Magical Snow


The snow was incredibly beautiful early this morning...
Around 6:30 am. I climbed the wooden ladder
 to the attic for this view.




It was so exciting but it didn't last...
it fell from the trees by late morning
as the sun got higher and the temperatures rose.

Snowing and Surfers




It snowed all day...a winter wonderland...





Over at the beach the surfers were out.
They looked mysterious through the snow!

The Magic of Snow



I love the magical feeling when it begins
to snow...soft and quiet, gently falling
snowflakes surround me through the windows.






And then it stops...but it will return!

Winter Sky


I'm in love with the winter sky in the late afternoon
when it is cloudy...



I love all the subtle shades of blue and pink



and as the sun peeks out just before it sets


it fills me with inspiration.

Winter Lemons


Here we are surrounded by deep snow
and inside one of our lemon trees
has given us a large lemon!
Also, a cutting from a geranium
that is rooting in a cup of water
has blossomed!
Small delights on a winter's day.

Shoveling Out


Wow, there was so much snow that fell 
overnight
from this enormous blizzard.
 


D did most of the tough spots.

Some of the drifts were up to my shoulders.
 
 
 
The plow added to the height and I thought we would
never dig out!
 
 


I worked on trying to shovel a path
to my studio.
 


I gave up here!

Exhausted!

Storm Update


We ventured out in the late afternoon
along the Kennebunkport coast....











and through Dock Square....




heading home...

Tonight I can hear the wind howling through my window.
The majority of the snow may reach us overnight.
We shall see what the morning brings.

Stay safe and warm if you are affected by this storm!

Nor'easter


Snow is falling as we head into a Nor'easter this
weekend.
Hope everyone stays safe and warm.

Purple Potatoes


Here's the last of our fall harvest of purple potatoes...
am amazed they kept until February.
 


They are so beautiful that I was reluctant to cook them!
