it looks like winter has finally came to the
Hocking Hills Garden.
In the southeastern part of the state we got
more snow than our northern friends.
I wish I could send it to those up in Cleveland that
wanted it but they will eventually catch up and pass
us for snow fall amounts before winter is over.
I must confess that if we had to have snow we
were surely blessed with a beautiful one Saturday.
It was one of those great snowman making snows.
Wet and heavy sticking to everything and washing it
In the woods beside the house the snow covers
and sticks even to the sides of the trees.
The field across the house is just beautiful and
I only wish the sun was shining a little so the
pictures could have been lighter but even with
the cloudy skies all day yesterday and today I
could not stop snapping pictures.
The rododendron bushes have sagging branches
and it looks like my yellow Capistrano one has
broken off to the ground. It has been dying back for
the last two years and I can only hope it will send
sprouts up from it now.
The poor garden kids look cold and their hats
tell how deep the snow was on the ground.
Poor things, maybe I should have brought them
into the shed for winter , but they are still smiling.
Alright I know they're not real!
that just refuse to give up and let go.
This maple leaf is hanging on and sways in
the winter breeze.
This was the only green besides the pines that I
could find around the house.
With all of the snow needless to say there
has been a run on the bird feeder.
Go to my other blog "Natures Scenic View"
to see some of the snow birds.
"There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the
forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the
still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every
blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of
twig, is clad with radiance."
