Not only do I like the poetry, I like the label "Homegrown." Hope you're not getting too much snow today - we had rain all day and snow started late this afternoon. We're supposed to get 2-3 inches, but it's so wet that it's staying pretty low to the ground.
Thanks, Ginnie. :)We got several inches, I think ... but Sunday's rain washed a lot of it away. Or I should say, converted it into large puddles that are now frozen.
very nice day here after all the snow last weeka beautiful poem
Thank you! :)
beautiful poem about snow... that picture looks some black and white drawing...
It does, doesn't it? I had the same thought myself.Thanks Anna! :)
Just right for February, though. At least in Wisconsin. :)
Lovely :-). I love watching the snow fall, it's fascinating. On a windy evening last week it was very much not arrow-straight, but swirling up and round then whooshing away in gusts of wind - quite hypnotic. And like you I was warm because I was leaning against the bedroom radiator at the time :-D.
Yes, it is hypnotic. I think my favourite type of snow is the spiralling kind that dances its way to the ground. :)Thanks Ginny! :)
Captured so eloquently. I felt like I was there! Love how this poem captures the simplicity and beauty of nature and the domestic every day all in one.
Thank you so much, K!I tend to have my most creative thoughts while doing dishes. :)
Beautiful.Hugs to you,Meredith
Thanks Meredith. Do you wish for snow in sunny Florida? :)
Thank you, Auntie! :)
Beautiful. We actually got quite a bit of snow here yesterday too. Noit sure how much, but I would guess around 5 inches. Sure was pretty...of course I did not have to go out in it.
It's so much more fun when you can watch it from the window with something warm in your hands. At least the icy kind like this was. :)
You certainly get your fair share of snow Sue. Gosh, we have a much milder Winter than that. Hope you continue to keep warm indoors, loved your previous post, I get very upset if my jeans thin away and like you a repair job is what keeps them going xox Penelope
Thanks, Penelope! Yes, in a proper winter we get lots of snow in January and February. And March. Some years it continues into April and even May... that's not quite as thrilling though. :)
Aw so nice xx
Thanks Linda! :)
BEAUTIFUL GORGEOUS SNOW
Thank you, Kathy! :)
Good Morning, Sue! I just enjoyed a good visit with you...catching up on your snow and stitching, photos, prose and poem. Thanks so much for your good tutorials, as well. Yesterday I noticed that the camellia buds closest to my front window are beginning to reveal a hint of their rosy red glory, but I had to melt the ice off my windshield this morning =) xx,Gracie
Fickle February. Hope the buds don't get frozen off! But they're probably used to it by now.Thanks Gracie! :)
I'm rather envying all you US folk your snow ... it's all rain and more rain here, so nothing new there then!
Come summer we may be envying you your rain ... but I hope not. :)
Whenever I feel cold, I run hot water over my hands and it warms me right up. :) Sending warm wishes your way, Tammy
Yes, that's the best solution for chilly hands! That and a nice pair of crochet mitts.... :)Thanks Tammy!
You just amaze me with your lovely words spun into perfect poetry.
Gosh, thanks Ellen! I feel just the same about yours. :)
Post card picture beauty right outside your window.I think we got more snow than you... 24+ inches but whose counting.Susan
Yes, you DID get more than we. (In fact we haven't gotten that much in one fell swoop since 2010, I think.)Hope you're all dug out! :)
Who else but you could write poetry about washing dishes!!! How much did you end up getting? We got traces three days in a row. Seems like a shame to be so cold and not be rewarded with a white blanket.
It's terrible, but I can't remember now how much we got. Probably between 4-8 inches for the week ... then on Sunday we had rain which just turned everything messy. But now it's snowing again, so perhaps the white blanket will return.... :)
