Midland's Snowy Blanket

No snow for Christmas...
No snow the entire month of December...

But, last night the snow finally arrived in Midland,
in Michigan, and in many other states.

Not the destructive volumes of snow that buried cities in Alaska.
Not enough snow to close local schools.
But enough to cover the brown winter landscape.
Just a pretty, fluffy white blanket of snow.


Winter wonderland view outside my bedroom window. 


Pine tree tip bends from the weight of the snow.


A better view of the yard from another second story window.  
The bird feeder looks so tiny next to the mature trees.


I'll get my coat and head outside so I can get some close-up shots.
The snowmen placed on the decorative fence in December
 finally look at home.


Rhododendrons are buried from the snowfall.


Snow-covered branches of Japanese maple
frame the front entryway.


A picture perfect evergreen!


And the snowman puffs his rosy cheeks
and smiles at the beauty that surrounds him.


Until next time -- live and love well,

                                      Debra

You guys got a lot of snow out of that system. We are in S. IL and we didn't get that much, but it sure is cold! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
