A couple of weeks ago after a light snow fall I took a walk around my garden. The dusting of snow was pretty and sparkly and made an otherwise rather dull winter garden look a little more special.
On Saturday, we awoke to a world turned white. About five inches of snow had fallen and the garden was postcard pretty.
As the day wore on, the snow began to melt a little, creating tiny, sparkly icicles on the plants.
This was just the calm before the storm, and Monday night saw the start of Blizzard 2015: Juno! I am currently in the process of clearing the snow, but this was the sight that greeted us on Tuesday morning.
By the end of the day we had a good two feet of snow and my ‘gardening’ priority was to clear an escape route from the house. We can only open the front door, the rest are blocked by snow, so clearing the steps was necessary!
Today we have been clearing more paths, wading in the snow, playing with sledges, losing snow boots in snow drifts and enjoying the sunshine in our winter wonderland.
As winter takes hold in our garden, I am joining in again with Annie over at Mammasaurus for the wonderful How does your garden grow?.
