The big snow fall last Friday made my back yard beautiful.  It is cold – less than 5 degrees when I was out taking the photos here. 

I love the beauty of these leaves clinging to the trees and plants, a bit of fall and summer sticking around.  Representative of the way I feel like I’m clinging to God to get through the days.  Nothing wrong with the days making it hard to get through them, just a realization that without clinging I’ll be falling.

The list helps me to cling – giving me something to grasp!

  1. Love these, especially the first one! The transition from fall to winter is always sad to me. That’s probably because I love the fall colors, though! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    You beautiful snow makes my eensy little pellets look pathetic. I love the look of the first snow of the year–so clean and unblemished and full of potential and possibilities. I am fortunate in that if I want snow I can get in my car and drive 20 minutes up into the mountains….all the beauty without any of the hassle of snow removal.

  3. What did you decide on the computer/tablet?

  4. Love the first leaf! We got snow flurries tonight but it didn’t stick, just melted off.

  5. Love that first shot – snow and all (bet ya wasn’t expecting that) 🙂
