It Snowed!

While we slept, a blanket of snow quietly covered the Palouse.

There is something to be said for the quiet calm of a first snow…

    Your farm looks so beautiful and peaceful wearing it’s first snow! There is something special about waking up and looking out the window at a blanket of white everywhere. As a child, I used to hope for snow on Thanksgiving. The late fall landscape of grasses and the last of the brown oak leaves just seemed so perfect with a white dusting while the kitchen was filled with the smells of baking turkey and pumpkin pie. In Virginia, we never had snow on Thanksgiving, but sometimes the frost was so thick and heavy, the early morn still had that glistening look to it!

      So true and I so agree! And yes, a thick frost is equally gorgeous with a beautiful glisten. Stella’s principal said in passing this morning, “Now if we could all be seven again.” The first snow does bring it out in us doesn’t it? Happy day, Winnie!

    Beautiful Pictures! I love pictures of snow! Here in West Tennessee it is truly a celebration if it snows each Winter! Winnie, I so enjoyed your beautiful memories as well!

    What a beautiful picture Mary Jane, and the girls seem to be enjoying the snow as well.
    We too woke to snow here in the Colorado mountains, but not our first snow, like our 3rd:-) Fall is gone and Winter is here, but that is fine as we love winter. It is cold here today so we have a nice fire going in the wood stove, hubby and I take turns stoking it as we go about our day.
    Thank you for always sharing such fabulous photos with us.
    Have a beautiful evening and stay warm.

    Oh, the first snow! I can’t wait–probably in the next few days. I love to wake up to the white on the ground. I usually grab the camera and head around the property to take it all in & take special pictures. Then I send them to my grandgirls, who live in southern Indiana. We will share our happy memories together about when they have visited Grandma in Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the fun they had sledding, making snowmen & snow angels!
