Thought I'd post some pictures from the aftermath of Pax. It may not look like much, but the 2+ inches of snow we received tops at least an inch of ice!
My dogwood tree is beautifully covered with ice and snow. Most of these pictures are taken from inside as my back screen door is frozen shut.
The front walkway is solid ice - I'll be salting it today.
Bushes are barely holding up under the weight...
As are the trees.
A bit of Christmas-tide:)
My poor Mountain Laurels are bending close to the ground. Normally you wouldn't be able to see the pear tree as it's usually blocked by the laurels.
Hopefully the trees can hang in there. If you go outside you hear the clicks and crashes as branches break and fall to the ground. Looking forward to the sun peeking out later today. Stay safe and warm!
Welcome to Sweetbrier Cottage! You might say that Sweetbrier Cottage is a metaphor for all the good things in life. It’s relaxing atmosphere, warm colors, antiques and collectibles invite you to sit down, have a cup of tea and enjoy a good book or conversation.
With life's stresses, it’s important to have a place, that “special retreat,” to rest and gather your thoughts. Retreats come in many forms – a room, a porch, a garden or even a garage. If you don’t already have a retreat, create one! It only takes a few special touches to make that room or porch your special place. The cottage’s hosts look forward to your visits.
