First Snow in My Garden, Zone 8a


I'm glad we had this light snow before the latest hard freeze killed a lot of foliage and some late blooms.
It laid graciously on the stems, trunks, leaves and buds, thereby transforming the garden into a winter wonderland.
New this season were some splashes of color juxtaposed on otherwise  green-black -white tapestry.

Giant Tetrapanax leaves  were weighted down but didn't lost their shape right  after the snow.
Today, two days after the snowfall, they look pretty miserable.

The folding chair, a $1 parking lot sale find, suddenly became a star of the garden with its bright egg-yellow back!
