We were going to say something about being "frozen in time," but decided to show visitors some mercy. Aren't you glad? Isn't it a nifty photo?
A beautiful gazebo in the park's Daylily Garden provided a rare note of color in the storm.
|Winter on the Lake|
Lake Drummond in Close Memorial Park is always beautiful, and winter, and even ice storms, are no exception.
Springfield caught the brunt of the ice storm, leaving trees and shrubs weighted down with at least a half-inch of ice.
The park's White Garden, based on the famous Sissinghurst Castle garden of Vita Sackville-West, turned truly white with the ice, and its metal archway and dormant climbing roses nothing less than surreal.
