I Drove Home in a Snow Globe

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.

Home to tea.  Homemade spaghetti and cheese,  steamed broccoli.  Leftover fortune cookie and a mandarin orange. Winter.

  1. 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. 😀

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
