First Snow


 
It was a winter wonderland.
 
 
 
Snowflakes falling on my nose and eyelashes.
 
 
Sugar coating my world.
 
So peaceful.
 
 
Did I say peaceful?
 
 I meant a frolicking, jumping, running, tumbling world.
 
If they could make snowballs, I would be in trouble.
 
 
Ling Ling watches cautiously from the sidelines.
 
 
The sun came peeking out from the bank of snow clouds
 
 
Captured in the crystals hanging from the tree
 
 
And illuminating the angels
 

Until slowly setting in the winter sky,
 
 
making the hills blush with beauty.

  5. Dearest Karen,
    Your first snow created truly a winter-wonder-land! The way you capture sun rays around your angel is telling about your heart!
    Enjoy this beauty and wishing you a Merry Christmas dear friend.

  6. Those sixth and seventh shots are LOVELY!
    I liked your choice of blue lights when I first saw them but they are definitely perfect with the snow!

    Have a wonderful Christmas Karen!

    1. Thank you, Carletta. Years ago when my sweetheart and I were dating, we always went on drives to view the Christmas lights. There was one house that we loved - it was painted dark brown and had blue lights. Every year we admired and wished and here we are! Brown house and blue lights! Thanks for stopping by on this busy week! xx

  7. How very beautiful! My favourite photo is the one from inside the window, with your Christmas tree on the left. It must be amazing to be surrounded by such beauty on a daily basis. Surely it's good for one's soul!

    I laughed at your comment about the dogs making snowballs. You would be in trouble then!

    1. Dear Christine, Yes, beautiful but dangerously wild. You know, lions and tigers and bears, oh my! he he. I am grateful for my elevated deck and two courageous watchdogs. That can't make snowballs. Thank goodness! Hope you are staying warm, too. I believe you have similar winter temps in Scotland? xx

    1. Dear Diva, yes 5 minutes is about enough for me, too. It's nice to look at, but cooooold! Thanks for visiting. xx

  10. Oh, how beautiful your world is, Karen! (Even if your furry friends frolic and leave prints!) It doesn't snow down here too often....but one can always hope.

    Your post reminds me of a Northern Exposure episode where they all went outside and celebrated the first snow with hugs and cheers of "bon hiver" (French for "have a good winter"). It's one of my favorite episodes.

    Have a merry Christmas, Karen! <3

  15. Beautiful views, Karen! I miss the view from the farm front porch! I am "snowbound" at the moment with over a foot of snow. Beautiful blanket of white. Merry Christmas!
