Snow Falling On Spruce

From the deck, this cloudy, dull morning, it looks like this spruce tree is weighted down with snow.  One of hundreds of such shrubs, unknown to me, has opened perfumed blooms.  Soon, the entire pasture will be dotted with white and will give off a scent that’s easily detected from a distance.

Miss Rhodie (most likely named ‘Francesca’) has retained her scarlet frock, thanks in part to the cool, damp days of late.

Despite the lack of sunny days, these two calibrachoas in hanging baskets seem to be thriving.  Above, a coral/pink and below, a copper with red center.

    1. Hi Carolyn – thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. :) Yes, I actually remember having snow flurries in early June many years ago. But this time, the snow on the branches was the good kind! :)

  1. Nancy,
    We are much further to the south than you are, here in eastern NC it has been snowing for weeks. That is the willow fluff falls just like snow. Enjoyed the photos, that rhodie needs some shade doesn’t it?

  2. Oh my gosh, the Calibrachoas is just a treasure! (Looks like I need to do some research for the ‘Wishlist”.) Rhododendrons will always have a place in my heart.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
