Find the snowdrops...

So where are the snowdrops? About four feet under, to the left of the bench.

We had an absolutely gorgeous hoarfrost morning which lasted a good long time, almost to noon.

Panicum virgatum 'North Wind' is my favorite ornamental grass. It looks so lovely all winter that it almost pains me to cut it down in spring.

This the hill just in front of our house, and here's how it looks in August. What would we do without the sheer drama of the seasons?

  1. Wow, what a contrast of winter vs. spring...something to look forward to, huh? I'm beginning to appreciate the changes of 'real seasons' while looking at all of your wonderful pics (on blotanical). I've never lived in the snow, so thanks for sharing!
