This past weekend was all about snow.
The snow would fall, stop, and then start falling again the next day. Until this month, it hasn’t been a very snow winter. The skies have been full of low, grey clouds.
Mostly we stayed bundled up inside, except for when we were shoveling. On Sunday, Judy took her camera outside to see what she could see. It is nice how the fresh snow outlines the trees in white.
This is what I mean about the stop and start snow. The snow fell, a path was shoveled to along the side of the house to the back garden, and then more snow filled it in.
Another nice thing about fresh snow is how it makes peaked snow hats on various surfaces.

Plants, like these ‘Annabelle’ Hydrangea arborescens, also get snow hats.
The Siberian Elm (Ulmus pumila) in our back garden seems rather ominous on an overcast winter day.
My purchase of a heated bird bath seems more worthwhile every winter. The birds certainly appreciate it.
Poor Rudolph the Rooster. He looks chilled to the bone, or he would if he had bones.
I went out of town on Monday. When I returned on Wednesday, the snow was melting. But I have a feeling we’ll have at least one or two more cycles of snow, melt, freeze, and snow again before the end of March.
That’s all for now.
