I couldn't resist...

... the winter splendor...

... all because the sun danced across the sky briefly and so I ventured out to admire Jack Frost's handiwork last night...

... in spite of my fever-riddled oldest son who is residing on the couch with an ashen face and moaning "mom, mom, mooooommmmm..." every few minutes...

... and despite the fact I was in my Grandma pants from the day before and had hardly wiped the sleep from eyes let alone run a comb through my hair...


... when my dh handed me HIS camera and said I had 5 minutes....

... I just could't resist.

  2. I LOVE it Vicky! Thanks for venturing outside and getting these shots. Here in California we are in the middle of a few big storms. All I see is heavy rain and high winds. This looks so much prettier.

  3. Great photos!
    Had that same spectacular flocked look her in WI today too. I just couldn't believe how long it hung on the trees. It really looked like a fairyland out there today.

  5. Susan, it didn't last long here either and I was just glad to catch it.

    Eileen, I hope you are surviving the rain okay... I was watching the devastation of the mudslides and can only hope the rains don't last much longer!

    Crochet, it was so thick and lush... flocked is a good word for it!
