As the news is reporting "Snow-magedden" for the whole North West, I am giddy to be in the middle of it with the rest of my northwest friends. I love the way a blanket of snow transforms everything: yards become blank canvases, trees look lacy, and everything is a little more peaceful in the muffled quiet. Here's a few pics of the winter wonderland in our own yard. Enjoy!
We call this tree "The Old Woman" in the winter when she's all snowy. Can you see it?
A view of our yard from the Dining Room window.
The trees that line our driveway - hence our home's name "Cottonwood Grove"
More lacy trees.
The tree house (and just beyond it, the sledding hill!)
These pictures were taken with just a few inches of snow. Now we have about a foot of white stuff, so there are many adventures to be had today in our winter wonderland!
