Snow Day!

Even a dusting of the white stuff is magical when you're not used to seeing it...

Winter giveth the fields, and the trees so old,
Their beards of icicles and snow...
~Charles duc d’OrlĂ©ans, translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The last one is from the next day. 
Since temperatures didn't get above freezing for a couple of days, the "snow" lingered in some spots.

By the third day it was gone...just a memory as we shed jackets and enjoyed 70 degree temps.

Texas, have I told you lately that I love you?


  1. yes! You make it look like visiting magic.
    even your pupster seems to think it's special.

  2. we have not seen nary a flake this winter again.

  3. You keep all that white stuff up your way. I don't want any of it!

  4. I'm happy for you -- send some this way, will ya? :)

  5. We got a bit more than a dusting today, but for the first time in several weeks, the temperature rose above 10 degrees!
    It felt a bit like spring. :-)

  6. Is that the stone pathway your husband's been working on? Beautiful! Love the light dusting. We got some, too, but only in the flower beds.

  7. Barbara, your photos are gorgeous!

  8. Yup - snow is very pretty....for the first day or two. ;)
    Lovely shots Barbara!
    xo Catherine

  9. I have thigh-high snow for you! Come get all you like. In exchange, I'll have some of that 70F weather, please. Lovely pics.. one and all.

  10. Some nice shots. It hasn't snowed here yet in England.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  11. Such pretty photos! Over here, that dusting would be called spring! ;-)

  12. Yes, we got the same "sprinkling" here in Waco as well....and YES! Thank God for Texas!Hahaaa

  13. we got a bit more than a crust...
    we have drifts up to 16 inches...
    its so magical though...
    i am loving it...
