Life in the snow globe

"I am not sure if you live in one of the most beautiful places on earth," said Mary Lou, "or if you just bring out and see the beauty in everyday life."

Today, my friend, I'd have to say it's the surroundings and the camera.
What a lovely snow day!

Our little world looked like a perfect snow globe.

Trees, barns, fields... all so unbelievably beautiful.
We walked and jogged for a long, long while.
Somehow the trees always hold particular fascination for me. 
And coated in snow they are the most graceful element of a landscape.

The barns and fields under the white blanket had never been more beautiful and natural than they were today.

I was not the only one to kick up my heels and run for joy.

Mary Lou, I definitely live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Dear blog reader, come and visit. We will drink tea in the studio and take a stroll that will be familiar to you whether you're my neighbor or someone from far away.

This is your invitation.
Come visit soon.

I saw your snow picture and realized I hadn't been to your blog in too long a thank you for the snow photos. We actually have very little snow here in Wisconsin and we are missing our snowshoeing that we did last winter. But the weatherman says maybe tomorrow! Hugs,Donna

Thanks for the snow pictures on your blog. When I saw the one I knew I needed to see what else you had done. We are actually a little bereft of snow here in Wisconsin, but forecast calls for some tomorrow. I will strap on my snowshoes and take a hike! Hugs! Donna

From Mary Lou:
sharyn, thank you for the heart warming invitation. if i ever get out your way i would love to just say hello. i am sick with a head cold and would love to run in that snow(i like snow) . i am hoping for healing by friday (say a little prayer for me) as i have reservations to go to the atlanta gift mart with a friend on friday for a very quick visit. the invitation goes both ways . if you ever get near me i would love to take you out on our small little putt putt boat and go crabbing. i bet you would like it. stay warm and keep enjoying your beautiful area. i know it is a treat for me to see the pictures.

Dear Sharon, I love your Blog. I also love the snow on trees. Although I don't have a picture of the tree I remember from 40+ years ago when I was a teenager, my best friend lived on a dairy farm in lewiston Utah. One cold winter night we went sledding behind the tractor. Our breath froze the tips of our noses, and the cold frost on the huge willow trees in their yard were like a fairy land. I might not have physical picture but I still have my memory. Hugs to you new friend , I look forward to seeing your world. Linda Vincent

Lovely, lovely, lovely. We moved out of the "snow belt" almost 12 years ago....but the ONLY thing I miss about it is the images you are sharing now.
I remember the sound of the snow falling late at night ...and the "sizzle" sound it made on top of the already fallen snow. Otherwise... not another sound could be was heaven.
