Arboretum Finds

Finally had some time to sort the photos from the last trip to the Arboretum. The 18th was a beautiful sunny day. Which has been pretty rare this winter. The theme this winter has been cold, windy, and snowy (yes I realize that’s probably not a word, but it’s my blog).  Yesterday they called for up to an inch of snow… we got 6. I don’t know how they messed that prediction up so horribly. Really threw a kink in my plans for the day too. I manage to navigate my way home from work on barely plowed roads, up and over the mountain that marks the end of one county and beginning of another. Apparently the two counties are not on the same page about snow management either. I followed a snow plow up the mountain, hoping to follow it at 30 mph. down the mountain too, only to see it pull off at the top.  Upon getting home and relaying this story to Chris, he reminded me that county line ends there. Pretty silly. Anyway, I got home safe, despite the wound up bird dog whining the whole way home in the back seat. Now to the photos..

Winter Hay

this subject/location could be awesome with better light timing.. Will have to keep it in mind

Now off to MD we go to show the husband around the new job location etc…

    Love the shots. They all say Winter very nicely. Cool hay/netting texture shot. I’m partial to trees, so of course my favorite is the third one down. Reminds me of the Ginkgo Grove at UVA Blandy Experimental Farm–it’s a must in summer and November–the leaves are a lovely golden before they fall.

      Glad you liked them.. and I have always liked trees too.. And I don’t know the name of these trees (should have looked) but it was at the experimental farm.. taht’s the VA arboretum, they are together. That’s out new hiking spot for Luna and I.. Probably will go there tomorrow to let her run. We will have to go together this fall, would love to catch the ginkgo fall colors. The Cedars of Lebanon lane is neat as well, I really like any rows of trees lol, but liked those due to biblical stuff. Need to get a nice shot of that lane to send to dad.
