Snow and Ice

Last Sunday after our snowstorm I went out and took some pictures of the snow and ice on my Sunkist Arborvitae and my Japanese Yew.

A little green for Green Day over at Raindrops and Daisies

And a little yellow for Sunlit Sunday at My Little Home and Garden

Have a Happy Sunday!

These are lovely photos, Barb! Thanks so much for taking the time to contribute the sunny yellow plants to "Sunlit Sunday".

I'm sure Fiona will be delighted as well; isn't it remarkable how three women, in three countries, can be linked through blogging.

Wishing you a good week,
Karen

Dearest Barb,
Wow, beautiful picturs of snow and ice onto the trees!!! Haha, I've never heard of the name of Japanese Yew (even in Japanese) (^^;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Wonderful pics, Barb.

Lavender Cottage said...

Even covered in snow, shrubs add some interest to the garden, and our lives. I like the yellow evergreen, planted a similar one in the fall that I won as a door prize.

Beautiful photos of the snow Barb...reminds me of where I live. We are having another blizzard today with high winds and more snow. It sure is pretty coming down but when February rolls around we've had enough. Just a few weeks to go and we'll see the grass again...trying to be patient. Have a nice Sunday.

Love the snow pictures - and glad it is at your house and not mine - we have delightful rain - and some sun breaks.

Very pretty---as snow on trees can be. We have no snow as of yet---only Rain and an occasional touch of blue. MB

How can we not love winter when there's so much in nature to capture? Love the simplicity of these shots and the way you've "framed" them. Would be happy to have them on my wall.
