North Country Hittys; encouraged by Miss Belvia at Aunt Katie’s Community Garden and the good folks at the Living Tree.

It is a minimal harvest, but a successful experiment – enough for a jolly supper for the Gardeners, Guests and very small dolls. The potatoes must cure unwashed for a time, but even with the dirt, aren’t they are a lovely color?
