The big snow we are getting today called me to action, grabbing the camera kind of action.
Julie likes to refer to the pot on the left as the flying saucer. Add on the snow and I now believe it looks somewhat alien in appearance.
I’d like to add that the flying saucer brings great visual interest to the landscape in the winter time scene. A simple vertical element reaching up through all that white.

Great Peril to Myself
So off I went struggling deep into the massive snow, 3.0 ft away from the back door into several inches of snow to get these images for you. It was quite the expedition, but don’t worry I’m okay.
Braving the elements I was able to get several award winning shots of the pots, woodlands, and flora still sticking up through gigantic snowbanks.

To my Left
I forced myself to step out another foot or so and a couple of steps to my left to capture the spirit of the pots as they continued to fill with snow.
In the background are the pots that held tropicals this past season . . . including a very nice banana tree. The red trunk with the large red/green leaves played very well against the aging cedar fence.
I also like how the ‘grape vine‘ on the trellis is capturing snow and creating that scene for us to admire.It’s a small vignette but one that(at a glance) makes it appear that snow is somehow clinging to the fence.
My office window is just to the left of that trellis and it’s a nice view out the window. The fence, the trellis and the woodlands beyond . . . a view that never tires us.

Finally . . . a stunning collage of what’s happening across the back yard on this winter day as the snow continues and the temperatures drop into single digits, I appreciate the winter view we have created to compliment the woodlands backdrop.
