Into Each Life a Little Snow Must Fall...


"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, 

for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside

 the fire: it is the time for home."

~ Edith Sitwell



"In winter we lead a more inward life. 

Our hearts are warm and cheery,

 like cottages under drifts..."

~ Henry David Thoreau



"Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow, Filling the sky and 

earth below, Over the housetops, over the street,

 Over the heads of the people you meet. 

Dancing, Flirting, Skimming along."

~ J.W. Watson


We are to receive our first snowfall of the new year this afternoon and I am thrilled. 
I love Winter and all of it's beauty. Think of each snowflake as Winter's butterflies!

Stay safe and warm dear friends...and enjoy this season for all that makes it special.

Hi Sue, I'm catching up on my blogs today. What lovely photos! (although all of your photos are beautiful!). I love winter too, and was giggly as a little girl when we got our first snow a few days ago. (trying to drive in it, and slippin' and slidin' though, I wasn't so giggly! lol) But once errands were done, I enjoyed the snow so much! It's so pretty and I don't even mind shoveling it.

I honestly miss the snow. I grew up in New England. Some people think I'm nuts. I don't miss shovelling it, but I do miss the beauty. It always seemed like the world was more at peace when it snowed. Thank you so much for sharing with us because otherwise I might never be able to enjoy the snow again.

Well, I guess your snow has probably melted by now. Beautiful photos. I love the first few snows of the season, but they wear out their welcome around February 1st!

PEA said...

Well the darn Winter butterflies are coming here by the thousands! lol We had our first major snowfall yesterday and supposed to get another one starting tonight. It's a good thing I really don't mind the snow and cold:-) It's been a bit too frigid to go for a walk but hopefully soon it will start to warm up enough. Love your pictures, dear Sue, and love you! xoxo

It's so awfully cold here -- looks like it there, too! Your winter pix are lovely, but oh, I am longing for summer again!

Sue said...

awwww....you were so sweet to stop by and wish me birthday wishes. Getting old sure is not for sissies! :) Love your winter post. We haven't had any snow this winter and I am not complaining.....in fact it's in the 60's today and has been all week. Save some on our outrageous electric bill But we really do need a good snowfall to kill off some of the yucky bugs. :) I love how you said snowflakes were like winter butterflies. :) xo
