Late Winter Storm

The groundhog was right. After another relatively mild snowless winter, we finally had a significant snowfall.

The view out my backdoor:

Hmmm . . . I’m certain I left my car in the driveway last night.

How deep was the snow? Well, how tall is a gallon container? Those holes in the snow are the tops of my wintersowing.

I loved how the snow made little caps on the dead flowerheads.

Even small flowerheads like these Echinacea.

I took some photos to contrast with warmer weather later this year.



I wish I had taken more photos from different angles of my birdbath.

I love the “shadow” created by the bowl. This could have been very interesting.

You can see more pictures of the aftermath of the storm on Flickr.
