I knew I had to stay close because snow was in the forecast for the region. It was a waffling, hard to pin down forecast. My favorite weather blogger, Cliff Mass has carefully explained the hows and whys of snow in this region. He has shared day by day changes that set up this snowfall. But poor Cliff, his words were perhaps not chosen wisely. The snow is not of grave and great consequence right now, but falling it is! The roads are not an issue and I was thrilled to be at this pretty garden with the snow making magic. Trouble with this region is there are pockets of micro-climates. Five miles over the way the weather might be totally different. Unusually, today it seems it is snowing more near the Puget Sound. Such a large body of water usually warms the surrounding air.
This is a working garden with potting stations, work areas and evidence of cleaning and pruning. I see this pile of branches and immediately see a potential foundation for a woven, living fence.
