IMAGES of ICE STORM '98


Although devastating, an ice storm can bring a special type of beauty with it...These are scenes captured on the morning after we were hit by both freezing rain and a light layer of snow. Our property faces South-SouthEast at the 1000 foot level, about 22 miles SW of Portland, Oregon.


Our Rottweilers exploring the driveway.... and Miscanthus, Spiraea and Agapanthus as ice sculpture.



The grape pergola dressed in icicles....Eastern White Pine, Fir and Sequoia encased in ice




White Birch and Katsura wearing lacey dress....a bluebird house turned jailhouse! The vineyard fades into the mist and the ghost of an ancient Douglas Fir looms in the distance.



The rose garden pergolas are fringed with ice and lingering rose leaves have icy tails
