Tucked In

The sun is out after the snowstorm, and it is in the 30s. It was a heavy wet snow, tucking everything in under a blanket, but sitting heavy on the softer evergreens like inkberry hollies and the hemlock.

The stiffer spruces look good with their weight of snow.

And my winter decoration looks great.

I have to figure out a way to get a good shot of the four Tide Hill boxwoods marching diagonally into the gravel garden. This isn't it. I want to show the contrast with the linear sweep of the pea gravel and the defining border, with the boxwoods transecting it.  I'll need to keep working on how to photograph that.

I always love this wintery composition right by the patio wall.
