For my tastes, we have had the perfect winter, cold, with patches of snow falling, but then sunshine almost immediately, so that the roads cleared quickly but the snow stayed on the ground. I love this combination of weather patterns!
Evening photo, after snowing for about four hours. This is the new deck in the front of the photo. You can see the bottle tree in the background, along with the firepit.
Still around 9:00 p.m. I love using the flash to get the snow streaks. You can see the paw prints of our little ones...or are they?? Look closely, because you will see that this is rabbit prints. They came to the back door and LOOKED IN. They had to, the prints were facing the door. No wonder our dogsons go ballistic now and then!
This is Sunday morning, around 8:00 a.m. No snowplow has touched our streets. I don't mind, though, as I think it is quite pretty. Everyone seems to be at home, not many cars were around. The solid whiteness of the streets, sidewalks and porches!
Around to the west side of the house, you can see that the snow is up around the garden gate a few inches. Love how the orange sculpture looks against the snow.
Coming back to the porch, don't you love how the snow is sticking to our neighbor's hydrangeas? Such a pretty thing. Our porch is snow covered and there won't be any porch sitting tonight!
Days end, you can see the streets have had the snow removed, and our heavy, wet snow is piled by the streets. My guess is that we will have school tomorrow in most places. The street crews did a fine job! Beautiful sunset here at New Town at Saint Charles. This is Around Our Home Monday.
