And a snowy world it is today and more on the way! It is cold, but it's so beautiful to sit here at my desk and watch the snow falling, covering the trees and roofs. It looks as though it's giving my world a snowy bath!

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable
happiness there is in our lives.  C. S. Lewis

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming
gardeners who make our souls blossom.  Marcel Proust





And consequently, that is why I'm grateful to all of you! You have indeed made my soul blossom!!  Thank you!

When viewed through your window, Sylvia, the snow becomes a magic carpet of wintry white. Thanks for sharing the bright side of the lovely but slippery flakes that have hit both our parts of the world. :)

Have a great week!

Christine said...

Simply beautiful, Sylvia! We had a downpour of sleet last night then the sky cleared and the temp plummeted into the 20s. Woke up to ice everywhere. Stay warm!

NixBlog said...

Great collage of these snowy shots, Sylvia. We almost never get snow in Melbourne and we have to drive quite a distance away tot he mountains to enjoy it, so i always like snow shots!

I went to a bird sanctuary and thought of you when I tried to take bird photos.

So glad, I don't have snow now.

What a great winter collage, lovely photos

Life Ramblings said...

what a beautiful mosaic of your snowy world. stay warm and hope you get to enjoy some sunshine again.

NatureFootstep said...

a little snow is OK. It makes for some nice shot like yours. But I think that is enough. :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Love your snowy bath! The trees on the bottom left look as if they are part of fairyland! And the tree on the bottom right looks wild!

Al said...

That is indeed a beautiful world, Sylvia, and wonderful shots of it. As you know, I love snow. I bet Sam isn't begging to go out today!

Genie said...

I love the way your snowy collage turned out. I can never get my pictures to fit just right when I try to make this style. So you are having snow. That is nice. We are still waiting. It is pouring rain tonight, but it’s OK. We are warm and toasty here in the old house. I just can;t say enough good things about your post and quote today. They are both outstanding. genie

magiceye said...

Barb said...

Dear Sylvia - soon you will have more snow than we have in Breckenridge. Love that feathery tree!

Sridharan said...

You've given us a beautiful, snowy collage. Did you get all of these wonderful pictures from your desk? Betsy would sure like to have some of your snow.

You make me want to see it now. Thanks for the virtual visual treats.

Oh, what a magically soft world of snow. Enjoy your week and keep warm!

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

I am so envious of your magical world of snow, it looks glorious.

We don't get snow where I live so it is always so nice to see it through other people eyes.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I would love to sit at my desk and have your view Sylvia, a snow covered garden would be delightful for a while!

Leovi said...

Nice view, I like the mosaic covered by snow. Happy and snowy week.

Rohit Sareen said...

Thanks, and we get tired of it.

How utterly lovely your world is with the snowfall. I wish I could sit there with you and watch the drifting flakes.

I do hope things are looking up for you my friend.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Be careful out there! Nasty weather and very un-Seattle-like. (Bring back the rain). But your pictures are stunning.

Very pretty!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
