Snow Cover

Shortly after it began snowing on Sunday, I stepped out under the pergola a took a quick pic.  It had begun.  The local forecast had predicted 4-8".

Two hours later, I saw all the turkeys (dark "blobs") hunkered down under the Eastern cedars which provide great cover for them as well as the deer.  

Eastern red cedars are not really cedars.  They are Junipers.  While twigs and foliage are eaten by the "browsers", their berries are eaten primarily by Cedar Waxwings.  Reaching a height of 40-50' they make excellent windbreaks and natural "screens."

seeing, saying, sharing...

I did not know that Red cedars are actually Juipers! We have a bunch of Juniper bushes on our property line out back.

Looks wonderful - we are having a cool summer (no bad thing in my opinion!!) maybe it means we will get lots of snow in the mountains this winter - I hope so!
