December 7/ Nature Notes

My yard - yes, it IS snow!

More than a dusting but not enough to shovel...and it is melting. We are now entering the season or brown and whites with a smattering of evergreen.

Largest square: bunny tracks. The bunny was checking out the situation, me thinks.  Moving clockwise: snow on purple coneflower seed heads, icicle shaped like a Christmas stocking.  a grass (Miscanthus) seed head, dried hydrangea blossom  and turtlehead seed heads

Judy said...

Beautiful snow shots...Our snow is all melted. We've had some flurries but nothing that is sticking.

Great collage. I wish we had more snow and less brown,but I guess it will come in time.

Carver said...

Lovely shots of your snow. Very pretty on the browns.

By the way, when you were surprised by the ice on mine, I think it may have been misleading. We've had some very warm days but also some chilly ones where it's been well below freezing at night which has frozen the tops of the water in my bird baths. I dump it out and end up with the pieces of ice I photographed but it's not like we're having ice storms or sleet yet. I'm just making ice in the bird baths. Most days so far it will thaw out on its own but the birds let me know they don't want to wait on the sun to take a bath, ha.

First week in December. I guess this is going to happen, isn't it?

Lowell said...

Ahem...snow? Yikes!

No, seriously, snow is not unknown here...rare, though. However, when I tee off tomorrow morning it is supposed to be 35 degrees which is illegal in Florida! And it's only going to get up to 63. Bah, humbug!

Lowell said...

I've heard that word, "fore" before. Usually, though, I'm the one yelling it because of an errant shot.

Re the horse fever horses...not a series, but we've got a bunch of new ones so I'm going to try to photograph them...and I'll post them in the order photographed, unless I change my mind and photograph them in the order posted.

I'll quit now.

It looks as if you had a perfect amount of snow -- not enough to shovel, but enough to give some beautiful pictures.

Leora said...

Ooh, ooh, what pretty snow shots. You make the snow look like elegant drapery on nature.

Susan said...

Absolutely beautiful!!!!

Saun said...

Ha, love the bunny print :)

SandyCarlson said...

Your photos full of winter are very beautiful.

Randy said...

Nice collage!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Bunny tracks. I would not have known. Great snow shots. I hope I don't get such an opportunity.

Arija said...

So nice to see the snow dressing up your remnant garden. A dusting for starters is nice, time enough for sharpening your shovelling skills yet.

Dawn said...

Love the grass peaking through. That's what I would want to do if snowed on:)
Lovely captures!

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

I love these little collages of shots that you construct. I've tried it in the past but have never been satisfied with the results but yours is just great.

Kathy said...

I'd say it's wintertime in your neighborhood!

see you there! said...

I so enjoy looking at your snow. I wouldn't enjoy being in it but it certainly gives you the opportunity for some beautiful photos.

Lovely mosaic - I'm glad the snow is melting. White can be awfully tiring after a while;-)
The miscanthus is quite lovely. So many plants reward closer inspection:-)

VP said...

Gorgeous! Still quite hot here, I wonder when winter will come...

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

A lovely collage but I am pleased to say not snowing here, yet :)

Roan said...

Each is wonderful, but especially like the shot in the top right corner. We have a bunny family living under our storage shed. I think we'll have plenty of bunny tracks once we get some snow.

Viola said...

Look here--what we find---- *snow*!! =) Beautiful!

Icy BC said...

Beautiful pictures with just touches of snow! Our melted the same day too, but still cold and windy!

MyMaracas said...

Lovely shots. The frosting of snow adds such beauty to otherwise sad, lost things.
