It's going to be warm enough the next few days that all our snow should melt. Perhaps it will be enough to even defrost the pond — or spur me to get out and cut down the plants (below) that were waiting my attention when the snow originally fell.
The potential lack of snow means that the numerous wire cages will visually disappear into the landscape a bit more. I don't like the way they make the winter garden look, but I like the rabbit damage even less. Here, two dwarf Ginkgos are protected.

The same general area as above but looking in the opposite direction.
