Snow... Not very often in our neck of the woods, just once-twice a year. That is why - lots of pictures.
The snow was very heavy. Beautiful and dangerous.
9 a.m. - pictures are bluish. I was sweeping the snow from some trees bent to the ground and bushes.
12:30 p.m. - more snow. Broken branches, split shrubs...
Can't even say that I worked hard with my broom for a couple of hours earlier in the morning.
These palm trees in containers are tough, but I try to help them and sweep the snow
Japanese maples are beautiful any time of the year
Sure, this birdbath would be more safe if covered for winter, but I want to see it year around, I love it. I remove water periodically.
Kitchen garden. Garlic is growing nicely, and I know it'll survive.
I brushed the snow off this bamboo
Sorry, Red Plastic Tub, I left you outside... I was already doing some spring ha-ha cleaning!
Potting bench. And what is that tall brown stick on the right?
It's my tallest Tetrapanax.
I hope this huge rhododendron branch will be OK. Cleaned it a bit.
Two bent Aralia plants created an arch
I do love Fatsia japonica (aralia). I'm sure my plants will be fine.
Yucca will be fine, too
It's No School day...
It's also No Milk Delivery Day and No Trash Pick Up Day. But our postman made it!
Beautiful Japanese maple, a gift from a wonderful gardener. Thank you Radell!
This Agapanthus was a star in the winter garden... till it collapsed.
Great illustration - why it's dry under the big trees.
California lilacs, above and below, bent down as never before. Swept some snow off them.
Even wire plant supports look decorative under the snow
We made a circle around the house
How would my garden look without these huge trees?
Someone is very happy!
Escallonia border was hit hard. Many branches got broken.
Greener part - it's where I removed some snow.
Noon. The same places, but with more snow.
It's a joke, but - isn't it a good time to trim these California lilacs?
I wouldn't even need a ladder to reach their tops!
More snow on the maple
The rhododendron branch lifted a bit after I brushed off some snow, but more snow is coming...
Cyclamen are protected by the trees. It's nice to see some color!
Ouch! Almost all my boxwoods look like this
Thank you for walking with me. I hope you stayed warm!
