More Snow

For the second time in a week,
we got snow.

Not the 1 to 3 inches promised,
but it is white.

 Once again I went outside to take pictures
for my readers who miss the white stuff.

 The garden looks inviting even in winter.

 The echinacea have dollops of snow on the seed heads.

I don't clear out my garden in the fall
as I firmly believe in giving the wildlife
haven during the winter months.

The birds and small mammals need food and shelter from
predators and beneficial insects need vegetation
so that they can overwinter and emerge in the spring.


Something has been walking along the garden path.

Enjoy, my snow-loving readers!

P. S.  By mid afternoon, most of the snow had already melted.

I want to see more snow please.

Sorry, I can't help you there. No more snow is in the forecast and the temps are supposed to be in the 40s and 50s for the next week or so.

Thanks for posting the snow pictures. I'm one of those readers who misses snow. We haven't had half an inch total all winter. vera charles
