But it's very pretty when it does.

Krimo said...

Lovely scenes.
Shame about the effect snow has on traffic, etc...

Kim Ayres said...

I'm quite envious. Still no snow here in SW Scotland

apprentice said...

It looks magical Pat. I love the muffling quality of snow and I still get a kick about being the first to cross snowy ground.

It looks beautiful! It snowed here yesterday too, but temperatures were too high for it to actually stick to the ground.

Eryl Shields said...

It does look lovely. The snow's all gone here now, it never lasts. I still haven't managed to make a snowman!

rosneath said...

Something and nothing here - one minute glorious sunshine and next a blizzard. None of which stayed in the city centre but when I got home my garden looked like yours ('cept it was dark, of course!)

lovely to look at, but there's a reason i live in the southeastern part of the united states, sugar! xoxo

PI said...

Queenie: have you got it too?

Krimo: yes I'm afraid once I got my photos I was happy for it to disappear. One of my sons - he's a grandfather - got his sledge out form the loft and had all and sundry staring goggle eyed at this strange object, carrying a duffle coated gentleman.

Kim: that's surprising. Maybe you'll get lucky in Canada.

PI said...

Anna: it's always pretty quiet here, but lying in bed we sort of heard the silence. Isn't there a song about a hush falling all over the world?

wontetlife: it's cold here and more snow promised.

Eryl: I'm ashamed to say I didn't venture further than the balcony.

PI said...

Roseneath: I must admit I'm glad I don't have to go out till Friday.

We've 4" of the stuff, with a load more forecast tonight!

Your yard and view is just beautiful!

Love the fact I can visit all over the world just on my computer.

I live in the Foothills of the Catalina Mountains, rain for us this weekend but snow in the Mountains. I will get to enjoy both, but no shoveling or icy roads for me.

Kath said...

It's so beautiful! We rarely get snow here, so everybody gets out in it when it does come.

scarlet-blue said...

I took loads of pics too because you never know if it's going to happen again.

Jax made a snowman in my image. It had a bottle of Kronenburg by its side.

Need I say more?

Yer garden looks lovely in't snow by't way x

PI said...

John.g: be careful on the roads.

Angry Parsnip: I love to know where people come from. Sometimes there is no indication of what country or what sex:)

Kath : I'm surprised you get it at all, but then geography wasn't my best subject.

Scarlet: did you publish them? I'll come over and look.

Manic: the snow covers a multitude of sins.

keiths ramblings said...

We are totally snowbound right now, and we don't normally get snow at all! Still, it looks pretty as your lovely photos show.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

It sure looks beautiful---from afar...lol! I must confess, I'm glad I don't have to live with snow anymore....! Pretty Pretty Pictures, my dear Pat. I've seeb quite a few "Snow" in the U.K. pictures, today....!

PI said...

Keith: I hope yo are well stocked up:)

Naomi: one thing we don't have in common: the weather:)

Indigo said...

It's gorgeous!

problemchildbride said...

It's enchanted-looking!

*simmers with envy*

Deb said...

Beautiful photo's Pat!
Also, visit my blog as you have an award to collect :-)

lom said...

just seen all the snow in Devon on the news, I know you live down that way, so do you have loads now?

PI said...

Indigo: we got more today.

Sam: good to have your around:)

Deb: thank you. I left a message and welcome to my sidebar.

PI said...

lom: yes - although we are just over the border in Somerset. It was enough to prevent me going up the hill to have coffee with the girls this morning.

Nea said...

The problem is that it's just not cold enough. Another 10 degrees colder and the damp would be gone and your snow would be powder that could just be blown away. Not that I'm wishing you colder weather, but it's how we survive six months of snow. Hope the sun comes out again soon and be careful as you go, wet snow is more slippery than colder dry snow.

PI said...

Nea: I didn't know that. Two days no snow and still it isn't really safe for we oldies to go out. A car was badly stuck in the lane yesterday. MTL has a clinic tomorrow and I have a hair appointment on Tuesday but when the milk runs out there's always the wine.

R. Sherman said...

Looks like snowy Japanese garden -- very tranquil if chilly.

Cheers.

PI said...

Randall: all gone now. We were housebound for days and I heard today a 16 year old girl broke her leg quite badly in the lane.
