Yep, still winter....

More snow the other day -- it is still February, after all; we're lucky it's not much worse. Here are a few white-on-white photos of our yard, which look interesting because of their graphic quality:

The garden shed and gazebo. The pond is actually
under the snow on the far left, not that you'd guess....

The herb garden, snowed under. The hedges outlining
the formal beds are completely hidden (which I hope
means the boxwoods will have enough snow cover
to survive our severe cold temperatures....

 White house, white snow, white sky.
(There's still a blue sky on our porch ceiling.)

The rainbow border, no rainbow colors today.

Brrr! Only a short "outside kitty adventure" this time.

I hope everyone is keeping warm inside, while reading garden catalogs and dreaming of spring -- only 34 days till March 21st!


  1. It looks beautiful. Suspect there will be some melting this week. We're over 40 degrees today. :)

    1. Thanks, Beth! I read 44 degrees here today, but our thermometer is on our house and I suspect it's not always 100% accurate. Still, that's about 40 degrees warmer than it has been recently!

  2. Brrr! Poor cold little kitty. It got up to 50 yesterday in the STL. Cold today, but we're supposed to hit 60 next week. I'm ready for crocuses and tulips...

    1. 60 degrees! I'm so envious.... With many more days of those kind of temps, you will be seeing crocuses before long. We can't wait to visit you guys and the MOBOT when it's tulip time. Yay, Spring!
