Snow Day On Elm Street
The quiet of our first snow of the year (actually the first snow we’ve had for two or three years) arrived last night and we woke to a garden and grounds blanketed in white. Even though the snow is not deep and does not quite cover everything, it still transforms all that it touches.
So for those of us to whom this soft covering of our grounds is a novelty, here are pictures of Elm Street Gardens in the snow.
A view from the main floor of the house of the formal garden. Such gardens were often part of the landscaping in the 1840's and were meant to be viewed from above in the house. This way, formally attired ladies did not have to soil their skirts on the ground but could still enjoy the garden.
