Gotta Love Winter in Southland New Zealand!

This is what we woke up to this morning.....wow, breath taking!

These larch are hardly recognisable.
 I had to knock a bit of snow off the pines as there was quite a bit of weight on the wee branches.
 This Chinese elm looks majestic with its temporary snow foliage pads.

 This Wisteria looks quite artistic now!

 Snow seems to get rid of all the clutter and shows you the bare bones of the bonsai, as with this Alder.
 This large Hornbeam was sitting on the deck, ready to get some attention over the winter, perhaps its just as well I never got around to it yet.

Snow puts a whole new perspective on our every day views, its natures way of making us take notice of what shapes are around us...........brrrrr, time to put another log of wood on the fire.  MAYBE REPOTTING TIME IS A WEE WAY OFF YET!!
