Just have to share...


Monday, December 09, 2013

One of my very good friends insists that there's nothing beautiful about ice... I just have to show here that there is - as long as you don't have to go drive in it...

The view from my porch is a little bit intimidating... we had about 4.5 inches of snow yesterday which was promptly topped off with at least 1/4 inch of freezing rain. It's a mess!


I love the look of the ice on the trees...


My japanese maple...


My poor roses...

I still think they're beautiful!

And my favorite new addition to our outside decor...


Hope you all are staying safe wherever you are! We've had crazy weather all over the US lately. I wasn't expecting to be home today but my DD's school is closed. So, I'm home with her. It's soon time to battle it out on the Wii again. She's almost done with homework. Catch you all later!

    I love ice on trees too. I don't get to see it too often so thanks a lot for this awesome display. I hope we'll get some snow when we go to our Sierra hide away later this month.

    Very pretty and exactly how I like snow...in pictures!

We're still hanging on to the 40s and this area doesn't usually get much snow I'm told (apparently last year was a fluke). But I have had to scrape my car windows the past week which is as close as I want to be to snow lol.
