Our Winter Wonderland

Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of our first snowfall of the season this past Saturday.  So, I dug out these photos of a snowfall from January 2009 to show you.  You can compare these with the photos I posted of an autumn perspective earlier.  

I read that the River Birch tree with the peeling white bark would look lovely against the green of Leyland Cypress evergreens in winter.   Which is why I planted the two types together across our shallow backyard.  And they were right - isn't it beautiful?   Hubby and I had a fun day visiting the Brandywine Museum in Chadds Ford, PA.  Every Christmas season they have a great toy train display and this year they also had an exhibit on Alice in Wonderland art & book illustrations.   What did you do today? Pin It
