When Snow Makes You Grumpy

This morning we were blessed with over an inch of wet snow.  Normally I am over the moon about snow...but not in March and not this slushy stuff that has little of the beauty of it's fully frozen counterpart.

Pretty?  Eh, not so much.

Complaining was not going to make it go away so I decided to grab my camera and take some photos of plants in the white stuff and hopefully I would find something to take edge off this feeling that it is never going to get warm again.  Once I was out in it I was almost immediately reminded that there is always something delightful if I will only take the time to look for it.

The violets look even brighter in the snow
Korean Lilac with an bobble of snow
Now how cute is this?  Hellebore all bowing in a row.
God knows how much I delight in whimsy

So if you have the winter blues I recommend you give this a try.  It did a world of good for my heart this morning, maybe it will help yours too.  Have a blessed day.

  1. I am so sick of this stealth snow, that arrives and attacks in the night. Ready for a warm-up.

  2. Stealth snow...I love that term! Hey I have an idea...Maybe we need to do a warm up dance? Care to join me?
