Snowy Winter Photos from my Garden

We don’t get a lot of snow usually in Northern Virginia. Located about 20 miles outside of Washington, DC, my home is in a wooded area but not as far west as the Blue Ridge Mountains. Late 2013 and early 2014 have brought a few snow and ice storm events to our area. I would like to share some lovely photos of snowy winter photos from my garden.

Some of the photos are from a recent snow storm. And others were taken following an ice storm earlier in the season. The tree branches, covered in either snow or ice, show a lovely pattern as well as winter interest in the garden. Bushes and their leaves, laden with snow or ice, paint a pretty picture, too. A plant’s silhouette certainly stands out when covered in snow or ice.
