Snow days

Yesterday, only a frosting:

snow on ice

On the holly leaves on my walk…

snow on holly

The crisp, brown dead leaves contrast with the green living ones…


But today… what a difference a day can make!  At the back of my house:

garden in snow

And at the front:

front steps in snow

All around, evidence of activity normally invisible:

footsteps in snow

I don’t THINK my cat got this bird… he is too old to bother these days…

birds' footprints in snow

The boys had a good fight last night:

snowball on step 

But this wasn’t theirs – I passed HIM on my walk today…

    Goodness those steps look treacherous!
    Isn’t it amazing the way snowmen appear everywhere! They look like little aliens on the landscape.
    I love your photos.

    I like your description of evidence of activity normally invisible. I hadn’t thought of it in quite those terms before!

    How fun, Liz!! I love the snow in the cupped brown leaves, right along side of the green leaves!

    LOL – your pix make it look like a treat. Snow is wonderful if you never have to leave your house.
