these photos are from two different mornings, on two days back-to-back. the first was cold and brisk, where the sun came out only briefly and i rushed outside to capture the moment. the second was a sleepy weekend morning after a night of fresh, wet snow. the sun came out mid-morning and melted everything away. i love how the snow lasts just a little bit longer out here than it does in town where everything is much more open and, generally, warmer. when the wind blows, snow falls off the tops of the white pines and rains down through the forest, but closer to the ground where i get to walk the snow lingers much longer in the shade.
i also went snowshoeing for the first time over the weekend and loved it! i borrowed someone’s snowshoes for the occasion but now i’m convinced i need to get some of my own. maybe by next season…
it seems like so many folks are itching for spring, but i’m that one crazy gal that’s happy to keep stoking my wood-stove and slipping on icy paths.
