1 Yes, that's me in the truck - plowing the four miles of carriage roads at the farm. It was so much fun.
2 The front of my stable with all its doors closed, and my dear Friesians, donkeys, and Fell pony safe and sound inside.
3 The property office on one side of the stable courtyard.
4 This is the backside of the stable.
5 Snow drifts accumulated on every surface.
6 Snow even collected on the sill of this small window.
7 In just a few months, this weeping cherry tree, Prunus subhirtella, will be filled with snow-like blooms.
8 One never tires of this view down the Linden tree allee - I only wish it was longer.
9 The snow came down quickly.
10 The great eastern white pines, Pinus strobus, usually stand out in bold dark green over the landscape, but not on this stormy day - this is actually a color photo.
11 I love how snow collects on this 100-year old white spruce fencing I purchased in Canada.
12 The upright posts are newer and made of cedar. This fencing is what surrounds all my paddocks at the farm.
13 Another view of the antique fencing with the majestic white pines beyond.
14 The quiet vegetable garden covered in a thick blanket of snow.
15 A winter wonderland.
16 The landscape looks so magical covered in untouched snow.
17 I love how snow even sticks to the barks of these tree trunks.
18 A view looking between the paddocks.
19 This is a view of the maple woodland.
20 The Weeping Larch tree, Larix decidua, is this curvaceous tree located at "the triangle" where the carriage roads leading to the Boxwood Allee, the Pin Oak Allee and the woodland, all converge.
21 A favorite grove among visitors and guests at the farm - my stand of American beech trees. They are slow to grow, but can live up to 300-years.
22 A view looking down the Boxwood Allee draped in burlap forms and lined with stakes to mark the carriage road.
23 Tucked away between the Equipment Barn and a grove of weeping willows is my pinetum - a wonderful collection of evergreens I started planting about 10-years ago.
24 A snow drift against the citrus greenhouse next to evergreens covered in glistening white powder.
25 The Pin Oak Allee, located just next to the Equipment Barn.
26 Some of the trees retained many of their leaves.
27 These are antique finials on top of my Equipment Barn, which I bought years back.
28 The blueberry bushes under the pergola and the row of quince trees to the right - all surrounded by the accumulating snow.
29 Looking toward the head house from the entrance to the cutting garden flanked by two giant Kenneth Lynch garden urns underneath their burlap shrouds.
30 During the growing season, climbing roses, transplanted from my East Hampton garden, bloom along the inside perimeter of the fence.
31 The side of the main greenhouse - a great place to escape the bitter cold of winter. I could spend hours in here, tending to my many tropical plants.
32 The grove of bald cypress trees, Taxodium distichum, surrounding my basket house. These are fast growing North American natives.
33 I love how the snow gathers on the burlap. Otherwise, snow and wind would surely damage the boxwood.
34 Looking up at my Winter House from the carriage road below the terrace. I am so glad the boxwood shrubs and hedges are safely tucked away for winter.
