mounds of snow
playtime with Angel Eyes
breathtaking winter scenes
warmer weather and a thaw
the last snow storm of the year?
I woke up to a winter wonderland in March, every twig and bough coated with snow. By this afternoon, most of the six inches of snow was melting away. Ephemeral beauty; a black and white world in color.

The storm brought you so much beauty. I don’t mind winter when it looks like that. 🙂
I agree, Robin; we just had an ice storm here that was beautiful in a similar way.
“Ephemeral beauty; a black and white world in color.” beautifully expressed. I love to see deciduous trees with snow or a really heavy frost – sparkling and twinkling away, something magical and fairytale like, I can never get enough of them! But being one to contradict herself there’s nothing better than seeing Spring emerge 🙂
Thanks for visiting, Claire – it did have a fairy tale quality about it. However, I am also ready for spring to arrive!
Like you I love walking through falling snow. Especially at twilight.
Jean, it can be one of the most beautiful experiences in the world. On the down side, I just finished chopping up the 14′ pine branch that succumbed to the snowfall and took out a major section of the redbud tree beneath it. Perhaps beauty is always combined with danger 🙂
A marvelous wonderland that your portray so well Lynn!! Beautiful!
Thank you, Mimo; it was a visual wonderland that I was fortunate to capture.
Excellent blog. You might enjoy this:
Thanks, Middle Man – now I have a new phrase to use – snow bomb! After a nice warm melt, we went back to more snow today. March – the cruelest month.

I love snow! and guess where I live? Somewhere it doesn’t snow, of course!
I am presenting you with a Liebster award. 😉
Thank you, Tangly Cottage, I am humbled by your gesture.
Look at that! WoW! My brother would be so jealous he wants to drive north one winter just to see some snow. Winter down here is full of false starts. Freezing one moment hot and muggy the the next – like is doesen’t know what it’s doing!
Rastelly, great to hear from you- I see you have a book now, can’t wait to read it! The snow is beautiful to look at, not so much fun to drive on. This was a lovely snowfall, which then politely melted 🙂
I like polite snow – sonds like a wierd indi band.
All we ever get is freezing rain. Nasty stuff, but
pretty to look at.
I think Vlad wants to get out and photograph the snow in Central Park – well, I hope he gets his wish. Great pictures. Angel eyes – aww.
I think you are right, BlueBrightly 🙂 He did get some great photos of a snow covered Central Park last year. And Angel Eyes – she likes the attention when I take her photograph and looks cute in all kinds of weather 🙂
Just beautiful, Lynn; your photographs exude such peace and loveliness, and Angel Eyes adds the perfect elegance…Joy in the melting of all this beauty into the green promises of spring! Thank you for the wonderful visual meditation.
Thanks, Kitty! Angel was in seventh heaven playing in the snow – lots of it to pounce on but the temps were fairly warm so we stayed out longer than usual. I had just as much fun as she did 🙂
Love the way the snow in this blast clings to the branches. They are still that way here this morning, but with the warming trend coming, I doubt if it lasts the day.
Thanks, Frank! I took these photos at 7 A.M. By noon, everything had fallen off of the branches and lay melting on the ground – I’m glad I didn’t wait to take the shots!
It does look quite magical, and you get the best of both worlds, the chance to enjoy it then see it thaw quickly.xxxxx
Snowbird, you are exactly right!
For a brief moment I had the impression that I’m looking outside the window – only the Angel Eyes was missing 🙂 such a wonderful way to say Adieu! to the winter.
A little deja vu? It was a lovely way to (hopefully) end the winter season. Soon we’ll both be looking out on greener scenes 🙂
Nice pictures. Snow is always so exciting and so beautiful when it first arrives, but wears off after a few hours and you have to start getting about in it.
I feel the same way, Chris; fortunately, this snow melted later in the day so I got to enjoy it 🙂
Puppy looks happy!
Storm is just starting here. Worst will be tomorrow night, they say. On the coast mostly sleet, winds etc. Inland a ft of snow.
We were lucky, Bobby, not too much damage. The snow arrived overnight, looked gorgeous for a few hours, then began to melt. Hope you don’t get hit too hard!
Lovely black and white and good attitude with so much cold. But I guess you do live with an angel.
Thanks, Carol. Yes, I do live with an angel, and she lives up to her name in every way 🙂
Really nice images, Lynn.
We ended up with 10 inches in the Chicago area but there was already some significant melting today.
Thanks, Kerry – 10″ is a lot of snow! I am just glad that it is melting so quickly; beautiful, then gone 🙂
So beautiful! We are still hoping for snow here in NYC…
Be happy to send you some 🙂
Please do! it’s supposed to be coming this way, but after so many disappointments, I have my doubts…
