Hello, and welcome to my snowy garden!
We have more than made up for our late start to winter this week.
It has snowed nearly every day of the past week.
It has been very cold the past few days, as well.
Today the high is just 25 degrees F, while tomorrow and Saturday the highs don't get above 15 degrees F. Brrr!! I guess all this snow is going to stick around awhile (much to the delight of my children.)
Let's start out front:
It's at least a foot deep out there.
A few dried hydrangea blooms with a frosting of snow.
This time last month we still had some hardy geraniums blooming around the base of the mailbox.
You can barely find the mailbox now, thanks to shoveling the driveway all these times!
These are the laurel bushes, here in front.
Also nearly completely covered over now.
The entire bottom terrace out front, in fact, has disappeared!
(Above and below): Echinacea seedpods with snowy hats on.
Bridal wreath spirea in the front porch bed.
Now to the back:
The vegetable garden terraces.
The ornamental plum, outlined in white.
(I guess ice fog is good for something!)
Pretty mockorange leaves.
Sedum seedheads next to snowy rose.
These are under the eave of the house, otherwise we might just see the tops peeking out!
I hope you enjoyed this quick tour of my garden!
(It had to be quick--my camera kept freezing up.)
Now, bring on the hot chocolate!
I'm linked up with Carol over at May Dreams Gardens today.
Do you still have actual blooms in your garden right now, or you buried under a snowdrift like me?
