Another Friday, another snowy photo. This one is from my office window at the COA, not far at all from those pine trees I showed you last week. I took it on Wednesday; it had snowed steadily all morning but right around lunch time the snow stopped and the skies brightened. I do love when the snow is freshly fallen and clinging to the branches like it is in this photo . . . not so much when it’s on the roads.
Cheers to a weekend of beauty and snow free roads, especially if you’re out there doing Christmas errands!
Such a pretty shot! I had snow on my drive into work on Wednesday…with clear roads…and it was gorgeous!
I always think of Mary Oliver when it snows like that:
Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
I am now going to be wishing for a bit of snowfall so I can ponder the Mary Oliver poem that Bonny shared! Have a great weekend! (and my the roads be snow and ice free!)
Another beautiful photo, Carole. I love snow when I don’t have to get out in it, but not so much when I am sliding down the road. I lived in the mountains when I was younger, and I always got excited and saw it as a challenge, not so much now. I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Beautiful! As long as the power stays on and I have chocolate and booze, I love a good, wet snow that clings to everything and looks so pretty.
Love it-no snow here-just rain.
What Bonny said! Mary Oliver always has something beautiful to say about nature.
I love fresh snow! The winter landscape is so dreary without it . . .

My favorite thing about snow is right after it ends, when it sits on every branch and leaf on every tree, just like this. Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot!
Reading this post after seeing today’s offers such a lesson in how quickly things can change. Peace shattered in a brief moment. Let’s hold each other close and say thank you for the gift of love and friendship. Hugs, my friend.
