Snowy Memories

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American Friends.
In Canada we celebrated this holiday in October,but now I wish for you a day filled with love and laughter,family and friends.

I went back to pictures taken about a year ago.
These are scenes from on my yard in the end of November of last year.
Today we had a high of +11C or 51F.
Needless to say,the little snow we had is now gone.
I think I like the looks of last year better,it is so much prettier than dirty brown.

These light and fluffy snowflakes clung to every little seed head,piling up to make snow cones everywhere.

The last rose buds of the year were adorned with sparkling white snow flakes.


I enjoy seeing the snow accumulate on the tips of the evergreen boughs.
It looks like each tip has it's own little hat.


This picture was taken in the end of November 2010,but i don't remember having that much snow on the ground at that time.
I guess this proves that I need to take pictures just so I can remember what has happened in the past.
That is a good enough reason for me,now if only we would get a nice soft layer of snow so I could get more pictures. LOL

  18. I really like the lacy snowcones on the seed pods--so pretty. The snow does make everything look prettier, as though you are in a different place than home.

    How did your photography presentation go? You do a beautiful job photographing nature's beauty.

  19. Hi Ruth. Winter white is so beautiful and I love your photo's.Most of the times when it snowes here it is gone too soon, except for last year in December, we had so much snow that had never happened before.
    I only remember because it was our 50th anniversary and some people couldn't come to the party. We hardly ever get snow in december, mostly in February so another sighn that weather is weard everywhere.
    Have a nice weekend.

  20. I don't really care for winter, (too many gray dreary days), but the pristine pure white snow makes it hard to dislike it completely.

    Your snowy images make me almost look forward to it! :-)

  21. Hello Ruth, Your photos are so delightful. We have a little snow where we live but nothing as pretty as this.

    I really enjoyed your post and thank you for the lovely Thanksgiving wishes.

    Hugs, Jeanne
