Snowed In

We had 8 inches of snow here in NC this weekend. It was 12 degrees last night, so it is very cold. I have not even been outside in it. I did take some pictures from inside.

This one is the view across the street from me.


This is to my left down the street.


And this picture is to my right looking up the street. I live near the bottom of a hill.


I happened to notice some wonderful signs of spring in all this snow.

Blooms on my dogwood tree.

This is taken from my front window. You can see how deep the snow is by my little fencing in front of my flower garden. The sun was shining today, and the shadows were so pretty. I can tell that the snow melted a couple of inches by looking at the fencing later in the day.



And I saw another sign of spring inside today. This little shamrock was blooming beside my cold kitchen window.


Thanks for visiting and looking at my pictures.

I love snow so I'm enjoying your pictures, Cathy! This must be that horrendous storm we in the west experienced. We even had some snow in the desert!

Hugs,

Always love your pictures, Cathy. I especially enjoyed the blooming things. They give us hope. But nothing is quite as beautiful as snow.

What a treat to see your great photos. That picture of the buds covered in ice should be your next Word Filled Wednesday photo entitled HOPE! We are getting sleet and snow today in central Indiana! brrrr
