The Beauty of Winter!

 Good Morning!
    It is probably no surprise to those of you who visit here often that I love snow-well at least for a few months. So when we went for our walk yesterday I was happy to see instead of rain we were getting some big white fluffy flakes. It didn't take long to get several cm. so I was happy to get my camera......

and take a stroll around the garden.
and then a little drive to capture some of the beauty.
 I think snowmen are so cute- good job we don't have any close neighbours or I would have to wait for the little ones to come over to make one!

Back to our garden.
our home and barn

You gotta love those big fluffy snow flakes and the magic they perform!

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

Carolyn, I think the lamp post with deep red ribbon and snow is so pretty! So glad you shared some pics of your snow.

Hope we get some fluffy snow in January.

It's cold, but no snow. Always a great time for Tea.

Gorgeous!!! I think new fallen snow is so magical. I wished that it snowed where I live. But alas, it does not. So I will enjoy the magic through your photos.

It's been ages since I wandered over here! I hope you're enjoying the new year! Snow is a great start, and I'm so glad you posted these pictures. So cheerful and beautiful. Snow makes ordinary things wonderful and beautiful things magical! Your photos are fabulous, and you garden so, so beautiful!

What absolutely beautiful pictures!!! You could almost convince me to love snow too :) The only day we've had a pretty snow like that I was sick in bed all day, so I haven't been able to go out and get any pretty pictures and now it's all gone. You've inspired me to look for the lovely in snow instead of dreading it. Thanks.

Carolyn,
Just beautiful! So lovely. I love snow, too! What kind of camera are you using?

Linda said...

Carolyn, there's nothing like a fresh snowfall. All that glitters.
The snowmen were cleverly created. Thanks for sharing. It's snowing here again today. I hope we are not in for alot.

Ti abbraccio!

Such beautiful snow, but the snowmen are so artistic. You just want to hug them!

podso said...

I'm glad I came by today for such beautiful snow pictures. There's nothing like fresh fallen snow. And folks up by you certainly know how to dress a snowman! I suppose those guys stay around for awhile too! Enjoy the snow for us!

Dearest Carolyn,

Indeed, that are SNOW images! You got lucky for having enough centimeters of the white fluff.
In The Netherlands they had, but not here in the south... Who knows?
Have you checked out my January 3 Worldwide Giveaway of a 925/000 Silver Alphabet Angel? You better hurry over...

Lots of love,

Hi Carolyn
You finally got your winter wonderland and it's beautiful!
Big fluffy flakes dancing in the air surely are a wonder of nature.
Our grass is showing through now after a few mild days but we'll likely get much more snow before spring.
