Patty Eckels shared some images of her snowy gardens over the years.
These first pictures are from the house when we lived in Maryland in 2003. This was after a big heavy snow in December.
You can barely see a lighted Christmas tree in this picture. Behind it, all drooped over from the heavy snow, was bamboo. The bamboo was 15-20 feet tall. When the snow melted, it stood back up and was still green.
These Adirondack chairs are wonderfully comfortable and inviting in warmer times of the year! They do look beautiful surrounded by snow.
The snow lining every twig of trees makes a picture-perfect winter scene.
We decided to move to Charleston, South Carolina, in 2007, where it was nice and warm. And then in 2010 I had snow-covered palm trees in my backyard! This was the first snow we had here in the South, and I didn’t like it. Then last year it snowed again and lasted for four days. I think I’ll have to move farther south!
