Before the thaw

  1. Wow! Gorgeous and deadly. How did your live-oak fare?

    We got snow here, just light and fluffy stuff, heaven for skiing.

  2. Susan--Both live oaks have lost some major limbs. They will look radically different and much diminished when the pruning is done.

  4. Wow, super gorgeous photos. My favorite is the second from the top... definitely captures the essence of the beautiful part about the weather this weekend.

  5. Wow, snow in Texas, none in WA. Go figure. I'm not complaining, after last year. Nice shots. Love the snow-capped birdhouse, did you make that one?

  6. I meant Wow, gorgeous photos make me sad January is almost over. I ams truly sad about your trees...I am not a tree hater or anything.

  7. What a wonderful post, Susan, though I don't think you have nearly enough snow yet. I could send you some in a large drift...

  8. Carmella--No worries, sweetie. I knew exactly what you meant.

    Eileen--It was beautiful, wasn't it. Well, except for the murderous branches.

    Karen--No, that isn't one of my creations, but it is a favorite. Snow is not all that unusual in my part of the state...it just doesn't stay around for very long.

    Jodi--Um, thanks, but I'll let you keep all that snow. We had just enough to make it fun. That's plenty.

  9. Yikes! Pretty but not what I would want to see. I hope you can get at that tree pruning soon.

  10. Totally lovely photos, just the sort of views I was admiring this morning in SC.

    I loved the heavy 'plopping' sounds as the ice crystals dropped to the ground as their edges melted.
