Snow Sled at Spring Hill Cottage

Snow Sled at Spring Hill Cottage

Spring Hill Cottage and Gardens got SNOW  this week! This is a big storm that is winding its way across the country leaving a blanket of snow on mountains, deserts, lakes, rivers and forests.  Here it was big  enough to make it look pretty, and little enough to not have to shovel. In Grass Valley it normally melts off in a few days, so we’ve learned its ok to leave alone.  I took some pictures of the new gardens and orchard with their very first snow dusting. Cottage Garden  in first snow photos are kind of like a baby’s first steps I think. The parents think its wonderful and the rest of the world in just kind of indulgent. So thank you for indulging me…
