Scenes from inside and out.......

I finished the rest of the blocks for Island Sunrise but this isn't the final layout.  It was 11 p.m by the time I got the photo taken so it was too late to start rearranging them.
The weatherman finally got it right: we got snow.  I'm guessing there is about 7" from what I shoveled off the sidewalk.  The last shoveling was at 5 p.m. and the sidewalk was covered again before I went to bed.
I filled the bird feeders just before dark on Monday night so the squirrels wouldn't bother them.  I knew it was supposed to start snowing early in the morning before I would be up.  This photo was taken before 10 a.m.  There were big flakes in the beginning.  It snowed all day and the snow is wet and heavy.  The temperature was around 32 degrees most of the day so it was comfortable shoveling, but it was really slippery.
This was the scene inside, so much more colorful than outside.
This looks orange on my computer monitor but it is a red with white bloom.

We got about the sme amount. The snow was so wet my coat was soaked when I got in from shoveling. I really like your flowers. The blocks are really nice looking. Lots of work. Chris

The photo taken behind the tree is really nice. I love the contrasts. Hope you got time to read some of the new book you got in preparation for the storm.

Island Sunrise, Blanket of Snow, and Cacti blossoms. The wonderful world of photo's.

By now you have no doubt rearranged your Island Sunrise and your snow is melting, but I'm sure you are still enjoying your blossom's.
