The First Snow of A New Year!
Happy 2013, Dear Friends!
The first snow of the New Year fell last night. I always love the look of fresh snowflakes as they float through the clear air down to the ground and all around, and catch on every spray and limb and twig. Reminds me of the perfect, sparkly snow on Christmas cards… I wanted to fully appreciate the brand new snow of a brand new year, and headed to our patio with camera in hand to try and capture the moment. I didn’t use a fancy shmancy camera with all the fandangles and flashes. And, inspite of not having a proper night flash, I do like how they turned out…Kind of magical. Spiritual. The stuff for snow angels…
I love when the garden furniture is clothed in snow, how its lines are made more distinct. Intricate. I especially love seeing the snow pattern on the seat of the iron bench, and that cast beneath it compliments of the porch light. Hmmm…makes me hungry for waffles. SMILE.
At first, I was being careful to tread carefully so as not to disturb the gentle carpet of soft white beneath my feet. But, alas, someone came behind who was more heavy-footed than me and seemingly turned on the vacuum! Lol
Look closely and you’ll see a fresh pineapple nestled within the flower box above…
‘Garden child’ looks so pretty on her ‘green’ cushion. A sweet little fairy sits in the palms of her hands. I wonder what they are whispering to one another…Can children really understand the language of faeries? You can, too, if you only believe…
The silhouette of the rusty iron angel against the night sky is magical…
“Kindness is like snow. It beautifies everything it covers.” Anonymous
Angel is kneeling inside a wreath of spruce, boxwood and holly beneath a flower box piled with cedar, magnolia and pine cones…
I’m am always excited that you come by to visit and just want to let you know how much I appreciate your beautiful comments, both on the blog and in emails, and for letting me share with you my tiny corner of the world this past year. I hope this fresh new year is a special one for you and that all your dreams come true…
I am partying at Vintage Inspiration, Mop It Up Monday, Make the Scene Monday, Feathered Nest Friday, Show and Tell Friday, Fabulously Creative Friday, Saturday Show Off, Sundae Scoop and Overflowing with Creativity.
