Hoorah! Snow Day
This morning big, wet, beautiful snowflakes swirled down covering the landscape in a fresh coat of sparkling white. I couldn't wait to get out in it. Jilly and I headed to the park enjoying all the sights and sounds of our little winter wonderland.
Shuffling softly over the bridge at the park and through the woods.
Jilly patiently waiting for me to quit taking pictures and move on.
Discovering spring blooms covered in snow.
And warm weather palms frosted, too.
Outdoor art covered with nature's medium: Summer in winter.
And lilies in snow.
Hearing the shouts of children throwing snowballs, pushing sleds and enjoying their 'snow' day. No one's on the swing, yet.
Back at home for fresh, warm homemade bread.
And chicken noodle soup.
Alas, it all melted away by mid-day, but it was a beautiful snow day anyway!
