First Snowfall...


 "The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event."
You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?"
                                        ~JB Priestly


We are having our first snowstorm of the season in Minnesota!  About 5" fell overnight and it is supposed to snow all day.  The very heavy wet snow has made everything a fairyland...







"When it snows, you have two choices... shovel or make snow angels."

Until next time...hope you make snow angels...XO

  6. It does look pretty! I would agree with Faith that there is something magical about the 1st snowfall. I loved both of the quotes that you posted. Now go out and make some snow angels :)

  10. Oh my. The snow is so pretty, but I hate walking and driving in it. It's 66 in Ohio today, but it is going to be short-lived as a cold front is supposed to arrive this evening.

    Enjoy your weekend! La

  16. Oh, it is so beautiful! I always, always loved the trees when it snowed or after an ice storm. I miss it just a bit. It is 75 here today and sunny with a breeze. I do miss the smell of a fire and the crisp air that stings your cheeks a bit! Curl up and stay warm!

  17. Oh my gosh! I've not had the news on, so I had no idea you received all of that snow! I'm not a winter person, but I must admit that it IS pretty! Keep warm!! Great photos, btw!

  20. I really love seeing this! Your garden shots are so appealing. We may see a scene like this at most a couple of times a year, and then it all melts the next day. Love the quotes too! Jacqueline

  21. How lovely is your first snow! Somehow snow brings a sort of enchantment in its blanket of white, but also brings out the child in all of us. I can't imagine living in an area that never sees the beauty of it all.

  22. Your photos are really lovely -I would rather make snow angels :-) Here in PA we are still having lovely weather

  23. Oh no! Being Minnesota is my home town, I remember those day's. At least it happened on the weekend, because I remember how bad traffic is during the first snowfall! I got to tell you, I just don't miss it!

  24. Looks lovely and sparkly, but I don't want it falling on us quite yet! It's still Indian summer here in Ohio. But that could change in an instant....

    It's Sweet Pea's first snow and she loves it! It's so deep that she has a hard time leaping around! It's so cute to watch her!Nice photos!
    When are you going to the ideal house?

  28. Snow looks lovely. Snow is always pretty in pictures but I need to be reminded why I live in Arizona in the winter. "It is cold where it snows". Thanks for sharing your winter wonderland. I will enjoy it from afar.
