Snow outlining maple tree
A snow-covered bush
More snow-covered bushes
This is an outdoor fireplace. I like the way the snow outlines the bricks.
Icicles dripping off a roof line.
Snow, snow … everywhere you look.
Oh, my gosh. Somehow I still can’t get my mind around the fact that winter has come, and the snow with it. Of course, I just looked at the calendar and realized that Christmas is a week from today. Huh? How did that happen? I really like the snow-outlined brick photo. That’s a creative shot — very nice!
I suspect you were otherwise occupied with your move, Linda, so winter just sneaked up on you. It’s hard to miss five inches of snow though! We haven’t even reached the freezing mark in several days, and I expect this mess will hang around until we do. Sigh. But it’s kind of pretty when it first drops, isn’t it?!
Debbie, I am sitting here sipping my morning coffee and SMILING 🙂 as I look at these beautiful photographs! And I’m also envious because we have yet to get any snow this year. Supposedly we are getting some this weekend, which I’m eagerly awaiting. I have off on Sunday, so I’m hoping we get it then so that I can go out and enjoy it (roll in it).
I especially love the photo of the snow outlining the bricks on the outdoor fireplace. That is so cool-looking! You see, this is one of the things I love about snow, the way it artistically drapes everything and makes them look like they’re dripped in frosty white icing!
Thanks so much for sharing my favorite thing about winter, my friend. Enjoyed! x
Ron, since you love snow so much, you wouldn’t consider it mean of me when I say I wish y’all had this and not us, right?!!
We got 5 inches between Sunday and Monday. The angle of the sun is so low that we don’t get much melting either … and what does melt refreezes overnight. Our schools were closed a couple of days, and things pretty much came to a standstill. Pity the poor people who haven’t started their Christmas shopping!
But you’ve made a good point — the snow does “artistically” drape everything and give the impression of stuff dipped “in frosty white icing!” Hope you’ll get some this weekend — I’d like to enjoy it from the comfort of inside, ha! xx
Thank you, John. Bet it makes your back ache, just remembering how much “fun” shoveling can be!
Oh, I don’t know whether to be jealous or not! Snow and ice always look so lovely that I look forward to them every year… until they arrive, when I wonder what I was thinking! 😉 Stay warm!
HaHa! I rather enjoy a White Christmas — which we seldom get! — but I want it all gone by the day after New Year’s. When they elect me Queen, it shall be my decree! Until then, I’ll have to endure, likely with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book!
You, way south of us, got lots more snow than we did! We had a dusting, just enough for Katie to be happy and not so much as to need the snowblower. Win win.
I noticed that, Dawn. Lucky you! It was pretty when it fell (and before the trucks smushed it down to ice), but it’s just bothersome now. Even Dallas is finding it a challenge. He hates getting nickel-sized snowballs stuck between his toes!
Like William Blake said “In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy”. Thank you for the photos that help us enjoy the beauty of winter!
Hi, and Welcome! What a great quote — reminds us to take each season in the spirit in which it arrives.
Thank you 🙂 It’s in that spirit that I (try to 😉 ) never complain about getting soaked in the rain.
