It has snowed almost all day. A light blustery snow that didn't amount to much while the temperature climbed over 32 degrees, though it never got much higher than that. But this evening, everything is once again covered with the light dusting of snow that has continued to accumulate. I am continuing to enjoy this unusual October snow fall, finding myself tickled by all sorts of things that would never seem to matter otherwise. I'm sharing a few photos reflecting those moments...a few of my favorite things...
took this photo last night, having hung this chime out when I knew snow
was possible. "Let it snow" is a mantra of mine whenever the moment
seems right. BTW, those tiny dots are snow falling...
is the last of my wildflowers, like the hydrangea yesterday, I love the
snow delicately sprinkled on the bloom. I especially like the tuft of
snow falling off the petal (bottom center of the photo).
new, almost completed deck, covered in snow. Actually, the part
closest to you is yesterday's snow, blown together from the wind, and
the other side is the snow from today, probably more like snow covering
ice, as what was on that side of the deck had melted. This is one of
those things I said to Johny, "be careful if you go over there because
it is going to be slick!" Let's hope I remember to heed my own advice
when I go feed the birds in the morning!
The afternoon dusting of the porch. I just love watching the snow slowly cover things. The
clump of blue green material behind the rocker is my canvas swing that
usually hangs at the end of the porch, but I took it down to eliminate
the potential 'sail' with all the wind we have been having.
yes, the song "these are a few of my favorite things" is another of my
favorite things. I still love The Sound of Music, and have been humming
this tune (amongst others from the musical) to myself all day. Between
the snow and the tune, what could be better?
you will now have one of your favorites streaming through your mind as
you bring your day to a close. What is your favorite?
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
