I love the "checked" look of my retaining wall.
My snow ball bush looks so pretty laden with snow.
This bench shows how deep it is. I also thought it looks kind of Christmasy.
Here is part of our view. You can't see the mountains for the snow. I just love snow. It makes me hole up in my home. The only thing annoying is the puddles of water that the kids track in the house when they go in and out a thousand times a day. I gave up and put a towel next to the door. It still doesn't get used!
