Pictures of our beautiful first snowfall!

It was snowing last night when we went to bed and when we woke up this morning everything was sooo gorgeous that I just had to share it with you.  God certainly paints a beautiful picture.  Truly breath taking as the sun came up over the woods and everything just glistened!!!!

This is looking out my large window in my craft/shipping/kitchen room.  What a gorgeous view.
Notice the sunflower that is drooping over looking at the ground!  The birds love feeding on it and I didn't have the heart to cut it down.

The front of our house from the road.

Standing  in the road looking out over the field in front of us.  Isn't it a beautiful sight?

Another view of our house from the road.

The view of the pond.  The lines over the pond is fish line with snow on it to keep the heron from eating our fish.  It has worked very well too!

Looking out from our driveway towards the East Woods. Awesome!!!

How beautiful Joan. Love to watch the snow falling but hope it holds off a little while longer. They predict it here next week. Surprised you had it first. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures.

Well, Northern Indiana looks just gorgeous! Nothing like a fresh blanket of snow to make everything hushed and beautiful! We had snow in the Mountains of East Tennessee...6-7 inches worth. Here in the valley it is just cold and dreary. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, how beautiful Joan, you are so blessed with the beauty of the snow. Every single picture is breathtakingly beautiful! Wish I could be there. How fun to build the first snowman of the season. You have so much beauty and inspiration right out your windows! Oh, how I wish it would snow in Florida . . . sigh . . . .!!

Joan, your pics are absolutely
beautiful. My husband came in from
working out in the yard yesterday
and told me some snowflakes were
falling. I hid in the basement
until they stopped falling! LOL
Temps here are supposed to get into
the low 60s most of next week, so I
guess we won't be seeing any more
of the "white stuff" for a while.
I'm glad you are enjoying it now.
Talk to me mid-January!!!
