But last night (and this morning) we got snow. I should probably make it clear, in case I haven't made it clear enough in the past -- I really really hate snow. No, I mean really. I hate driving in it, and I hate walking in it. I know there is a broken hip just waiting for me in the future. But I figured it would add a little something new to the pictures, and lately I can't resist taking pictures.
As I headed out to take these, Nigel called out "Don't fall on yer arse!" I was so touched.
|This is exactly my reaction every time I see that nasty white stuff.
|Carex 'Ice Dance' isn't doing much dancing
|Hydrangea quercifolia 'Snow Queen' looking regal
|Weeping Alaska cedar
|Weeping Alaska cedar have deliberately droopy branches that make it easier to bear a burden of snow
|Native sword fern
|Trachycarpus leaves weighed down (before I gave them a good talking to)
|Although the snow should melt in a couple of days, I shook the snow off all the branches
|Yucca 'Bright Star' not burning very bright at the moment
|Arbutus unedo 'Compacta'
|Technically bare branches don't count as foliage
|My paperbark maple is holding onto its seeds
|I actually considered doing a Foliage Follow-up post with nothing but pictures of moss, since it's so ubiquitous out there.
Foliage Follow-up is hosted by Pam Penick who writes the blog Digging. There will be lots more links to posts of foliage at the link.
