We got some snow, enough to coat everything, on Sunday. And then it turned too cold for it all to melt, so it stuck around, and I tried really, really hard to ignore it. Hoping if I ignored it long enough it would go away quietly.
Well, that didn't work. The weather goddess got mad and dumped even more on me on Wednesday night. I had to take my broom out and knock snow off my palm trees and my Manzanita.

No....must...not....show...pretty pictures of the...despised snow.
|Snow-laden Mahonia branches|
|Pinus sylvestris 'Nisbet's Gold'|
|I had to use my broom to knock snow off the Arctostaphylos, which probably should have been tip-pruned|
|A snowy winter jasmine|
|The birds have stripped the Echinacea seedheads, which look a bit like witches' hats now|
And I hear we might get more. Maybe it's time to hop on that broom and ride off somewhere sunny and warm.
