The Beauty of Winter

Hello everyone,

I am finally back after a long break.
I hope you are still here with me!
I have lots of excuses for my long
break including no excess to my
photos on our desktop but we now
have a new monitor and I am good
to go.

A couple of weeks ago we had a surprise early snow so
of course I went out to enjoy the beauty with my camera.

I love when we get an early snow before the pond freezes over
as you get some reflection in the water.

We still had leaves on the trees and shrubs.

For early in November it was pretty good
cover but it was all gone a couple of days later.

We  have been busy getting outdoor chores done
and then I moved on to Christmas decorating so
now we can enjoy the long evenings with lots
of twinkling lights etc.

How about you are you getting ready for Christmas?

Take care,

BEAUTIFUL pics! SO pretty. I will be keeping my decorating to mostly outside on the porch as we have relocated and the COTTAGE is crammed full of boxes at the present. Can't wait to see your Christmas decorating! All the best, ~d in Kansas on the prairie

Hello Carolyn,

Everything looks so beautiful! I’m glad that you still here! I love your beautiful blog! I went back to college, so I have very little free time for blogging.

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous Winter Wonderland with us!

These photos are gorgeous, truly a winter wonderland. I am so pleased that you are back. I have really missed you. We had a snowstorm as well,but not quite as magical as yours. Now that Thanksgiving has passed we are beginning to decorate for Christmas. It is always a magical time of year. Hope your Christmas is blessed and beautiful.
