Snow is magical

1. It shows us things we didn’t know where there…

2. Can turn the ordinary into art…

3. Chronologically records recent events…

4. Creates patterns to spark imagination…

5. Is happy to rest wherever it lands…

6. Makes magical fluffy white and green flowers bloom…

7. Makes things disappear before our very eyes!

8. Paints the world with smooth transitions and covers it’s imperfections…

9. Has the ability to defy gravity…

10. Falls from heaven…

*What do you think number 4 looks like?

There’s more! Check out Snow is STILL Magical.

  1. I LOVE THIS POST! Bless you for your artistic expressions and documentation of them. I think #4 looks like a sweater Twiggy would have worn in the 60s, with a knit hat, false eyelashes and heavy eyeliner. How about you?

    See ya…through the snow in the branches, or grass, or clouds somewhere…

    • Thanks! Very cool visual of Twiggy! Similar – I was thinking of Dalmatian’s spots! …see you too : )

    • Thanks – I am sure I will hate it a little tomorrow morning when I go to shovel my driveway now that it is approaching 8 inches!

  2. I see eyes, a nose and a smile of sorts as well. I can see a snowman, a cat or a person’s face from one moment to the next. These pictures are beautiful!

  3. I saw a smiling cow! :)

    Gorgeous photography!! My favorite is #3. As for #1, LOVE how snow makes things stand out that we never noticed before. I love when a single leaf finds its way on top of the snow, how beautifully it will be displayed in contrast to the white.

    A magical post!

    • Thank! We ended up with LOTS of snow – just got in from shoveling – still beautiful though – and now with a clear sky!

    • It’s fun – except for the shoveling, although it’s good exercise, so good all around – I could use better snow boots though!

  4. FANTASTIC PHOTOS. MY FAVORITE IS #1, THE WAY IT REVEALS SOMETHING HIDDEN BEFORE, WHEN IT WAS AMID SO MUCH LIKE ITSELF. THE SNOW MADE IT SINGULAR. AND I LOVE THAT PHOTO FOR ITS SIMPLICITY. THE BRANCH IS A FOIL FOR REVEALING WHAT TO ME IS THE ESSENCE OF SNOW, ITS PURITY AND SILENCE.
    MY 2ND FAVORITE IS #3, THE INCREDIBLY STRAIGHT TIRE TRACKS, RECORDS IN TIME, BUT I PARTICULARLY LOVE #’S 7 & 8, AS WELL, WHAT AN EYE YOU HAVE!
    BUT YOUR SPIRIT, SENSITIVITY & IMAGINATION ARE EVEN MORE WONDERFUL. I SAY THIS BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU WROTE ABOUT EACH PHOTO. THAT WAS THE BEST PART, LIKE “HAPPY TO REST WHERE IT LANDS” & “FALLS FROM HEAVEN”…..YOU ARE A POET IN WORDS AND PHOTOS.
    #4 LOOKS LIKE THE OUTLINE OF A PLUMP LITTLE BIRD, MAYBE BECAUSE I LIKE BIRDS AND FLIGHT, BUT THIS ONE IS SITTING WITH ITS HEAD TUCKED DOWN FROM THE COLD.
    AND I’D LIKE TO ADD THAT #2 LOOKS LIKE THE OUTLINE OF A BELL SHAPED FLOWER WITH A SLEEPING, BUNDLED BABY AT ITS HEART.
    TAKE A LOOK . ITS THERE.
    HOW WONDERFUL HOW MUCH YOU APPRECIATE AND ENJOY YOUR WORLD. AND SORRY THIS COMMENT IS SO LONG BUT THERE WAS JUST SO MUCH I LOVED ABOUT THIS POST.

    • THANKS! We haven’t had much either probably why it seems so special to me – where we used to live sometimes we’d be buried in it from Dec to Mar and it was less fun!
