Well, it rarely snows in the part of Georgia that Prince and I live in but yesterday? Surprise, surprise, surprise!! I thought I escaped this when we left the D.C. area. I'm not exactly a snow and cold weather type of girl, but I must say it was a lovely sight to behold.
Sadie, our new pup the Lab/Retriever mix lovin it!! She bounced, pounced, trounced and played like a kiddo until we almost had to make her come indoors.
Ellie, our 3 pound Chi drawing the line as to how far into the yard she was willing to go......which obviously wasn't very far at all!
Sadie again, playing on the deck. She kept slip-sliding away. She's a clumsy little darlin anyway and makes us laugh, laugh, laugh. Constant source of raw entertainment for Prince and I.
Roxie, our new Border Collie that we rescued last week. Notice the huge flakes of snow on her back. Whe wanted to be toweled off and go straight back indoors.
Our front yard. I love that old dairy milk container with pansy's planted in it that graces the old covered well.
A tree in our front yard covered in the white fluff. The tree was just getting her Spring buds. She'll still be okay. It wasn't that terribly cold and I don't think that it will harm her or her Spring beauty.
A back view of our deck and house covered in the fluff. It looked quite pretty.
An old urn that sits outside our front door by the walk way. It looks like it is trimmed with fur doesn't it? Faux fur of course :)
My umbrella tree frosted with snow.
One of my beautiful Forsythia trees covered in snow. I love how the beautiful yellow flowers still peek out through the snow. Forsythia reminds me of my Grandmother who called them Yellow Bell's. I am so happy that I have three nice Yellow Bell's in our yard. I call them all Nene.....
Not much of the snow stuck very well. It drizzled rain and the ground was pretty warm. There's a little left this morning and it still looks quite pretty. The kiddos in the area of course loved it. Cousin Four got to slide down a couple of hills on a float, which of course thrilled him. I wish that I had gotten to see that and I hope that Cousin Sis took a couple of snaps for us to see later. Prince and I do think it looks a little like a nice postcard, but of course we are ready for Spring. We need to get our organic herbs, peppers and veggies into the ground for our organic garden. We've got a lot of work to do around here. But, all in all, I'd say it was a nice respite and we cuddled up in front of the fire with a little hot toddy....or two.
