From the 60's to this in two days flat!

 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!!!!

That looks very very pretty - (and love the Snowman flag!) but stay warm. We have a hard frost here in our little part of England, but no snow. Yet. Minerva x

It has been in the high 70's here but the rain is moving in. Please send me some snow. I thought I was following you but I am NOW. hugs, olive

Oh, it looks so pretty! And the critters are certainly enjoying it. As long as the heat and electricity stay on, it's nice to look out and admire the tranquil view.

We've been getting soaked with rain. Well over 6 inches now in the past 2-3 days. And we may finally get some snow tonight or tomorrow!

Your snow looks so pretty and I love the snowman flag. Mr. J looks adorable!

Hi Donna,
Aren't these the worst days of winter? It's nice to see the sun stay up a touch longer but the cold is awful. Once mid-february rolls around we'll be on an upswing. I hope!
Baby is adorable, as always. She looks beautiful against the winter white. And my Lily can totally relate to Mr. J's love of the snow. Stay warm!

We have such crazy weather. I do love a good snowstorm. It is so beautiful right after the snow falls. I could look at it all day.
