I woke up this morning to a strange, soft light - looked out the window - and it was SNOWING and snowing hard. It is not supposed to last so I quickly got out the camera and started taking pictures - all through the windows, as I don't want to chance slipping in the snow. I'm finding that there are some great shots through the window.
I like how I can see the snowflakes falling in these two shots. These trees are across the street from our house.
And on my deck, things are looking chilly - poor little bird on a sunflower - shiver shiver . . .
I love the shapes of the cushion-less chairs in the snow (and yes, that is a dead elephant on the chair in back)
A lacy deck table - with the small amount of snow we got it didn't cover all the holes in the design on the table.
If you need to tie up your boat - pull up to our deck and use this cleat - it comes from our son-in-law Jason's father, just perfect for a PNW deck.
These gnomes are busy trying to sweep up the snow - well one of them is - the other seems to be resting on his laurels.
Between our house and the neighbor's in back, there is an Oso Berry bush growing. It is the first to leaf out in spring - because it usually grows in the understory in the forests and you can already see the little buds getting ready to sprout. The lichen on the branch is covered with the fresh snow.
Our neighbors haven't taken down their christmas lights yet - and they leave them on day and night - but it did make a good picture of the Oso Berry bush with snow and the lights in the background.
How is your weather?
