Just some pretty photos....

I was going to do Wordless Wednesday a day late, but changed my mind.... and am giving you some pretty snowy photos instead..

I love how the snow piles up into little cone hats on the dried flowers that I left standing.  I always think perhaps the birds who are seed eaters might be able to get something from them if the weather is really bad and there is not much else around..
















Somewhere under this...is my birdie bath.... honest...















And.... under here..... my little 5 foot spruce...which was supposed to be a globe spruce..but appears to be a full size guy that I am trying to keep pruned to a manageable height.   I think I will have to excavate it soon and give it to somebody with a bigger yard.

































Time to start some of this in here...
































it piles up so high and then leans precariously...and then...just falls off....



















The piles are getting deeper where I have to toss it off the sidewalks....



















I love the deep purples and blues as the light fades in the evening....

This was a few days ago.... at the moment...it has jumped up from -24C to a lovely balmy +7C...and the roads are clearing and melty... more cooler weather forecast for next week...but, not nearly as bad as last week.  Wheeeee.......

Hi Vee,
Wow those are really lovely photos of the snow. I love when the snow is perfectly white that no one has stepped on it. :)
I remember when I was small, I would wake up early and look out the window to look at the snow. If no one had stepped on it, I always wanted to be the First to do it! LOL
Hugs and hope you are keeping warm!

We had some snow this morning, but it was gone by lunchtime. It's very windy tonight - definitely a night to be curled up watching tv!

Pack some of that snow up and send it here please, Vee...we've been having unbearable sauna-like days AND nights and no air-con. Btw, I would love those purples and blues cast by the snow as evening sets in too.

sigh...

I don't know my friend... spring seems so far away.

We have predictions of freezing rain tonight.... GAAAK!

Hi Vee~ Your snowy photos are so beautiful! We've got tons of it also, piled sky high and now encased in ice. For me, there's nothing as beautiful as a snowy winter...well, golden autumn is quite lovely too, but winter is what rocks my boat!...Your eye making post was so interesting, and I love your banner photo... Have a great weekend, Sweetie! xo Paulette

Hello BumbleVee. I love your photos. I am not looking forward to more cold but at least it will be sunny and I can still snowshoe. B

Oh, these are so pretty, Vee! I love the piles of snow everywhere, too! We had some melting last week and so now everything is dirty again. Soon it will snow some more and everything will be fresh and white. I love that fresh snow almost as much as I love new green leaves. I am starting to look forward to that, too. :o)

Sorry that you are having such extreme weather. The photos are beautiful and for some reason the first photo makes me think that it is Santa's sledge buried under the snow. lol! must have some imagination lol!
