There is Snow In My Garden

We had a bit of a blizzard the other day. I have seen much worse but this was enough to shut down roads and many businesses for a couple of days. It was welcome moisture to the area but not expected. We had been warned of a possible inch or two of snow but not the 12 inches we received.

My garden was covered with snow.

Everything was being coated with a glitter like coating of snow.

The trees were beginning to bow from the weight of it.

When I saw how much snow we were receiving, I quickly slipped on my boots and coat and ventured out to check on everything. I shook some of the snow from the trees that were being crushed. That was an experience. Very invigorating because there wasn't a way to do it without getting snow on me too. Oh well, I might as well enjoy it rather than fuss.

All my critters were hunkered down in their sheds. There was no sign of cats, birds, or chickens.

Just the day before there were roses growing here in the picture below. They are still there just covered with snow now.

Everything in sight was being covered

It made everything seem so different. Later that evening the snow finally stopped . . .

The sun even peeked out.

The trees were saved thankfully by my shaking.

we lost a few of those holly leaves but that is OK.

It always looks so pretty when the snow sticks to the trees like this.

Bert and Ernie were doing OK. They quickly came running as soon as I called to them.

They had been out frolicking in the snow. Naughty goats.

All was well in my garden so far.

Now I get to go inside, slip into my pj's, fuzzy socks and sip on Hot spiced cider. I think there is some reading time coming my way.
Until Next time
Pin It

I've had to shake a snow out of a tree or two myself. I usually get "showered" unintentionally, too. Love the short little gray and white goat: adorable, the horns look a little intimidating, though...

Cheers from Alaska,

That is a fairly sizable dumping for Texas, I take it. And so beautiful, especially when the sky turned blue and the sun came out. Looks like it's a winter for the books. Stay warm.

Wow, I'd say you certainly got more than predicted. It is lovely though, and a change from your every day scene. Everything looks quiet and peaceful. I remember how great it felt going back inside where it is cozy and warm.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

Wow, you did get the snow. It missed us and we had about an inch.
Yes, girl get in and snuggle up in the warm. Good days for reading and looking at gardening catalogs.
Wishing you a New Year filled your heart's desires.
