This is the year of Snow!
Four old Flexible Flyer sleds.
The Boxwood shrubs are almost covered with snow.
Animal footprints in the snow.
The Quince tree.
The Bamboo is evergreen.
Garden furniture covered with snow.
The Yew bush catches snow.
Leaves on the Rhododendrons curl up tightly like pencils.
Pots with cuttings winter near the foundation and in the sun.
Snow weighs down the grasses.
Kevin trying to blow the snow away.
The back steps need sweeping.
The first snowfall required tall boots,
and a corn broom and old iron snow shovel do a great job on the dry snow.
The Callicarpa bush shows its purple berries,
and the American Holly out front has red berries for the birds.
The split leaf maples make dramatic silhouettes.
Cement urns catch the snow.
Ivy covered trunks of the back back trees contrast with the white snow covered lawn.
The door to the large barn is blocked with a snow drift.
A side wall drift.
It is snowing again today. These last two pictures predict yet another storm for Long Island.
Well, I guess that we can look back at these photos when it is really hot in July and August.
