Snow Beauty

Just when I'm about ready to break out my Easter Bonnet,:)
here comes our one real snow storm of the year!

Rose Garden in the Snow


Winter Snow Detail

"Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the withered air
Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden's end.
The sled and traveler stopped, the courier's feet
Delayed, all friends shut out, and housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of storm."

~Ralf Waldo Emerson~
