Evergreens in the Snow

 Prompted by today's prompt on East Lothian Creative Club (to photograph something green) I focussed on the evergreens in snowy Saughton Park today. I'm not an expert on conifer trees i have to admit, but these two are handsome specimens

These lower branches on the yew look lovely in the low wintry sunlight

 and the hedges in the rose garden stand out nicely against the snow and the bare trees in the background looks great too

while there are some fading flowers still on the rose bushes

 There's also a fair amount of ivy 

and despite the sunshine there's still a lot of ice and snow around!

but that didn't stop this pair of blackbirds from having a lively argument! Though they seem to be quite happy in each other's company in this photo

I love looking at snow (in pictures ) ... seriously, yours are beautiful and the evergreen trees perfect surrounded by it! ...We actually may get to see a little bit of the white stuff ourselves this year since we didn’t migrate south. (Its rare in western Oregon, but not unheard of.) .... I appreciated the book review in the post above also (speaking of trees) ...subject matter I care about and an older woman protagonist which really is rare (although I bet the “older” means closer to my daughter’s age than mine. Still rare!)
