Say It Isn't Snow!!

On Sunday night after returning home from Washington, D.C.,
the hubs and I were curious about Monday's weather.
We watched our local station,
The Weather Channel...
and I checked the weather app on my phone.
All three agreed, mostly cloudy, high around 40 degrees.
 
At 8 a.m., much to my delight, it started to snow.
Big, white beautiful flakes fell from the sky...
they coated every single branch on every single tree.
 
 It was a Winter Wonderland

 This was the only hydrangea that bloomed this past summer,
and I was waiting for this very moment to photograph it.

 Big snowflakes...

 white powdery "fluff"...

 teeny, tiny pinecones...

 and big bold evergreens, make for a gorgeous wintery view!!
 
I hung out the window, most of the day,
taking pictures of my feathered friends.
More on that tomorrow!!

  21. Lucky lucky you! We have only had a dusting this year. I would love to have a nice snow fall, but it needs to wait until I get all my running around accomplished. A bit of snow and we shut down. Enjoy your winter wonderland! Hugs!
