and of course, returned to the park. It’s just blocks from my house. And the light was low, the visibility poor. A stark and magnificent beauty in the midst of the storm.
What were the trees doing today? One day winter, one day Spring, one day freezing and dark, one day a warm sun but a chill in the wind. I wanted to see the branches outlined in snow. The dark branches highlighted with the new fallen snow. Actually, falling snow.
I was rewarded with a stunning winter scene, just before dusk.
It had started to snow while I was at school. The sky heavy and gray. Big big flakes. Melting on the street as it was 38 degrees. I drove home in a snow globe.
Oh yes, today I got out of the car, scared off a squirrel and photographed the snowy park bench and my favorite tree. The sounds muffled by the new snow, barely sticking to the road but highlighting the curved lines.

Two roads diverged….
Home to tea. Homemade spaghetti and cheese, steamed broccoli. Leftover fortune cookie and a mandarin orange. Winter.
Even though we see so many great pictures of snow, there still are some that are truly special like your bench under that favorite tree.
Love your b/w colour pics, Ruth. I could feel the cold and hear the silence of the snowy blanket all around you. I just wish I could have shared the home made spaghetti and steamed broccoli, and of course the mandarin orange. 😀
Wouldn’t that’ve lovely to share supper? Thanks Ad for your thoughtful comments.
Thank you Ad.
Gorgeous photos! We don’t have snow here where I live, and I so enjoy seeing it in photos.
Wow! Such beautiful pics. Great eye!
Thanks for stopping by on a snowy evening and leaving a comment for me. Bet those numbers multiply some more! Fun to watch the blog-o-meter click to those heights! Enjoy!
Even though we’re well into that part of Winter where snow has lost all of its charm, it can still bring a smile when you come upon a landscape like this. Beautiful photos, Ruth.
C’est absolument beau et impressionnant.
Snow makes everything look so clean. Beautiful pictures Ruth E.
These are lovely photos. Particularly 1 and 3.
Beauitiful pictures and the copy is almost like a poem. I may steal some choice phrases…:)
These photos remind me that winter can be beautiful!
Quite the contrast from Hawaii. Beautiful! So glad I’m seeing the photos, not experiencing the weather.
This is like a lovely winter Valentine, Ruth! Beautiful! Hope you shared the meal. A timely quote (probably not from Weight Watchers) says that it is better to eat Twinkies with another, than broccoli alone.
suddenly majestic crystal trees!
They are magnificent! 🙂
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I’M LATE IN REPLYING BUT THESE PHOTOS ARE SO MOVING FOR ME – I USE THEM AS FOCUS FOR MEDITATION. I JUST GET LOST (OR FOUND!) INTHE SNOWSCAPES. THANK YOU! Love, Lois
The scenes look so peaceful.
I would have to hibernate, but that bench shot is beautiful!
