Winter Wonderland

I’m back!

Yes, it’s been over a month since I last posted. My entire family came down with a horrible case of the flu and since then, everything has been so busy that doing a post on the lovely winter we’ve been having just slipped from my mind. Now, it’s slowly getting warmer and I’m finally sitting down to write.

The first snowfall we had after the one in my last post was quite pleasant. We had about six inches of snow and I went out with my siblings once the sun came out so we could enjoy the weather and the snow.

The snow had fallen on the leaf buds, making them look like pussy willows.

I love how trees look against the sky in winter. You can see every branch.

The second snowfall was a heavy one. It snowed for two days straight and we had nine inches of snow. I realized later that I hadn’t gotten a good picture of the snow in our yard. But I got one a few days later when we went to our old house for the last time. Not the best, but just to give you an idea of how much there was…

And of course, the icicles. Probably one of my favorite parts of winter. These pictures are from the first snowfall.

Almost melted.

The second snowfall gave us the BIG icicles.

And that brings me to the end of this post. Part two will be on the last snowfall we had-it was stunning!

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!

  1. I suddenly saw an image of your house in my mind’s eye while reading this and realized that it must look so poetically cozy after a heavy snowfall!
