Winter Wonderland....

well, almost.

On this cold and blustery day we received our first real snow of the season. Woo-hoo! One day last week the clouds just spit a few snowflakes at us and called it good.

But not today.... no sir-ree Bob!

By about 9:00 this morning this is what it looked like in my back yard....

Of course this picture was taken from the warmth of my living room. Kansas wind, on a 30 degree day, with lots of snow thrown in.... just does not make for a pleasant outdoor photo shoot. I love ya'll -- just not that much!

The house in the background on the right? That's the snow making it look like my camera was out of focus!

At noon the landscape was beginning to take on a more wintry appearance....

And by 3:00....

And still the snow continued to fall. For about another hour. So the accumulation was a tad bit more than you see here. Not quite a winter wonderland, but hey, it's not officially winter yet. There's still plenty of time!

This has put me in the mood.

For Christmas, of course!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

Oh those pictures are so chilly! Very christmassy (is that a word) It's not cold enough to snow out here, but we're getting plenty of rain!

Hi Iva,
It's Mary, from Little Red House. Your snow actually looks very charming. We have been getting torrential rains and 37 degrees. Yuk!

You asked what camera I use. It is a Nikon D40. It's very easy to use, and I love it. :)

Merry Christmas!
