SNOW
























































This morning we woke to a beautiful surprise ~ snow!! I miss snow. In Ohio, we would get lots of snow and it would last. Here, in Virginia, we don't normally get too much. So, I was very excited to see all the beautiful white!
The pictures show the front of our house (with snow), the ornaments I've put on the tree out front (with snow), one of the bushes (with snow), a few of the neighborhood mountains (with snow). LOL! I guess I wanted to be able to look back at the snow once it melts ~ do you think??
I went to a Holiday Open House this afternoon in Roanoke and on my way home, I passed the most beautiful tree. I could not believe it still had such color. AND, can you believe this hydrangea bush? STUNNING!! I would love to take that bush home!!
We were supposed to have a little neighborhood Christmas gathering in our cul-de-sac early afternoon today. That didn't happen. Maybe the weather will be better next weekend.......

Oh....the photos are beautiful! A lovely visual gift for me!!!
And yes, I'm jealous.....still waiting snow here. (I may wait until you-know-where is frozen over!)
Sometimes we go through winters of no snow what so ever. I fear this might be one......
Thanks for posting these!!! :)

XXOO!!

Beautiful photos. We have not had "snow" here at the house yet. We have it in the hills and mountains around us and a few flakes fell the other night. It is cold and they expect it to get much colder. We are getting a blast of arctic air coming down from Canada. I prefer no snow if I have to drive, but if I can just curl up by the woodstove and look out at it's beauty that is a good thing.

I love the pictures and can feel the air. We are lucky to get rain here (which we did last night).
