First Snow......










Today was our first snowy morning...

I am sure....only one...of many more to come...

I had finished my front planter last weekend...

The snow made it even prettier♥

My daughter had bought me some rather interesting greenery this year....

Love the variegated cedar!

It has green mini-lights in it....very dramatic at night...

                                     *******

Hope you are all having a great day...

We had Miss V this afternoon...she is still sleeping♥

Poor little dear was pretty tired....

                                     ******

Heading out for dinner this evening...not sure where yet  :o)

Hope you all got around allright in the snow...

Everyone safe and sound....

Enjoy the rest of your day.....

                            Cheers!  :o)

  7. I love your wicker planter arrangement, Linda, and it looks so pretty with the fresh snow on it. It must look pretty at night all lit up. It's still pouring rain and blowing and 14 here. It hasn't stopped all day. Good thing it isn't snow!

  8. I think you're right...the snow was the finishing touch for your planter! Just lovely! We didn't get nearly the snow that was forecasted but it's cold enough that what we had has remained. Makes for lovely photographs!

  10. The first snow is always lovely and we rush out to take photos ... but I'm sure that feeling changes after a few times.
    We had about 15 cm. of snow, more than you, but roads, paths, driveways etc area all clear and safe till the next time.

    1. It is not as romantic as you would think, Tammy......
      Once it gets all dirty....and slushy....it can be pretty darn ugly at times!
      The first snow is always exciting though!

  14. Linda...lovely showing of your talent with the planter. Might I ask...what do you use to secure your greenery and things into the planter? Do you water them? ...I've used florist foam in the past, but it seems to wither away.

    1. Hi Dot....I simply pull out my Annuals...and stick the greenery and stuff right into the soil in the top of my planter...once it freezes...everything is secure!
      I had to add some boiling water to soften the soil, as it had frozen a bit already!
      Thanks for stopping by!
