First Snow of 2014!



Look what we woke to this morning!

Isn't it gorgeous?









Here's the back yard -
 all I did was simply open our back door
to take this pic.



















It was so warm last week,
 see the forming buds on the bush below? 

Yikes.









By the time I took a pic
 of the front yard it was snowing again.

And the plows had just come through - sure wish I'd have been faster, just moments
before it was pristine and untouched, except for a few tracks on the cul-de-sac of
tires going to work, like my hubs'.


Somehow my Harvest Blessings mailbox flag
 looks out of place now.
It's funny that it and the remaining leaves
 of the little tree in front are the only real bits of color.











Winter leaf-bare trees with clinging snow is a sight to behold.




















As always, thank you for your visit!

  3. Oh boy! Doesn't it look pretty? I love the second photo down, very tranquil looking. It's been snowing all day here but that's OK, I've put out the winter decor and have the Christmas tunes cranked.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Michele.

  7. Now that's snow ... something I haven't seen in 30+ years ... living on the Gulf Coast has its disadvantages or advantages! It is beautiful. Hope you stay warm.

  9. You have quite a bit of snow. Isn't it pretty all fluffy, light, and white? We had our first blast of snow, less than an inch, but it has been bloody cold. I guess winter is on. Beautiful photos.

  12. Oh my goodness, Michele, these photos are magical- a snowy world! We have such glaring sun so much of the time that your neighborhood looks enchanting! Love your candid photos :)

  13. The snow is very beautiful! Seems like life rolls around so fast we are shocked when the seasons change.

    It is cold here too and we had our first hard freeze. I think tonight will get down to 29. For the deep south that is cold. I remember Thanksgivings as a child with lots of ice everywhere.

    I loved your photos. You really received a heavy snowfall. How many inches?

  14. I was really hoping they were going to be wrong, Michele. It's way too early for snow and this cold freeze for me!

  15. Beautiful!! I love those kind of snowfalls that just lace every tree branch. The view out the back with all the evergreens is so pretty.
    We have snow, too, and more coming today. I'm still without a car for a couple more weeks, so I really am fine with it, inside with a fire going :) Have a wonderful day Michele!

  17. Oh, how beautiful! You know, don't you, that this much snow would absolutely paralyze us here in Georgia!

  18. That's a lot of snow!!! It's really beautiful, though. Autumn is slowly leaving Virginia, but winter is not quite here yet.
