We woke up to a light and fluffy snowfall this morning. The kind that outlines everything in white. DH went out and took a few pictures before going to work.


So fluffy! It looks like cotton batting on the branches.



The edge of the woods. Mind you, our little “woods” is only about an acre, but it provides a wonderful place to walk and relax.


Into the woods…


There are several places to sit in the woods. This old concrete bench was in the yard when we bought this house in 1994. When we started to let the trees grow into a little woods, we moved the bench so it sits under the big pin oak that was already there.


The trees have grown so fast. Most of the first trees we let grow were probably from acorns the squirrels had hidden in the grass.


DH usually burns the tall grasses during February, but hasn’t done it yet this year. They add form and texture to the winter garden.



I can hear the snow on the roof melting and dripping already. We’re supposed to have a high of 35, so the winter scene probably won’t last long. Perhaps this will be our farewell to winter. As beautiful as winter can be, I am so ready to look at this instead! Amazing that it is out there waiting under the frozen ground and the falling snow.

    Rhonda, gorgeous photos. So glad you got out there and took some pics of the beautiful scenery in your yard. (Our weather today is suppose to be sunny and 70 degrees once the fog burns off.)

    Barb, I went back and edited the post to give DH the credit for the picture taking. He went out early and took some great pictures. I stayed inside where it was warm! ~~Rhonda 🙂
