Snow in the Garden

The warm weather over the past eight weeks was too good to be true. It has snowed over twelve inches since yesterday, and more snow is expected throughout the day and night. I ventured out to take some pictures of the garden.

Descriptions of the pictures are enumerated from the top:

1. Butterfly Bush decorated with Christmas ornaments in the front garden next to the lamp post.

2. A grouping of spirea next to the front staircase. It is difficult to see with the snow, but behind the spirea are Rosa glauca and miscanthus 'Adagio.' Further back is Wiegela florida to the left and a lace bark pine in the center.

3. Lacecap hydrangea in the front garden. To the left of the hydrangea is the rose Frau Dargmar Harstrup.

4. The arbor over the entrance to the side garden is covered with the rose Dortmund. In the forefront of the picture are caryopteris. For winter interest, I hung a string of decorative apples on the fence.

Looks very nice.

We've had quite a bit of snow up here in Scotland this year, but I have to admit I can't wait for the summer!
