My first snowfall in a long time!


Okay, the white stuff has been on the ground two weeks by now, but I am just getting around to playing with the images I snapped the first two days it fell...I know it sounds trite, but it WAS rather magical that first morning. I knew there was snow outside before I even got out of bed - I recognized that "hush" the world takes on when snow is falling and the light filtering into the room was nothing short of dazzling...I jumped up and peered through the blinds at a wonderland I hadn't seen the likes of in over 20 years! I was as giddy as a little kid - I ran out and built a snowman before breakfast - I stood in the yard and tried to catch snowflakes on my tongue - I threw myself down on the ground and made a snow angel (to the supreme enjoyment of my husband, who was sure I'd finally lost it!)...and then I grabbed a camera and took a few photos of the house and yard to send to my family back in Michigan (who can't believe I left California for a state where it snows) - here are a few of my faves, enjoy!

Denise, those shots of the snow are beautiful...I really urge you to join Flickr...but I understand you probably
don't have the time...Loved reading about "catching
snowflakes" on your tongue, making "snow angels"...
you allowed your inner child to emerge, and mine
emerged reading this last entry of yours! The pix
are great; I particularly love the small tree in front
of the green wall! Great contrast! Miss YOU! SuZE-Q
