I adore fall. All of it, and everything about it—the cooler temps, the changing light, the shifting of gears. I'm even okay with the return of rain (okay, maybe not the deluge we're experiencing at the moment, but in general it doesn't get me down). I enjoy the feeling of abundance that the garden exudes at the pinnacle of its fullness. And of course, I love the fall foliage colors. ..

Included here are some of my favorite photos of winter scenes captured here at Bloomtown, my home garden, over the last couple of weeks. Typical winter weather is comparatively mild here in NE Portland – we usually get a skiff, sometimes more, of snow each year and the periodic ice storm. Below you'll find a couple of overall scenes from my garden showing some of my trees and shrubs bending under the weight of ice and snow. Love the snow, hate the ice. The ice, though beautiful, wreaks horrendous damage on gardens, trees and homes. I'm fortunate, as most seem to be bouncing back and don't appear to have sustained severe, lasting damage. ..
