i WASN’T looking for winter…

but it found ME on Sunday. I had to go outside and enjoy the beauty.

Our walk in the woods was cut short as Quincy’s paws got filled with ice balls the size of pom poms. Poor guy.

ย After we got home, I went to the lake access and continued my quest until I got concerned my camera might get too wet.

Enough of that, time for spring! Margie

    • You know GB, I think most people have a love/hate relationship with snow. Nothing prettier when it is falling in big fluffy flakes, but when it affects driving and you have to shovel it….

      I love snow and am lucky I don’t have to be in rush hour when it’s slippery and traffic is horrible. I am happy you could see snow through my eyes. Thanks for coming back and hanging out for a bit!

    • Whoa! Can’t tell you how much that means coming from you Chuck! Thanks for popping in on my blog and leaving a comment. Sure glad you decided to start a blog with your amazing urban captures. Very unique. Watch out though, blogging is addicting my friend, but in an amazing way!

  1. What a beautiful snowfall! Your photos are beautiful. I especially like the mailboxes and boat. It must be hard to walk with big snowballs between your toes!

  2. Oh-ma-garsh! It looks like winter came looking and found you. Oh the beauty and the cold. I hope Quincy’s okay. Those snowballs hanging onto his fur is chilling. Bless his heart.
    Your wonderful photos makes me feel like I just walked through the middle of a snowball. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Lovely! Just lovely! I love the mailboxes (I’m assuming those are a row of peaked mailboxes) and the delicate flowers with snow resting on them.

    And poor Quincy and his tender toes. Every time I sweep up fur I threaten to shave Coe. Quincy may be next ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Oh these photos are just lovely. I love to see the winter wonderland once in awhile…..like when we travel away for a week or so, then back to warm Bermuda.
    Nice to read all the comments from all over….Switzerland, the UK, etc.
    Where are you? which country?

    • Thanks my friend! “Once in awhile” sums it up, especially this year. I hail from Michigan in the USA in which “winter wonderland” is used to describe this beautiful state in all the travelogs. I was born and raised here. I love it!

    • Quincy loves the snow! He is built really solid (we call him the Big Lebowski!)and has a really thick coat. I had a rain slicker on him just so his fur wouldn’t get too wet. But the snow was heavy, not light and fluffy, so it balled up in his paws. He stops every two seconds to bite them off when that happens. Once inside, it still took a while to melt. But it was gorgeous and he had a chance to tear around in the white stuff for a bit before the pom poms showed up.

  5. Thanks for a walk in the woods. If I could knit rubber, I’d make your dog some booties. Are those houses really mailboxes with room for a newspaper beneath?

  6. Beautiful! I LOVE the snow, wish we would get some here. It’s supposed to be in the sixties in a few days – not that i mind that either. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I agree with the first poster – poor ducks!

Thank you for letting me know you've been here!
