Photohunters: Covered


The photohunters theme this week is covered. Last fall on a visit to colonial Williamsburg, VA, I saw a covered carriage.

I also saw an uncovered carriage during the same vacation.

My deck wall is currently covered in new spring growth.

For comparison, a short month ago, I took pictures of snow falling one evening in early March and there was almost no cover of plants on the deck wall. The few leaves below are old ones that never fell off but are now covered by new leaves.

Photohunters post their links beginning Saturday mornings at the Photohunters home.

I love the covered wagon photo. I enjoyed very much my ten day visit to Williamsburg, unfortunately before my digital camera days!

Have a good weekend Carver.

It's wonderful how things can change in such a short time. It won't be long until my Tree Paeony will bloom and then I know summer is not long off!

Perfect photos to show covered... I should have done my azaleas covered in honeysuckle vines.. LOL
I don't know how we'll ever get that mess cleaned out. Loved your carriages.

Wondered if anyone would have pictures of a covered wagon. So far, haven't seen one on my Photo Hunt but you've come close with the covered carriage! :)

Wow...already covered! The spring is rapid where you live. I don´t have any green leaves yet! And my Redbud is still in the orangerie - waiting for frostfree nights.
I love the covered carriage - very romantic!
I wish you a great weekend.
