Yesterday we had snow, but today the sun is shining in a deep blue sky. To a Mainer, few things are as invigorating as light, fluffy snow and crisp air. I realize this might be hard to understand for those of you in warmer climates. But remember, I was born in Maine and have lived here for most of my life. To me, snow and winter go together like blueberries and muffins.
After breakfast, outside I went to take pictures. I will admit that my bare hands were chilly, but still it was fun to take in the beauty while taking pictures.
Here is a picture of our house nestled in the snow. The red makes it look festive, I know.
Out back, I always enjoy looking at the stonewall, a reminder of when the whole area behind our house was fields, not woods.
Then I turned my attention to small things, which are really my favorite subjects.
A fallen branch,
and a branch still on the tree.
My holiday wish is that winter brings us more storms like this, where the snow is light, and the power stays on.
Good things from fellow bloggers:
Barbara, from Thistles and Kiwis, notes her not-so-small pleasure of being formally recognized as a New Zealand citizen. Congratulations, Barbara!
From The Curious Introvert, The Week in Seven Photos, that features darling Harper, Baby Yoda, and a Christmas Tree made of books, one of which just happens to be my very own Library Lost.
And last, but certainly not least, from Canberra’s Green Spaces, a post that highlights a live koala in a Christmas tree, kangaroos lounging in a park, a generous gardener, an adorable dog named Charlie, and much more. What a place!
