Winter Garden Tour

It is snowing!
Are we breaking snowfall records?
Another big snow storm today. Then outside we go and clean up. My husband roof raked our house roof, he will need to do it again after this storm.
 Our youngest son helps shovel. I take turns helping both.
I  sweep the snow off my greenhouse roof and go around and take photos of all this snow.

Let's go on a Winter Wonderland Garden Tour ..

 My lovely peony are sleeping sound under that pile of snow.

 The path from the house to the garden.
My decorative mailbox for "The Little Garden That Could".

 The greenhouse.. with the Christmas tree inside.

For Rent.. I have seen a few chickadees take a peek at this birdhouse in the last few days. 

 A peek at the greenhouse at night.

 I enjoy looking out at night to see the Christmas tree twinkling lights.

 Tracks.. not just man.. but the rabbits have started to use the deck to cross the deep snow.

 More tracks.. visitors who peeked at the greenhouse and wanted to know if anything green was inside to nibble on. 

 Sunflowers sporting their winter hats.

7 to 10 more inches of fresh snow falling today.
We have more in the forecast for Saturday!

 Mother Nature added her own sparkle to my greenhouse.


  1. You got a LOT of snow! I love seeing the tiny tracks! What is that sparkling in the greenhouse? Maybe fairies are playing in there.

  2. I think that our mailman even chickened out today. 8" so far here and supposed to continue til midnight! Glad we postponed our date! In just a few months we'll be looking at all those lovely flowers which, it's hard to believe, are lying dormant under all that snow. Isn't God amazing! xo

  3. It looks so pretty but it must be very hard having to deal with over a long period of time.

  4. It is snowing very hard here right now. We are already way over our record limit for February. This started out with freezing rain so you know what it is like here!!!

    I love your greenhouse, Carla.

    I love little chick-a-dees. I think they are my favorite winter bird. We don't see them at all in this rental. Can't wait to get to somewhere where I can feed the birds. xo Diana

  5. Carla, I love the photos of your beautiful snow and love how you have photographed tracks of the little animals scurrying about trying to stay warm! Still no snow here in Texas. Today was warm and green things are starting to bloom. Love and hugs!

  6. Snow, snow, and more snow! We're getting loads down here in Madison, too, which is less common for us. I mean we get it, but usually not this much! A little warm-up this weekend will melt some of it. Yay!

  7. Oh my, just look at all of that snow! It's beautiful, my friend :) Enjoy the remainder of your week. Hugs!

  8. Wow, you waited a long time for the snow but you sure hit the jackpot. That a lot of snow. We are supposed to get some again tomorrow.
    I hope you can either ski or snowshoe in all that snow.
    Hugs, Julia

  9. That really is a lot of snow! We had huge snowfalls too, but most of it has melted already!

  10. Oh Carla we down here in Illinois are right there with you. We are not getting hit with that big storm you just got but we had the freezing rain and about 8 inches a few days ago. Ugh!!! I am so over this winter. They are saying down here that come mid March we will be in the 60's and 70's for temps and will have an early Spring I am holding onto that hope. We are way over our record snow too. This winter has been harder than normal. Glad you can see your twinkle tree and that makes you smile looking past all the snow. Take care and be safe with all the snow coming.

  11. That snow looks absolutely beautiful outside the greenhouse!

  12. I don't think I've ever seen snow that deep. Your little greenhouse looks so sweet and pretty sitting out there. You come up with the neatest ideas.

  13. Oh my goodness, so much snow!! We've had relatively mild snowfall totals this year...but we've been there. It looks nicer in your neck of the woods! ;)

  14. It is so beautiful, Carla, and I can't help envying you for it but realize I might change my tune if we'd had as much as you have. Surely it is good for the garden though, right? But maybe not so good for gardeners who can't wait to get to their greenhouse.

  15. Wow, that was a lot of snow! I love the photos.

  16. How much snow did you get last night? I am sure the little critters appreciate your porch being cleared and the paths so they can more easily get to where they are going!
