Winter Storm

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words...such is the case this morning....

Beautiful but destructive.....














These are all of the pictures I took because I had to put the camera in the house and get to work..
We have a long way to go in getting this cleaned up....the oak tree that has been the focal point of our backyard landscape is no longer healthy and we have to take the whole thing down...  Two enormous limbs broke and fell during the ice storm and caused all the damage to our roof and deck... I am very thankful for homeowner's insurance to pay for some of it...

I am trying to look on the bright side.  I will have a whole new view of the backyard and will get to learn a lot about gardening in sun..   First I will have to dig up most of a perennial bed and move it so the tree surgeon and his crew can drive their truck where my beloved daylilies now live..  Hoping for warmer weather so I can get started on the digging...

And I know that this is minor compared to what lots of you are experiencing with this winter weather.
This is just unusual for Georgia to be so cold...and our first damaging icestorm since we bought this house 12 years ago...

Well, such is life.. As I have heard...I surely have my work cut out for me for this spring...but I'm not complaining.  Change is good even if it comes on so suddenly...

Hope you are safe and warm..

Love, Mona
