Posting pictures of their snow fall from the last few days that is. Snow is an infrequent visitor to our area. Some winters we get a dusting and every once in a while we get dumped on. Saturday we got dumped on. I would guess we got about a foot of snow.
Now remember, this is Southern Virginia. We have lived here 18 years and whatever snow boots I brought with me from Germany have long since disappeared. So I donned the closest thing I had to snow boots and took my camera and the dogs down the street.
This is Seaford Road about noon. It is a two-lane road with ditches on either side for drainage. You do not want to slide into the ditch.....some places it is about 3 feet deep.
Once back from the corner I looked around my garden and found all sorts of great photo-ops. Here is new growth ready to pop on the Clematis 'Miss Bateman'. A few spent blooms from Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue'.
And who could resist the Nandina domestica berries with the red foliage and a blanket of snow?
In the former vegetable garden the Rosemary looks stunning against the snow and one lone Zinnia stem remains standing.
The snow kept falling as did the temperatures. Ice formed on the creek and the snow covered a good bit of the ice.
And of course there was more frolicing in the snow by my four legged companions.
Stay warm everyone!
