It seems like you live in a very different part of the country from me. Although the snow is apparently coming our way this weekend. Did you make the lovely natural wreath in the last picture?

meggie said...

That snow looks so magical, just like snow should!
Hope it wont cause you difficulties.

I was given an award, & I have passed it along to you.
I love your writing. I love the way you use words.

Pauline said...

Thanks, RDS. May all your new days be spectacular too!

Barbara - when I was a child living here, this kind of snow came around Thanksgiving time and stayed until April! Yes, I did make the wreath - we have LOTS of twisty grape vines growing along the roadsides. This one is hanging in the lilac near the door and when I remember, holds bird treats for the little wilds that winter here.

Thank you, Meggie! I'm honored and pleased!

Your snow pictures are beautiful, and snow can be magical, but it does cause problems as well, so I love looking at it in pictures, but don't want any where I live! Whew, long sentence. Sorry.

Your blog is very nice. I'm enjoying it.

Holiday cheers!

I feel your snow dance vibes way over here in eastern Massachusetts. don't you love it? :>)

Pauline said...

Thanks, Renie - it's always fun to meet someone new.

Ruth - I do indeed love it! You got more than we did, I think. Are you now getting this freezing rain?

Paul said...

I don't know... those snowflakes look mighty round to me... Snowfakes? I'm originally from NH you know.

Or maybe Mass flakes really are rounder and that's why you guys always drive too fast in the snow? You don't realize that the irregular shapes they sometimes form can result in asymetrical frictional molecular realignment, which can cause skidding?

But then it can be hard telling truth from friction, or even pronouncing the distinction clearly.

Pauline said...

Pretty cool huh? Round Massachusetts snowflakes are all the rage this year. Actually I have no idea why the camera depicted them that way. A trick of the - something or other.

Lee said...

It is pretty. I do like snow...as long as I am on the warm side of the glass.

Pauline,

I love all your favorites in your list, well, as you know by now I love snow the most. But I love the sounds, the scents and everything, too. Your writing made me make a list in my mind of my favorites and I'm surprise to note we have a lot in common in our list.

I wish you well this season.
