This morning we awoke to the most beautiful site at the Chateau! The rain that we were having last night turned to a wet and heavy snow, turning everything into a winter wonderland! I just came in from snapping these shots, so now I am warming up with a cup of hot cocoa. The wind is really picking up, and more than once a bunch of that wet snow fell from the trees right smack dab on my face! It was a bit cold, to say the least! (You can click on each photo once to enlarge it if you want.)
As you can see from our flag, it was really getting windy!
The view looking away from our house. This pretty light has the most magical twinkling lights!!
The shrubs look so pretty in their blanket of snow!
I just love the way our retaining wall looks with all of the snow on it!!
That is one chilly looking little birdie!
View of our backyard and the woods behind our house. So pretty and so peaceful!
A quick and easy arrangement of some greenery and pinecones. I actually used faux snow on this. It was my first time using the flocking, and I learned the hard way that it is best to spray it outside! Boy, does that stuff make a mess!
Another snow shot, and a few birds braving the elements to dine at our feeders!
Hope you all are having a warm and cozy day!
