Another Magical Snowfall



This gives, "Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton....." a whole new meaning. Dried seed pods piled with snow, became winter's cotton crop!



Oh this was a delightful surprise. I was photographing my neighbor's beautiful evergreens, and I captured the cardinals in the background!

My goodness! You've had a lotta snow. Gorgeous shots. I'm so taken with the cotton ball but then saw the longer shot with the cardinals. How magical is that? Yesterday's too, which I missed. Stay warm, Virginia.

Our snow has all gone except in the odd shady corner.

Well, duh! Cotton, of course! I'd mistaken this for snow. Silly me -:)

Lovely, V. Enjoy yourself while it is there!!

I woke up to the exact same scene this a.m....I am tired of what fluff, but it is beautiful.

I've downed my breakfast and Bibi and I are about to venture out on our arctic-like trek.

Wonderful pair of winter shots, V! If this doesn't happen again next winter maybe you'll come up to Vermont to get your snow fix.

A huge slush ice for this pod! :)

Oh my gosh! That's a crazy lot of snow.

WV: Suppa. Eat a hearty suppa. It's cold out there.

I love the ball of cotton...and the second shot, well, it's magnificent - a Xmas card with those cardinals!

Great photos. We were covered with snow in Charleston, but not as much as in B'ham.

Virgina check out my blog. I took an identical 'bowl of cotton' picture yesterday in my front yard.

Ahhhh...Mother Nature doing her thing.
Sitting in my Delta cube trying to help stranded customers is stressful but I surely thank my lucky stars that I don't work AT THE AIRPORT.

Love the cotton ball pic!!! What an extraordinary "play on pictures"...can't be a play on words...couldn't think of how to say what I'm meaning...double entendre...double play...none of them are quite right...

And I love the cardinals peeking out from the cold...beautiful pic!!!

Maya said...

That first shot is great! I also like the little spots of red the birds make. I love birds!

Louis la Vache said...

Yes! The Cardinals are a bonus!

Birdman said...

Amazing shots... looks like Maine!

Oh I LOVE that cotton boll! And the sweet cardinals against the snow are just perfect. Do you think we'll get more snow tomorrow night?

Virginia said...

Tomorrow night? ARGHHHHH I hope not. Got something fun planned. I'm off to Weather.com!

That last picture is perfect!

Our snow was here one day, gone the next, but then came the rains (NC) My sinuses are screaming "mercy! mercy!"
