poor mans fertilizer

************************************
February, a contrary month....
When I was a kid and snow would come in spring covering the fields for just a short time, my Dad would call it 'poor man's fertilizer'. I never knew what that meant until I got alot older.
My Deodar Cedar looked pretty in frosting...


Some trees in the distance looked like spring Dogwoods. The dusting stayed on the leaves awhile.

The prettiest were the cedars and pines..so postcard-ish.


The birds were very active..there's a cardinal on the icy wisteria.

Little Red, my mini stallion didn't mind the frosting, he just wants his morning apple cookie!

Endeavor, in the background is more patient.


It was pretty while it lasted, which was until noon-ish..Thats my kind of snowfall!
Now you see it, now you don't!
