Twenty Inches and Counting! (UPDATED)

WOW!  We are buried here with the white stuff!  We are finally going to get a break here and the snow may be stopping in the next hour or so!  It has been intense.  The arbor is still standing.  That's a good thing!  The bushes all around the property are suffering and hanging low.  We need to get out and get the snow off at some point.  That's important so we don't lose branches.  Here is a front garden shot.
Pretty, but dangerous!  Well, I'm going to go out and help The Herbal Husband!  Talk to you later!  I'll update the photos as well! 
 Our car was turned into an SUV!

Feeding the birds is a simple process.  Hope you are save and warm wherever you may be!

Brrrr, it looks so bleak. I'm sure you are so ready for spring.

I have to post another comment about your poll about which kind of light is most effective for the growth of plants. I see that I'm the first to post. I have not thought about this before, but off the top of my head I chose red. I'm probably dead wrong, but I thought of red being complimentary to green. I look forward to hearing your answer.

We're supposed to get snow late tomorrow afternoon into the next day -- they are only predicting 8 inches! That was some snowstorm! But I still love snow -- watching it fall and the whiteness of it freshly fallen.

But trees and shrubs are not the happiest with a large amount of snow!

Hi Flower Lady, Well, the sun is out so it makes it look better than it is! Our neighbor came to our rescue and got our driveway plowed out. We moved our car to the front of our driveway so we only had to make a path from front to back. We are going to be cold for a while, so we are going to keep most of the snow! Thanks for officially voting.

Hi Martha, Yes, snow is really amazing when you don't have to go anywhere! Our trees and shrubs are really in shapes unlike anything I have seen before. We have to keep working at getting the extra snow off. Your 8" snow is supposed to be another 2 to 4 for us on Tuesday into Wednesday. It is winter in 'Burgh. Thanks to you both for stopping by!

I make a lemon verbena candle which I loooove! Lemon is one of my favorite scents! On that note, it may be awhile I see until you get out into those gardens! Me too! Love New England, but I can't wait for Spring!!! Come on over and join my blog. Would love to share herb tips with you :)

Sure makes our little 5 inch snow look like a dusting! Hope everything survives well!

Thanks for stopping by Old Common Scents and Carol. It is going to be cold here for the foreseeable future and there is nowhere for the snow to go. They haven't even plowed the entire width of our street, because there is nowhere to put it and we are supposed to get more on Tuesday! Maybe as much as 6 more inches! Yikes! Well, hope you stay warm where you both are! I will visit. Always like to speak herbs!
