Iron fence finials
from our friend Jeff Calton down in Tennessee. He says, "We do not get
regular snowfall here and rarely is it a "big one." Sure, this is
little more than a heavy frost to a lot out there, but I did enjoy seeing the
garden dusted. Just enough snow for the plants to catch and hold it and
add some frosting. It does add another dimension and I am TRYING to embrace
winter. That, of course, is a lie, as I really want to see green grass and
things starting to grow."
