Real Snow This Time

Please join me in a tour of our winter garden as I shuffle around in Mom's new rubber boots. She found these on clearance at Ross' and they are wonderful. I've got to get me a pair.

Enter Our Winter Wonderland

they chose to wait higher up

Last Wednesday we got snow, 3 inches of this gorgeous stuff and the roads were horrible. I took a vacation day, stayed home and played. By Wednesday afternoon the main roads were clear and the back roads were starting to slush up. By Thursday afternoon everything was back to normal. It seems like we have had more snow this year than ever before. They said this is our normal only we haven't had normal for the last several years. Here's hoping normal doesn't visit us again any time soon.

Our own state groundhog, Chattanooga Chuck, is predicting no early spring and lots more winter. What a major dud!


  1. Your snow pictures are beautiful! The garden always looks lovely covered in snow. We have had a lot of snow this year ~ I'm just happy it doesn't stay around for long.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. Looks like a faerieland Sandy. I love your mom's boots!!! Beautiful garden, even in Winter.

  3. Wow what great pictures! We are from Tennessee also. We live in the Nashville area and we have had so much snow, enough that even though I think it is pretty I am really tired of it. I am so looking forward to Spring! Glad I found your blog.

  4. A winter wonderland...beautiful. We got a bit of the white stuff last night but nothing like yours. I'm trying to get a shot of the cardinals feeding on the deck.
    Stay warm ;-)
