Our First Real Snow This Winter (Ryder Was Loving It)

So fall finally gave up her grip and winter has descended.  We had our first accumulation and it was a wet sticky snow.  So, of course, I had to go out with the camera.  My 54 pound energizer bunny demanded to go as well.

Looking down the back of our yard, everything frosted and beautiful.

Looking into the tree line that separates our property from the neighbors.  Every little branch holding its bit of snow.

Standing under one of our old maples looking into the tree line that separates our property from the neighbors. Every little branch holding its bit of snow, whitening the landscape so thoroughly you can’t see our neighbors yard.

And while I was meandering and trying to enjoy the hush that such a snow brings, my four-footed tornado was running, snuffling, and demanding attention.

Zoom, zooom

Running, running, running…

Heavy enough to bring down

So wet and heavy, the snow was enough to bring boughs down to earth.

And still he ran.

And still he ran. (Ryder loves the snow.)

After about 40 minutes of the zoomies, Ryder finally wound down.

The view through the tree branches was spectacular.

  1. Oh how beautiful!!! So pretty. Wish we could have a white Christmas! Best wishes to you and your family this holiday!

    • Ooooo, no snow?! It sounds like you live some place WARM! (I wish!) 😀 Don’t envy us too much! Unfortunately, with ‘global warming’ running around we are no longer guaranteed a white Christmas. 😦 Last year it was so warm my crabapple bush bloomed in December – normal is April. And tomorrow there will be rain to wash away the snow and turn the yard into a mud pit. *sigh*

      Best wishes to you and yours as well! And I LOVE your gravatar pic! 😀

  2. Glad to see that Ryder was having fun. No snow for me though. It was 76 today. Hope you guys are enjoying the weather 😛
