Let it Snow!

I was the first one up on this gray Saturday morning. I looked out the window, and what did I see? Snowflakes falling on the apple tree! And the grass... And the patio...

And the slide... Behind the playset, you can see my poor untrimmed raspberry canes are bowed over under the new, wet, very heavy snow. Don't they look sad?

And the picnic table... A very dismayed cat surveys the sea of white that he must cross to go wherever it is that cats go.

And there he goes....wherever.

And the forlorn garden... complete with neglected tomato vines still on the trellis. I guess the harvest is over. (Finally)

And the firepit... No more roasted marshmallows this year.


  1. Oh! It's so pretty! Especially sitting here on my couch 1500 miles away where there is no snow or ice.

  2. Yay, thanks for sharing. I also like to watch snow from the warmth of Las Vegas. :) My kids would appreciate it if you can keep some if it around until we come in December.

  3. Dang but I LIKE roasting marshmallows in the firepit! Plus specially when we get to wear goggles while we do that fun activity. But I like the snow lots and lots. I wonder how long that will last...

  4. I was enjoying the few flakes of snow we had today, feeling smug because we actually saw some snow in Seattle (and it is only the first of Dec.!) But it was nothing compared with your beautiful yard! Ours will be gone in the morning. I wonder if yours is there to stay... Might make Christmas travel plans a bit tricky. Anyway, beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing.

  5. can you believe how it dumped on us. the kids sure did enjoy it though.
