How quickly the landscape can change! Last week we had one day which was almost sixty degrees and today, morning brought a frosting coated garden. Not a heck of a lot of snow, about five inches, but thick, heavy and wet which stuck to everything bending the branches of many trees and shrubs to the ground. The wire fence around the pool is usually unobtrusive and invisible but with this snow it becomes a geometric design of nature.
Tucker loved it and you can see him in front of the field with this look of contentment.

It made me laugh when I saw the picture! Here you can see the trees along the drive coated on the northeast sides of the trunks! The winter garden has structure only because of the stones which the EM put into place. The shrubs are too small to make much of an impact yet although, up close, the red twig dogwood is shining brightly. The hops on the porch are carrying a heavy snow load and it is hard to believe that the garden, which looks like this right now, looked like this in July. I'm dreaming of summer but appreciating the differences each season brings!
