An Ice Day

Ice fell from the sky, and covered the gardens in a thin frozen blanket. I wandered around, thinking about when it was warm and all the flowers were in bloom. It won’t be much longer now.                        

Cemetery Snowfall

My favorite cemetery looked magical during a snowfall last winter. The orange leaves that still clung to some trees made an interesting autumn contrast against the white snow. It was a rare early December snow. Usually it never snows here until sometime mid January, when all the leaves are long gone. Wandering around, a cubed […]

Cherry Snow

It was late March, and it snowed again. For the fourth time. It rarely snows even once in March. I was ready for warm weather, but I can never help being excited when I see the fluffy white snow cover all the flowers. When snow was predicted in the forecast, my camera came to work […]

A March Winter

It was a winter that was much colder than recent yeas had been.  The flowers that begun to spring up in January of last year were nowhere in sight until March. The cold continued, and it snowed more times in March than it had for the entire winter. On the second day of spring, as […]

I Didn’t Feel the Cold at First

The snow that started the day before, was still falling.  There was a Christmas party later that evening.   It was the perfect December Saturday. I was so excited. I barely noticed how cold it was without a coat. But after a while the cold did get to me!

Snow Maze

Whenever it snows I just want to be out in it, exploring. Everything has a diffeernt look to it when its all covered in white. On the day it snowed last, I went exploring downtown. I wandered all over.  Eventually I came to this little park I always forget exists.  A little waterfall, with suspended […]

Snow Garden

The snow that fell in December, quickly covered the ground and all the plants with a fluffy white coating.  Even the dead remains of flower stalks that I never got around to ripping out of the ground.  They’ve sat there for months, taunting me with their ugly selves, a reminder of yet another thing I […]

A Snow in December

A snow in December is rare around here. Especially in early December, before Christmas.  When I looked at the weather forecast, and saw it was supposed to snow a week later, I certainly didn’t believe it. But then, on that late Friday morning, as I stared out the window at work, towards the dark grey […]


I love how snow makes the world I know, look like a whole new place. How it clings to every surface and transforms it into a magical land. We only got one snow this winter. I dream of one day living in a place where snow covers the ground most of the winter.
