After the Storm


My footprints are like
indecipherable words.
Ink on new fallen snow.

All the evergreens look like Christmas trees after a snowfall.

Even the huge red maple on the front lawn was frosted.

Yesterday the geese left - we should have heeded their warning...

Took a walk in the black and white landscape between the snowfall and the coming rain.

Very lovely, Pauline. I came back hoping you might have posted some more. No snow here, and more sunny days than rain so far this fall/winter (which is odd, but nice) but the girls were excited as can be to find ice on the creek this morning.

Your words are perfect with your photos, Pauline, as usual! Lots of Snow here, and very cold!

Pauline said...

Thanks, Deedee - my little point and shoot takes some fine pictures

Thanks Steven - that snow is sheer ice now!

Shara - more flurries coming next week. I love being out in the snow.

Thanks, Marion - getting colder here, too!

I always hate to step on virgin snow! We hardly remember what this kind of snow looks like here in the DC area.
