Natural Inspiration III

Since so many of you seemed to appreciate seeing the last batch of these garden snapshots, I thought I’d share a few more I took yesterday and today.  Snow was falling at the time and the light got reflected in odd ways, adding an almost eerie glow.  I can’t believe it snowed so much in November!  Perhaps it’ll be a white Christmas this year??  The doe in the snow was so calm as I took her picture and I found the combination of her demeanor and the snow extremely peaceful.  Meanwhile, the thorns of the Poncirus trifoliata (Trifoliate- Orange) are rather sinister but alluring, don’t you think?

    You’re such an amazing photographer. The shot with the doe is spectacular.

    I absolutely love the picture of oranges in the snow, as well as the picture of the doe.

    Thanks, everyone! You’re such an appreciative audience. 🙂

    Elizabeth – Actually, these pictures were taken in Chester Co…at Longwood to be exact. 🙂 I technically live in Philadelphia though. It was impressive how much snow we got for so early in the year, wasn’t it? Thanks for the comment!

    I live in Denver, which is zone 5/6. I just bought a Poncirus shrub (the Flying Dragon Bitter Orange) and hope to plant it outside eventually. How cold does it get in Chester County?
