First Snow


Today we had our first (and probably only) snow of the 2005/2006 winter.  It doesn’t snow very often in Portland, and not very deep.  Last year we had about four inches of snow, with some ice, and it almost shut the whole city down.  You’d think people that go up in the mountains to ski all the time would know how to drive on this stuff, but they don’t.

The planting bed is looking pretty bleak, except the evergreen shrubs on the north side.  I’m hoping all goes well in the spring.

The mystery plants, on the other hand, are still as green as ever.  So are most of the weeds.
