Sometimes, though, I admit that I wish things would change a little faster. Then, perhaps, I could enjoy the beauty of snow without ever having to shovel it. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes Carol, it’s a beautiful sight down in my neck of the woods!! Be safe my friend.

I needed to type the words that kept playing though my thoughts as I watched the beautiful perfectly-formed crystal stars drifting down. And then, despite freezing fingers, I wanted to take photos that might fit. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lovely… xo LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you so much for always being so supportive and thoughtful, Bette. ❤ LikeLike Reply Had to laugh. Yes, the weather it is a changing, here also. We had a snow storm about 3 days ago. Now the sky has cleared, the snow mostly melted and I found a nice cozy spot in the backyard for some “all body” sun tanning today, January 14. Ya gotta love it! Enjoy your snow, and the portent of warmer weather which is always good and welcome in the middle of winter. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Love your comments, Sha’Tara. I can’t imagine an “all body” tan here, even in the summer. 🙂 It did take a few days for the weather to warm up here, but it shifted so quickly from from minus teens below freezing (F) to above freezing (over 32 F). I hope trees and bushes survive. Only spring will tell. LikeLike Reply Beautiful, Carol.

Hope it gradually and safely warms up without flooding. xx LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments, Annika. The words kept flowing thought my mind as I watched the snow and I couldn’t resit trying to make them float and flow like fluffy flakes. The photos were an after thought, the products of freezing fingers and creative editing. 🙂 (It has been warming up since I posted this, perhaps much too quickly. It’s gone from way below freezing to above freezing.) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Great photography LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Bernadette.
