Photo Hunt: Broken

Finally had time to put this up and it's so appropriate as to what's going on in CT and the Northeast US today. 
The bizarre snowstorm in CT has broken my favorite tree to take photos of.  See the limb on the lower right corner?

Here's what it looks like in the Spring.  Now that lower limb is all broken. :-(

This storm is really crazy.  We have six plus inches of snow already today and it's supposed to snow all night plus get winds around 40 mph.   The leaves hadn't even fallen off of the trees yet so they are all so heavy and are snapping branches off all kinds of trees left and right.  

You can see in the back of my next door neighbor's yard some branches that have broken off his trees.  Just about a 1/2 hr ago another HUGE limb broke off of another tree and his whole yard is covered with broken tree limbs now.   It is really important to take care of trees that are rotting and make sure you trim what you can.  It's not easy to keep up with all of them if you are surrounded by trees but with the crazy weather we have had this year it was all stressful for the trees.

End of a Pair

The last burst of beauty for my Kniphofia plant.  This last pair didn't last long and they stayed a lighter color, very little of that pretty orangey red they were earlier in the season.  These are my favorite new flowers and I am looking forward to adding some more to my spring garden.

Saturday Photo Hunt: Public

The Public lined up and waiting to get into a Packers Football game in Green Bay, WI.  This was just one of the lines.  Packer's fans are some of the most well mannered, friendly, nicest people I have ever met!  It was pure pleasure to be at a Green Bay Packer's game and be able to just enjoy the game and the people around us.  They sure know how to have a great time!
