Not what they seem?


When I first came upon this scene I found it strangely disturbing - it took me a moment to realize that these hooded figures were actually evergreens covered to protect them from snow and ice.

Oh my, these do look sinister! You photographed them well to illustrate their "nature."

That is quite an image.

I guess you thought they were a row of hooded KKKers ready to lynch the slugs crawling among the pacasandra.

I didn't know evergreens needed protection. It is a good find for a photo anyway.

I agree. Actually, I was rather "spooked" by them. But then was comforted when I thought you might decide they'd be a good photo shot for your blog.
Thank you!

They are hooded to protect them from deer...not the weather...Mother Nature already designed them to endure whatever she hands out...but those pesky deer....

Anon, are you sure? I guess there are more choices in summer, but I've seen other kinds of evergreens (rhododendrons, for example) wrapped in burlap to protect from snow, ice, and the road salt sprayed up by snowplows, so I figured this was the same (since they're planted along the street.)

Terry, yes, KKKers or prisoners at Abu Ghraib!
