Snow is falling on the dry Texas prairie ............

 
just yesterday the grounds were dry and crisp and I was in the middle of a confrontation with a hungry coyote.........
you can see more of this beautiful creature by visiting my country blog

In the wee morning hours, the snow came..........
I love looking out the window of my studio in between my stitching and watching the snow fall.
Before any stitching this morning,
Sophie and I headed out to say good morning to the chickens
and to take a walk in the woods. The snow was blowing

and all was quiet and still. I thought about sitting down and enjoying the solitude of this moment, but the seat had already been taken.

Underneath this white blanket, the fish are slowly moving..........

The faithful old mesquite tree that has always guarded our back yard

knows a secret, hidden beneath it's mighty limbs............
a message that spring is soon on it's way.
Here's hoping that wherever you are,
 you are enjoying the beauty around you and that you are safe and warm.

It looks like you have lots of snow! Today we've had some snow mixed with sleet; really just a dreary day. But I've crocheted a bit in the warmth of the house.

What a lovely place you live in:) Your photos are beautiful. Must be more amazing to see them for real.

The snow does look beautiful, but we are getting tired of it. 5 to 8 more inches expected by Wednesday!
Hope you have a great week!

Wow! I'm not a cold weather or snow person, but it wouldn't be so bad having it come to visit for just a short while. :) It's 50 degrees here right now but I swear it feels so much colder. We don't have heat and it's been cloudy the past few days. Hope you are having a good week. Tammy
