Shadow Shot Sunday: no snow shadows today

I've had to go to my archives for Christmas snow-shadows because Christmas Day is dull, dreary, and warmish (+7C, almost 45F) with ice melting on the road in front of our house. Now that I have my new window from which to see them, the deer aren't coming to eat our ornamental crabapples because there is plenty of grass available for them. Tomorrow promises to be sunny, with slightly lower temperatures, then continuing warmish with sunshine until Friday when there might be some wet flurries (mixed rain and snow).
Not jolly ho-ho-ho holiday weather, but the highways are clear for family visiting.
These photos are from December 2009, and from the spring of this year when the snow wouldn't and wouldn't and wouldn't stop.

Lindy's whiskers
froze in 2009,
the year we
adopted her,
but she didn't care.
She was so happy
to have a family.
Here she is,
posing for photos,
despite sitting
in shadow.
We think she's
the very best!

I love the photo of our snowberry bush, above, covered in glistening fresh snow.

Here's the snowberry bush again, with new snow falling in big, fat flakes.

Shadows deep inside this Mugo Pine look like a hideaway for a small animal.

A very interesting snowy world! I only see this world on blogs like yours!

But the real treasure is Lindy! A delightful profile of her!

Hope your Christmas has been a delight!

You missed the snow this Christmas. But from the pics you've have had lots of them before. It balanced up I suppose!.Happy New Year!

I've always loved seeing shadows on pristine snow. Now that's something I don't see around here.

Have a very happy and healthy Christmas and holiday, Kay! Big hug for Dick and Lindy, too!

It's been crazy over here actually and I can barely get a post up. I'm dying to catch up with my blog visits. Things should calm down in another couple of days... I hope.

Hey Harriet said...

Frozen whiskers? Oh poor Lindy! I love these photos from your archives! Especially the one of sweet Lindy looking very pensive.

I hope you had a most wonderful Christmas Kay :) xo
