Travails in my zone 7 Virginia garden are interrupted by occasional travel postings.

The Poor Man's Mulch
Boy, did we get a lot of it! After four snowstorms, I've lost track of just how much snow fell in Ferry Farm, but it was at least a couple feet. The last time we had anything like this was 1996. Climate change is spooky... Here are a couple images.
The snow allows evergreens to show at their best. Most of the time, my eyes seem to glide right past them. But the snow reveals their structure in the most beautiful ways. Here are two pictures of the snow-bedecked cedar in the back yard.
