Garden Tuesday: Before Most of the Storm

Many of you were attacked by the snow and rain storm over the weekend.  We had a little snow on Saturday, and these pictures were taken that afternoon, when it was bright and sunny.

The white mulberry tree out front:
 Pine tree branches on the tree across the street, next to my mailbox (OK, so they might be hemlock.  They can sue me for slander, if they wish.):
 Blue spruce in the back yard, as seen through a poplar tree:
 Elm trees, pine and other assorted lovelies in the late afternoon sun:
Mrs. Santa brought a new zoom lens, and so I had to try it out, to be certain that it's just right.  I was no more than 12" from one door or the other when I took these pictures.

What, you thought I was tromping outdoors in the snow, even just 2" of snow?  Hah!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

This is like Little Women territory -- not that there are any little women at your house. Except for, well, you know.

Beautiful. Mom was visiting uncle in PA during heavy snow a few years ago. Gorgeous. Good idea, a zoom lets you stay inside and snap
