oh, the weather outside is frightful

and I am so excited!!

It started out as rain about 10:30 this morning, then changed to this sleet. I took these photos around 1:00.

About an hour after I took the drippy photos, this started.

Oh, a note for Sissy, the bud in yesterday's photo is actually the leaf bud on my Zone 3, winter hardy magnolia.

And a note for Julie H. - I took a photos of the succulent again today with the snow on it but it was just bad - too difficult to make out the subject.


  1. Hooray! Perhaps you will get a white Christmas?

    We had snow over my knees, then a few days of warm weather this week. Now I can see the grass on our front lawn. I'm just hoping and praying it doesn't snow before we leave for my parents. If the roads are bad we'll be stranded here for Christmas.

  2. Ooooooooo, I love snow! I wish for it here. However I did really enjoy the rare very sunny day today, it was perfect for walking around finishing Christmas shopping. Now for some sun AND snow (wishing, wishing...)

    Your little gift was mailed yesterday by the way, I am so behind in things. Its teeny, but I really hope you enjoy it : )

    Blessed Almost Christmas! Wendy

  3. I'm so happy for you!

    No snow expected here in West Michigan.

    I'd hoped for a little, to cover up my unraked leaves in the backyard.

  4. Congrats on getting snow. I think I'll honestly be happy either long as there isn't ice. lol

  5. How wonderful! I have been relishing all the snow pictures I can see this Christmas, as we are very hopeful that we'll be moving to Canada next winter! It's so exciting to see the white stuff fallling!!!

  6. SNOW!!!! We are still getting rain. Sigh. Though I guess it is ood, me havong to drive an hour away and all. These are stunning photos.

    These photos are awesome!!! I love magnolias...I cried when we had to cut the one in our backyard husband was just so exhausted from picking up the pods everytime he had to mow.
