Winter White

Yesterday I awoke to winter white in all its natural loveliness. As Keats said, it was a thing of beauty. Sometimes nature does all the talking.

  1. I. Am. Jealous!
    We are supposed to have an inch (haha) of snow tomorrow!
    These images are so beautiful. I would just sit and look.
    Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Teresa – Yes, it turned out to be more than was predicted. I did just sit and look for a while – with my coffee in the morning – it was breathtaking. We have several well attended bird feeders outside our kitchen window – and their colors against the white background was nature at its best!

  2. Absolutely lovely! Marvelous photographs of a beautiful landscape. Thank you for sharing these images with your lucky readers. Reggie

      Hi Reggie -Thank you. It was so beautiful – almost magical – even as it was coming down in those enormous flakes.

  3. Jane Schott says:

    The blue of the sky in the third photo is so fantastic. I love looking at now except from the gate at the airport. LOL!

  4. Barbara says:

    Just beautiful!! Not nearly enough here on the Massachusetts coast! I love snow. ; )

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Barbara – Yes, I don’t think the storm went up that far. And unfortunately it also didn’t go far enough west to affect where we ski – Bob went up yesterday and reported in that they also seemed to have received some rain before this last storm because there is a lovely layer of ice underneath – ah the joys of east coast skiing.

  5. Look like our back yard, too! We got over 10 inches on Friday and waking up to a blue sky, sun and all the white was glorious. We’re off to do some sledding!

    • quintessence says:

      Buzz – Wasn’t it amazing how fast the snow came down? And in those gigantic snowflakes! Perfect day for sledding – have fun!

  6. My daughter is just home from their ranch in New Mexico and showed me all the pictures of snow-covered landscapes last night. Beautiful images, Q. It’s pretty cold in Houston, wet misty rain…no snow! xx’s

      Hi Marsha – I’m sure it was beautiful there as well. Today was sunnier but the snow trampled on and not as unspoiled. This is the part of winter I love.

  8. Hi Quintessence..this year had been one of the loveliest..we have had snow for a month now and it’s been amazingly pretty..hope you get to enjoy the snow for quite awhile too…maureen

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Maureen – I agree – I hope it stays for a while. The bad part is when it all turns slushy and brown.

  9. We’re supposedly going to get something like this later today. I hope it’s as pretty!

    • quintessence says:

      FTRB – Really? This much down there? That should set the city into a tizzy! But I hope it’s beautiful!

  10. Mrs. French says:

    so lovely. It is suppose to snow today and tomorrow here!

    • quintessence says:

      Mrs. French – I can’t believe how many southern cities are supposed to be getting snow! Hopefully you’ll get enough to be pretty and not just a nuisance.

  11. ann says:

    Stunning makes me miss the snow until the next day when everything is slushy. Makes me want to dress up in a big cashmere sweater, thick socks and curl up on the couch.

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Ann – exactly! This phase is lovely – but the brown slush – not so much! Just what I’m wearing and doing!!

  12. We has a gorgeous snowfall here in Canada as well, picture perfect. Your photos are beautiful in Black and white. XO

  13. Oh Gorgeous! They keep “cautioning” us…promises, promises..

    Thank you for the visuals! Happy Sunday.

  14. Eddie Ross says:

    Beautiful!
    Happy New Year!
    Xo,

  15. Wow – beautiful pictures!
    Hope you had a great weekend (and stayed warm!!!)

    xx grace

  16. I too am so envious. I LOVE snow & haven’t had the pleasure of a playful romp in the fluffy white stuff since we moved from Seattle. Your photos were nature in it’s finest dress.

    I adore your blog & now following!

    Cheers ~ Deb

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Deb – It was too beautiful! And today glorious as well – but with all the footprints etc. I love it when it is still untouched. So glad we found each other – following you as well!

  17. The Zhush says:

    I too was moved by the beauty of the latest snowfall! As much as I loathe winter, there is no getting around how magical our area looks this time of year. Your photos are such a lovely representation of this!

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Zhush – I thought of you – that even you of the warm weather persuasion must have been moved -as clearly you were.

  18. Caroline says:

    I just woke up to snow just like your pictures!! Beautiful! Take care, Caroline

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Caroline – So beautiful in the morning especially. And we here are predicted to get yet another big storm tomorrow night!

  19. Gorgeous! I can’t believe how much snow we’ve gotten in CT this winter! More than at my New Hampshire home!

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Stacy – And we’re evidently getting another big storm tomorrow night!! Hope you’re not traveling!
