Snow and Ice

Just some random winter pictures from the last few storms.

We had snow.

And ice.

My neighbors' oregano looked so pretty in the snow.

And my rosemary looked, well, icy in the ice.

It's been a lovely winter so far. Not too cold and not an unmanageable amount of snow. Even the ice wasn't bad enough to do any damage at my house, but enough to look pretty. Let's hope things carry on this way until spring. :)
