winter magic

We have had more snowfalls this year than in many years, about 5 so far. Today's was very pretty, one picture looking out the front windows, another looking down the driveway. (click picture to see the snow falling)
Compare it to my fall driveway picture here.


With scent of wood smoke in the air
and cupboards filled with some to share,
my heart’s at ease as I await
for Winter’s grip to hold my gate.

I dread the wind, the snow and cold.
It wreaks such havoc when you’re old
and hampers all that I had planned,
yet oh the spectacle is grand.

I loved your pictures! It looks like you live in my kind of location. Everything looks so beautiful, clean & pure with a fresh fallen snow. The poem was also lovely.

You're right...this year we have had more snow, but you have had even more than us...up here above you.

I regonized your driveway right off - my how the seasons change the views you have. Nice poem.

I love your winter photos. I am amazed that Georgia in (what I think of as) the Sunny South has so much snow! It must be your elevation. What a deck you have. Can I come and sit there sometime??? (laughing) Enjoy the snow!
