1 This is one of a group of four Sargent crab apple trees planted along the driveway. They are covered with gorgeous white blooms in the spring time.
2 The blooms turn into tiny crab apples, which birds are drawn to.
3 A flock of robins found these trees and spent the better part of the day feasting on the crab apples.
4 Fruit on trees ferments over time and birds actually become drunk from eating it. When this happens, birds often act erratically.
5 The weeping habit of a Camperdown Elm
6 The grove of bald cypress next to the basket house
7 This is an owl house attached to a spruce tree.
8 Spruce with snow
9 Spruce needles really collect snow.
10 The snow looks very pretty, but its weight puts a great deal of stress on the spruce branches.
11 This is the fence surrounding the cutting garden next to the greenhouse.
12 This is the head of a mammoth sunflower hanging on the garden fence. Birds have been eating the seeds.

19 Looking towards the apple espalier grove, the carport building, and my house

21 A view of the stable
22 The boxwood hedge around the peony bed - Fortunately, this is a light snow and won't hurt the shrubs, as they have not been wrapped in burlap yet.
23 Another view of my house
24 The miniature donkeys seem unfazed by the snow.
25 Hey, Rufus and Clive - Let's play a trick on the blog readers!
26 One, two, three....
27 Let it snow!
28 Thank you for the animation, donkeys!

43 Another owl house hangs upon the sycamore - this one occupied by a screech owl.
44 Another view of the sycamore from the other side
