Our First Snow of the Season




Yes, you're at the same blog site. What's changed is our weather. Overnight, we were graced with a light dusting of snow, and all day, the snow showers have been lovely to watch. The large snowflakes swirling in front of the windows is right out of a Thomas Kinkade landscape.

I must confess, I don't like winter. I love to garden, love to tend my herbs and roses and perennials, and I hate being cold. Snuggling in front of the fireplace with DH and our pups makes winter bearable for me. But no one can look out of the window today and say that the Earth hasn't been brushed by the hand of God.

If only it would be 60 and sunny tomorrow! (And by the way, if you click on the image, a larger version will open in a new window. ;)

Well, it gets old really fast in a downpour and a blizzard, or when DH forgets to maintain the Mosquito Magnet, but yes, we spend a lot of time outside!

Thanks for visiting, Justine, and also for your kind comments

Indeed, God's hand has graced your garden. I think He gives us winter so that we'll love Spring all the more and not take it for granted . . .LOL! We're having that 60 degree weather down here, I'll trade you!
