snapshots of our snow day

Snow Dog!

Walkin' in a winter wonderland ....

My attention was caught by a snowflake on my coat-sleeve. It was one of those perfect little pine trees in shape, arranged around a central spangle. This little object, which, with many of its fellows, rested unmelting on my coat, so perfect and beautiful, reminded me that Nature had not lost her pristine vigor, and why should man lose heart? 

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Wow, a perfect day in beautiful photos! I love the effects of the falling snow caught by the camera.

I'm glad you (and family) were able to enjoy the winter wonderland :)

Yes! A wonderful day, my kind of day! I like Thorau's quote.
