We finally got some snow......

We normally have had 14" of snow by this time in the winter.  We have only had bare covering twice before this storm this year.  I shoveled 4" off the sidewalk and porch at 5 p.m. and there was another 2" on the porch when I took this photo.  It was still snowing at 11 p.m. but the 10 o'clock weather radar showed it would end soon.
I always leave the sedum flower heads so I have a snow mushroom patch.
I left one hydrangea bloom in the front flower bed too.
Sorry for the lack of color today.  I have been cleaning up the basement in anticipation of my art quilters coming on Monday.  Since I'm working at the $3 a yard sale at Quilter's Heart today and tomorrow, I decided I had better start sorting out the clutter and clean off the tables yesterday.

It looks so pretty but I'm glad I don't have to live with it!

We got a little bit yesterday too. However, I think I would have been just as happy if it stayed away.

the snow really looks pretty over all the plants. My daughter in WI has not had much snow this winter either but was expecting about 8 inches yesterday.

Nice snow pics! We are getting our first 'real' snow today. Until yesterday my lawn was as green as it's ever been all year. I love snow! No, let me clarify that. I love the FIRST snow of the winter.

Love the snow pics. We are expecting snow tonight, and Sun thru Wed. Weatherman isn't committing to any measurements though! Finally winter has arrived and I love the crisp cold days we've been having. Just got caught up on your blog yesterday, Such an explosion of color, LOVE everything you have going on! Hope your dad is doing ok and his tests are all good.

Yes, the snow has come and a good day to be lazy. Happy Friday. Hope the sale goes well. I love the pictures.

Your photos do a great job of showing your fluffy, light snow. I like the picturesque way it settled on the plants. We finally got snow too, but only an inch or so. That's enough to remind us that it's winter.
I like your header photo. Your H quilt is lovely.
