PAY CLOSE ATTENTION: THIS IS SNOW (dedicated to Amy and Cheryll)

 

Saturday morning I had to adjust my eyesight to make sure I was actually seeing blue skies and sunshine.  Yes a day without gray clouds and snow falling.

I caught the early morning sun rising up through the trees reflecting a golden glow on the snow from the night before as well as my beautiful little Spruce tree and my poor frozen lilac bush.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the reflection of the sun on the snow and all the beautiful little ice crystals shimmering in the sunlight…even through my suspended ice sickles. 

Mother nature at her best…

 

P.S.  Amy and Cheryll…this is what we call SNOW!

Hugs!!!

    Yes. This is quite acceptable snow. Yesterday I walked out without a coat. Today my car doors were frozen shut. I went with my attempt to look on the bright side, and sure enough, the sun had warmed the passenger side door so it wasn\’t quite as frozen as the driver side. I\’m glad nobody saw me crawling across to the driver\’s seat and getting a boot caught in the steering wheel. At least I hope they didn\’t.Peace, Doc
