Nice, is that 'Gold Coin' or similar cultivar?

I actually enjoyed this past winter more so than June and July!

Nice, or I should say, cool pictures. I especially love the image of the golden pine!

Very cool pics, everyone! That golden pine is my Pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph', taken a few years ago.

It's over 3 feet... that would be 1 meter in King's English, I think! Unfortunately, it's quite sick these days. We had an especially wet winter 2 years ago and it lost every needle, but new growth came just fine. I decided to move it the following winter, and now it is barely hanging on. The parent tree grows in a hotter, drier climate than soggy Seattle. I think it can be a finicky little guy!

Very nice, tj! That is a really beautiful hosta. And no slug holes! Do you know what slugs are? (just kidding)
We live in slug heaven...

Ahhhh... Wonderful snow pics! We certainly are NOT in a drought here, but we rarely get that kind of snow. Love your 'Chief Joseph' shot in all that snow and gorgeous light!
