And Winter Came......

             Good morning!

                     It is a beautiful snowy winter white 
                 world here this morning as we had
            our first snowfall of the season
                overnight. I always love the first
          snowfall as it so dramatically
               changes the world around us into
one of pristine beauty!

                           So come along with me as we 
                          tour around our winter white  
                                 world. Our pond has a skim of ice
                               but also still some open water.....
            not skating time yet!


                    Love how the trees are laden.

                        Our little Boathouse in winter.

                                                                                The view from the porch.
                     Our woods in the background.
                Walking around the pond.

                          Our home and boathouse from
                the far side of the pond.

           Our Gardener's Cottage on
                the other side of our property.
                   This was shot from the upstairs

                                                                          Our home and garden in winter.
                                                                       Garden views

         I hope you enjoyed a little tour
           through the snow with me today.
         I.know that technically it is not
     winter yet, but for me winter
     starts with the first beautiful
            snowfall or at least cold weather.
                   I think there is more snow on the way
           in a couple of days ...hoping that
                     means we will have a white Christmas
this year!

Have a nice day!

HI Carolyn, it's been a while since I've commented but just had to say how glorious it all looks. I would so love to have snow fall where I live then I wouldn't mind winter so much. Truly your home looks like magic!
take care, maryann xx

So beautiful! Thanks for sharing. :-) I love snow, but we only get one or decent snowfalls a year where we live in North Carolina. And usually they are not until January or February...

I love the touches of blue in the chairs and shutters with all the white. Just beautiful!

Barbara Ayers said...

Thank you for the beautiful tour. I would love to see some snow. But in Southern California we are still very happy with the rain we had last weekend. We could use lots more! Your pictures give me so much pleasure, thanks for posting.

Magical! And so peaceful. I admit I am dreading the first snowfall here. It will not be nearly as beautiful as where you are! Thanks for sharing your world's beauty and wonder with all of us!

You must admit, the snow covered grounds make your place look like a fairy tale winter. We're still with green grass and in the mid 40's F today. Maybe December will bring us some snow too!

I never look a snow in my live.

MaryEGuad said...

So lovely! I wished I lived in a place that got snow like this. Maybe someday we can move from the rainy pacific north west (u.s.)Thank you for sharing :)

Hello Carolyn,

I hope you had a wonderful fall season.

Your photos are magnificent. It is a winter wonderland.

Thank you for bringing a smile to my face.

What a magical world it becomes when the snows fly! I love all of your photos. When I lived on property, I always loved going out after the first snow and snap snap snap went the camera.. I especially loved the fences and arbors covered with it. It always seems to quiet too! Now that I live in town, there's not much to take pictures of.. so I usually go for a walk where there are some trees and fences!

Breathtaking! SO happy for you!

It's so beautiful, Carolyn. I love the way snow transforms the landscape into something magical. How I wish for snow here on our island on the other side of Canada. Perhaps....

This is so pretty, Carolyn... like images out of a movie.

Carolyn, your lovely property is absolutely gorgeous with the new fallen snow! We are getting a tiny bit today, but mostly freezing drizzle.
Thanks for sharing!
