Sick of the Snow?

March 3, 2015

In Central Indiana, “snow” has become a four letter word. Well, it always was a four letter word, s n o w. On Sunday 10 inches of the lovely, white fluff fell to the ground. I truly understand the disgruntled state of my fellow spring dreaming friends, but let’s not sit around pouting. Join me on a stroll around my yard as I find beauty in the midst of a lingering winter. Welcome to my house. Any home is lovely covered in snow.

Branches, heavy laden with snow are a beautiful sight. Add a red cardinal sitting on the branches and you have one of my favorite things.

Interesting snow patterns are so fun to find. It might be a little chilly to sit on this bench right now, and the waterfall and small pond that it faces have disappeared, so I’ll wait until spring to settle down for a spell.

The creek is under there somewhere. It won’t be long and beautiful purple violets and adorable Dutchman breeches will cover this area, but I do think the sun dappled snow is lovely too.

Our chairs aren’t going anywhere. They are right where we left them, waiting for us to return.

The rope swing is evidence of a swimming hole coaxing any Tom Sawyer who might happen by.

The snow has eliminated room for legs to dangle as we swing and read, but it won’t be long and great literature will once again be heard aloud in these woods. This is still a beautiful view to me.

That sky is stunning in any season.

Toulouse is not a fan of the snow except for the fact that he gets carried and receives plenty of snuggle time.

Petals does not plan on putting one paw in that white stuff!

Puddles has no intention of stepping outside his door either.

Can you push me?

Our patio will once again host my, “French dreaming” dinners.

The icicles are evidence that eventually all snow melts, and they give us a visual treat in the process.

Although covered with snow, I’m sure it is toasty inside and ready for our little wren friends.

We cannot predict the weather. (neither can the meteorologists) The one thing that we can predict is that storms will come and storms will go. Spring follows winter, and summer WILL arrive. Enjoy each day no matter what it brings. Find beauty in every day, and in every season. Slow down and spend time with those you love. If we wish away winter, it will indeed be spring one day, but you will have missed all those days you were wishing for something different.

Find beauty today. It is all around you.
