Yesterday was our son Sayeed’s birthday. How quickly time passes. When he was a little child, I would wait for him to grow up so he could talk and run and go to school etc. Now he is all grown up and advises me and my husband about various financial matters and about the things we buy. Such a big man.
It snowed almost all day yesterday. First it was the sleet, which came down thick and heavy. This changed to snow, and it was like rain coming down in white sheets. It looked so beautiful.
Doesn’t it look so pretty? A tree in the backyard later had small bits of snow stuck to it like berries on a bush. Unfortunately you cannot see that clearly in the picture, but it was so pretty.
This morning the whole place was just covered with about seven inches of snow. Thick wet whit snow, with big glops on branches and shrubs. looked like cotton balls.
These trees in the backyard gave such a sense of awe and grandeur. How could snow look so beautiful one day and turn to slush and dirt the next day?
Doesn’t the snow look like balls of cotton on the branches in the above two photos?
This pine tree is one of the many that lines Saadia’s driveway. Davis, who spent the night with me last night, told me this morning, that every time there is snow on the pine tree, it looks so much taller. When I took this picture, I thought indeed it looked so much taller than yesterday!:)
And then you have this vista of mesmerizing beauty, and you wonder where the tree tops end, and the sky starts! Scenes like these make me feel humble at the beauty that nature offers to our eyes.
The above two pictures are of the huge magnolia tree in my neighbor’s front yard. In spring, it is loaded with the largest pink blooms. I wish I had a picture from spring to show it here.
Have a great weekend. Carolyn, I am glad you are able to post again. Thanks to Eugenia.
Love and hugs to all of you.
