Some Winter Pictures

Woke up to snow falling this morning and a lovely winter wonderland.

It made an interesting pattern in the bare dogwood branches. It's amazing what even an inch of snow will do to the landscape, although after it stopped snowing there was probably almost 2 inches.

And on the trampoline.

Nandina? Something like that! The snow was already melting here.

Now this picture below has an interesting history! The two trees in the foreground are in full cherry blossom glory while the tree in the field in the background, at the same time as the buds, WAS in full orange autumn glory -- about two weeks ago!! I notified the hubby of this unusual sight but he failed to see a good photo here, so, because I didn't actually stop and take the photo myself during that time, the opportunity was sadly missed. Hence now, the snow on the blossoming cherry trees, but no brilliant orangey yellow tree in the background. BUT, the redeeming factor is the snow on the the enjoy what is but sadly not what could have been!!

Another sad oversight, due to the slight rush to get to church earlier than usual for a certain Adventurer event, the Com-Cam picture was missed! So kind hubby took it several hours later which meant patches of ground showing through already! Shucks.

Here are some Adventurer photos of the day.
Marching in. GET those hands out of the pockets, boys!!

Taking up the offering. (H and B are in the photo right)

The snow didn't stop there being a full church this morning. Fortunately the roads were clear and no ice, thankfully. Here's what it looked like mid-morning.

Hope you all had as wonderful a Sabbath as we had!
