Silent And Soft



We awoke to another snowfall this morning.
Beautiful to look at, but I have the suspicion folks are really looking for a few constant days of sunshine right about now. 









 


Out of the cloud-folds of her garment shaken,
Over the woodlands, brown and bare
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.

~~By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.~~

I like the geese and cardinal and the snowy scenery.

The snow can be beautiful, but it's time for it to leave now. Is that little building in the last photo your garden shed? It's such a pretty picture. Stay warm my friend, and hopefully Spring is not very far off. Hugs, Edna B.

We had another round of snow this morning as well. They say it will be our last this year. Stay inside and enjoy the view.

You have lovely photos! The weatherman teases us with the forecast; snow just doesn’t make it over the Plateau for us here in this valley. Our trace of snow this morning had disappeared within three hours.

What a beautiful wonderland of snow, punctuated by the scarlet
of that eye-catching cardinal. One can almost feel the snugness of your home while viewing the chilly outdoors.
Wonderful photos.

How beautiful and sometimes lonely snow seems to paint a winter day. Here, we would just appreciate more sunshine and warmth to thaw out the ice :(

I am not use to seeing your wonderful gardens with green colors everywhere. I am anxious for spring and I will follow you as your area will be warm and green soon.
