Snowy Scenes

We were warned and we anticipated the winter event coming our way.
We were not disappointed! Sunday morning we were wakened by screeching and squealing of our electrical appliances trying to maintain their power.

I arose from my bed at 7 AM to this awesome scene. I knew it would be a day for taking photos.

The delicate flakes piled one on top of another

The snow inched its way up and up

I hear there is snow in Paris, too...sigh...

Our little cabin in the woods would have to wait for our company until Spring.

There would be not relaxing there in weather such as this!

The snow took on an elegance
~ a tiered wedding cake, perhaps?

~maybe a crystal white chandy?

~ or a vintage remnant of bride's lace?

We were cozy and warm beside our home's hearth.

I was hoping our feathered friends had taken
refuge in one of the chalets provided just for them.

However, we found most of them enjoying this change of scenery.

We watched this little one dancing and playing in this one spot most of the day.

Some just sat serenely, taking in the beauty, unaware they added to that beauty.

Others clamored for seed and food fights ensued.

Our Miss Callie was content to sit beside windows
watching the snow fall and the feathers fly.

Gorgeous pictures! I just love snow - - - the more the better.

Looks like yours was that fluffy yet wet consistency which lets it stick to everything! Makes for amazing sights.

The Cardinal against the snow is just magnificent.
