Winter Wonderland

Yesterday, co-blogger Alison said it looked like this at her house in the northwestern suburbs of Minneapolis.

This morning it looks like this in my yard.

The birds and squirrels have devoured every last crabapple and the trees are plastered with light flakes.

The landscape is silent — no birds, no squirrels, no cars, no walkers, no school buses.  It’s a quiet, magical wonderland.

  1. that first photo is very beautiful. don’t you love when the snow is still on the trees and the silence is everywhere? I can’t wait for our first snowfall, but it looks like it won’t be in December.

    • We weren’t home for the majority of the snowfall, but it was coming down in big, soft flakes, which I think are the prettiest snowfall. Of course then you have the shoveling to deal with afterward.
