Yesterday, we had our first real snowfall, three inches of light, fluffy snow. So easy to clean that Clif didn’t even need to use Little Green, our trusty snow thrower. A shovel did the trick.
Everything is pretty and fresh after a snowfall. Here are some pictures from the front yard.
Here is one of our backyard by the woods.
And last night when I heard the snow plow go by, it was the real thing, not a phantom sound the way it had been a month earlier.
Winter is here.

Not quite enough snow for Clif’s measuring stick yet? Winter has really arrived where you are.
March is the month for snow-gauge Clif as he measures the melting snow.
I was wondering about Clif’s snow measuring stick as well.
Is he using it yet? Inquiring minds like to know. 😀
Snow-gauge Clif will make his appearance in March as he measures the melting snow. 😉
I’m chuckling as I read this. I went out this morning to take pics of my 2 or so inches of snow. Can’t exactly tell what your flowers are, but mine are similar: sedum, flox and laurel in the snow. Of course, I haven’t got around to posting them yet! 😉
Well, we don’t live that far apart.
What a beautiful fresh blanket of snow Laurie and we look forward to the return of snow-gauge Clif! 😀☃️

It looks beautiful in Maine, and I’m very envious. Still waiting for the first measurable snow of the season! ❄❄❄
Hope snow comes to you soon.
Thank you, Laurie, I hope so too.
Oh dear. I’m just NOT ready for Winter! You’ve captured some of its stark beauty, but I find myself shivering just looking at all that snow!
Seems normal to us. 😉
For me, there’s nothing more beautiful than a fresh carpeting of snow. Bring it on!
A beautiful time of year.
Wow – Already! Here you go!
Snow is so beautiful–especially when you don’t have to be anywhere. We so rarely get any, that I will live vicariously through your blog…
Happy to oblige with the snowy pictures!
Glad it light and fluffy! It turns our whole world into a Christmas card. 🙂
Indeed it does!
The first snowfall is always a thrill, the thirtieth maybe not so much.
Beautiful mist 👌🌫️ happy winter ❄️🎄
So welcome 🌷🙏
It really is beautiful. I’m so glad it was light and fluffy, and not more slush. Your snow wouldn’t have a chance here; our high today was 80 degrees, and I was sweating! Your photos are delightful. I especially enjoyed seeing the snow ‘hats’ and the single leaf on its snowy bed.
The snow hats are fun, aren’t they? Hope cooler weather comes your way. But not too cold!
Oh, my, it was over 80F here today! Waiting for the other shoe to drop! An Alberta Express?
Hope no nasty surprises come your way.
Lovely scenery for me, currently sweltering even though it is not even mid-morning yet.
Sounds like it’s going to be a hot one.
Well, that snow makes quite a statement.
It surely does. Thanks, Susan.
And so it begins. Love the poof of snow on the plants and the light on the oak leaf.
Yes, yes! Many thanks.
Thank you for the smile when I read ‘snow plow going by…winter is here.’ That is truly how we New Englanders know the season as changed. 🙂
And northern woman that I am, I love the sound of the snow plow. To me, it’s comforting.
Nice photos of a pretty snow.
You are welcome!
Lovely pictures, especially Clif cleverly composed
Thanks, Derrick. Caught Clif in action.
Snow and sunshine! What a beautiful combination. I especially appreciated the photo of your backyard, which I’ve enjoyed evolving through the seasons. I can’t wait for Virginia’s blanket . . . in February.
Thanks, Carol Ann. A very beautiful combination.
I love the way that snow makes everything magical – even not very nice things like nettles or dustbins! (Not that you have those in your garden)
No nettles or dustbins in my garden. 😉
I am sure there aren’t – but there are plenty in mine!
Goodness! I missed the opportunity to say, “Winter is coming …” It has well and truly arrived in Winthrop, ME.
Alas, the rain came and took away all the snow. Sigh.
Goodness! I didn’t realise that you get rain in winter!
Only in recent years. Hate it!
Fresh snow is always so pretty
Just looking at those pictures makes me shiver. Much better to view from the safety of my laptop than to be out and about in conditions like that. Enjoy!
So true! Fortunately, Clif and I are at a time in our lives when we do not have go out in stormy weather.
Always love the first snowfall and beautiful photos of fluffy snow!!❄️🙂
Looks so lovely. We are back to winds and rains.
Same here, unfortunately, since that piece was posted.
How beautiful! Glad it was the fluffy kind-I wish it would snow here . . .but the almanac says chances are slim . . .Again! x Michele
Beautiful! I love the snow globes. I know it has been snowing overnight here because of the depths of the silence when I wake up. It’s a rare treat for us.
Beautifully put. Yes, the snow brings a certain kind of silence. Glad you got to experience the rare treat.
