Snow, Beautiful Snow!

 
This morning I headed out to see my dad in rehab. Yes, he's still there...17 days so far and still unable to go home. He's recovering from his broken hip, but ,oh so slowly! Anyway, when I got in the car, look what I saw on the windshield...SNOW...it finally snowed.
 
When I left dad I quickly walked through a small garden near the rehab center. The garden is called the Psalm 31 Garden. It's a pretty little garden with a small waterfall and a few benches and tables to sit and relax. Today was a little too cold for that.

A dusting of snow made the pansies bow their heads, almost like they were praying.
 

 
It trapped leaves,
 

filled acorn shells,
 
 
and covered the benches.

 
It wasn't a lot, but it was enough to make my day.
I wonder if we'll be getting any more.

  3. Ah! The first delicate snow at last! It's always so pretty in the country, but gets pretty messy looking here in the town after the first gorgeous, swirling flakes!
    Whatever you do, have a wonderful New Year, Cathy!

  4. I love to see people delighted with snow. I kind of forget that a lot of the world doesn't see it much if ever. Hope your dad continues to improve.

  7. You want snow!? Come visit me. I'm willing to share. I'm glad that your father is progressing-albeit slowly. I'm sure it is hard to watch, and frustrating for him.
    For your love of snow...I'm happy for you. Should I only have a dusting now and then, I would like it better too. My fave shot is that one of the trapped leaf. Happy 2014 Cathy.

  8. Glad you took the time to find a garden and taking some pictures. The pansies look like they are praying. Glad you slowed down in 2013 to see things most people don't even know is there.
