Where did the beautiful, warm, 60 degree temperatures of Monday go????
Reality smacked us - hard - as we woke to typical January weather this morning.
(typical for New England, anyhow!)
Everywhere Baby and I looked was white, white, and more white.
Whereas my snowman flag looked ridiculous on Monday when temps soared into the low 60's...
...he looked right at home today in the midst of the snowy white landscape.
(Don't you love this whimsical little guy? My talented friend, Jeri of Fiddlestix, is the artist!)
I see the plow is working up at the corner. I'm sure he'll be heading this way before too long.
And within minutes he had.
The view out back was much the same.
As much as I'm not a fan of winter, even I can appreciate the beauty of freshly fallen snow.
The backyard looks like a crystal fairyland with the heavy snow clinging to every branch.
Our new gate and fence are experiencing their first winter.
How I love my little heart gate, no matter what the season.
Snow clung to the diamond pattern of the deck chairs.
And look who heard me taking pictures and ventured over to see if I had my peanut basket
(which I did, of course, much to Sammy's delight!)
This is what Mr. J looks like whenever he comes in from the snow. He may be 12, but he's a kid at heart and loves to burrow his head and roll in it.
Stay warm, everyone!!!!
