The Icicle Works

Greetings Wild Indigo readers and welcome to 2016! Here at Celtic Gardens Mother Nature has aimed her wand wielding a most icy spray. The affect was a magical crystalline landscape.

Dew of the Sea
The large mound of rosemary hasn't met her match despite being weighted down by the ice.  Its name comes from the Latin rosmarinus, "dew of the sea," referring to its blue flowers and rosemary's Mediterranean habitat on cliffs above the sea.
Coral Honeysuckle
Have care: impalement warning!

Since the photos were shot Celtic Gardens has shed her icy crust and breathes a sigh of relief. A small branch from the cedar out front fell but we escaped without substantial damage. However winter is far from over!

Stay tuned for more Celtic garden mayhem and as always may happiness be a ray of light in your minds, body and soul!
