Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Just a Little snow..........

Here we are only just beginning Winter and we have so much snow....... Well the road commission says "Hope everyone had a Christmas filled with wonder and joy! In case your "wonder" included, "I wonder how much snow we've gotten." The answer is we've measured 85 inches this season. Last year at this time, a whopping 16.5 inches. 'splains a lot!" .....sure does. Here it is not even 1st of year and my little poodles are confined to the deck. If we let them out the back garden they could walk over the fence right now.
This is the view down the road yesterday.

One guy was coming down the hill sideways but he stopped at the light sideways on, but he did stop. Then there were several trucks moving out the snow from the hospital car parks.we saw 3....

The plants at the eye doctor were looking pretty against the falling snow.

This is the guy who ended up going sideways. Little did he know that he would end up sideways at the light.........he thought he would be in the ditch haha. There were a few of those.

Ah well, just one day in Northern Michigan.........Look at the bird feeder, you can see the snow is up to the fences so the poodles wont be out there for awhile. Hope for January thaw maybe.

Looks like the wonders of fairyland have come your way. Magic the way snow transforms a landscape.
I am absolutely envious while sweltering at 38C. I miss the definite distinction between seasons and a bit of hibernations and comfort foods in winter.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

I grew up on Lake Erie in Ohio and when I was little we always had winters like this, or so it seemed.

We had a couple wonderful snow storms recently but it warmed up again and every bit of snow and ice is gone now. Today is rather mild with a cloudless blue sky- very beautiful.

But I really LIKE winter and snow, so I say bring it on! Perhaps you can send some down here in middle Ohio to me.

Hope your eye appointment went alright? Your eyes sure are seeing lovely things to snap - pics are gorgeous!

Very pretty to look at but cold to touch, that's a lot of snow.

Oh dear, the only one who would be happy with that much snow is the Corgi! You have not seen anything until you spot a Corgi making snow angels...
Foggy here, a promise of 42 degrees F for the day, and mud everywhere...
Keep warm Dear and watch the poodles!
P.S. I bet Tristen loves it out there!

You've got alot of snow like us! Well, we had the ice first, which I hate! I'd rather have just snow! I still love winter! There is just something so peaceful and calming about it! And, I find it very magical too! The only part that is bad, is the driving in it. But, if you take it easy, you shouldn't have that much problems! I love your photos so much! Glad your eye appointment went well ;o) Happy New Year ;o)

Janice, you probably laughed to yourself when I talked about snow, LOL! Ours is all gone now thanks to a warm-up and some rain. Your snow sure does look pretty, though.

Hope all went well with your appointment.

Love all of your snow pictures. Especially that rocking chair! We still have snow on the ground, but It's melted a little this past week. Temps have been quite nice lately. It sure looks cold there, but what lovely photos is makes!
