Patterns in the Snow

Every week more snow falls. This week we were going to get a nice three day thaw, and some rain, but the weather man keeps changing his mind. Now we are once again going to get snow. I usually like snow, but then again we don't usually get so much. Our usual winter storm is 6" of snow followed by an inch of rain then it clears up and everything melts.

I took the above photo on the way to the compost bin (which was covered in 12" of iced on snow). My garden is fairly pretty with its coat of snow. We did have rain after that last snow storm and it melted strange patterns into the snow. The stright lines that go from left to right are the edge of my terraces. My garden is not on perfectly flat land, but each of my beds have been made to be flat.

  2. Okay that is just too much snow for me Daphne! It does look pretty and I'm sure it keeping everything nice & warm underneith plus blocking out those yucky winter weeds too.

  3. The snow on the garden is nice. I don't worry about the plants under the snow. It's the bob sled run we have for a driveway that is getting to me. It's February, they will shovel out the groundhog tomorrow. Hope the news is good!

  4. I had a bobsled run recently. I hate that. I need to buy sand.
