It’s Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – Kitty’s First Snow. My little two year old kitty, who was too squirrelly to let out last winter, was ready for his first snow in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I awaited with IPad in hand to record this momentous occasion, ready to see his reactions to putting his paws into the snow and then watch him shake it off. I was not disappointed. Watch his first reactions in this brief video.
The rest of my offerings are of our garden in snow after Raja has gotten a feel for snow. The first image is of Raja on the fence looking out between the branches of my neighbor’s contorted filbert.
The backyard pathway in the snow.
Next comes our beauty berry with snow making a lacy pattern near our back deck.
And these are the vibrant purple berries on my other beauty berry.
In my side yard is this enormous sword fern, covered in snow.
And the bright berries of my fringe flower are covered in snow.
My favorite spot to sit is this bench, now covered in snow.
While my black mondo grass and miscanthus have a dusting of the white stuff.
The seed heads of my echanacea reminded me of the vibrant purple flowers of summer.
And lastly, is the cluster of grasses I have in the front, poking up through the inch or so of new snow.
Much of the snow is melting now that the temperature is above freezing, yet it continues to fall. We will see what wins – the snow or the melting in my garden.
I believe that I will post this now and rerun on over to May Dreams Gardens to dream of May and see what others have to show off this fine January day.
