About a month ago it snowed about eight inches overnight. It was the kind of snow that covers the trees perfectly & everything looks smooth & soft.
It was so pretty that I went out with my camera early in the morning to capture the beauty.
I wanted to get some shots before the sun or kiddos ruined the soft white serenity.
It also was getting late enough in the winter that I thought "this will be the last big snowfall we get...
... From here on out we will just get little dustings & the sun will melt most of the pretty white stuff away...
... The ground will have snow on it, but it will be dirty melted snow. So I better capture this moment now. A sort of farewell to winter."
Boy was I WAY off! We have gotten so much snow since then. The other week we got one foot overnight. I swear winter will not stop here, it's just going to bleed into next winter. I'm so ready for Spring! I'm tired of shoveling, feeding horses, & snow boots. It's time for bare ground & warm air. So Winter, I love you & mean this with the best of intentions, but it is time for you to go now.
