Winter Wonderland

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy finally got her perfect snow last Tuesday.  Big, fluffy flakes came down during the day and clung to the trees and bushes.  I'm not a big fan of snow, but even I had to admit that for a few hours our yard was transformed into a winter wonderland.

I will admit to the beauty it holds, I just don't want to see it up close and personal!

Fantastic shot George, lovely to see the white stuff clinging to the trees. Altho, I hope it doesn't come here.
Sure is A Winter Wonderland

Foto maravilhosa, George!!!
A neve é uma das melhores memórias da minha infância, no Nordeste Transmontano, em Portugal.
Saudações, deste cantinho à beira-mar plantado!

Snow can truly create some gorgeous sights, but if it is okay, just keep it up there. I saw in the paper where you were getting it.

I love snow but only if you can enjoy it at home.
I remember around Christmas time our street was covered in tons of snow and the trees were heavy and then we had this sorta drizzle which made the top a little hard but it glistened under the moonlight and it was so peaceful.
You would go outside and stand there just enjoying the moment.
Nothing like it.

That is beautiful but I'm waiting to see how long it is before Betsy is complaining about not getting any pretty snows. :) :)

Linda said...

Lovely! Our snow has been pretty but now I'm pretty tired of it.

Lynda said...

You are one of the reasons we need photographers - - - to show us the beauty of this white "inconvenience"!

It is a beautiful shot. We lost most of our snow during warming times but still have now severe cold and the trees don't look as good as yours.

Small City Scenes said...

Yes it looks pretty for a few hours then it should all go away and let the sun shine again. MB

Jeevan said...

Sounds quite wonderful! A change is needed... for me snows are still dream.

Janie said...

Ah, that is beautiful. I love the snow when it's falling. Maybe not so much when it's time to clear the driveway or drive on icy roads!

Craver Vii said...

I love it! A lot of people have been complaining about the cold, and I understand that it can be difficult... but it also means that we're not bothered by mosquitoes! And that is something I can appreciate. :-D

Thanks for sharing the winter wonderland.

Our snow is finally melting, after a couple of warmer days. Pretty snowy scene, George!

Lorri M. said...

Such a stunning photo. I love how the snow clings to the bare branches, giving the tree an almost surreal look.

Cheqna said...

Snow at the tree branches made it look really lovely.

But hope it stays nice and "normal" winter time.

Amelia said...
