it happened yesterday

mid-morning, yesterday

a neighbor cat, watching the snow fall

afternoon, with the Christmas tree reflection

"The first snowfall is worth having winter for. First a few tranquil flakes float down, then they come faster, and with purpose. The old greystone walls silver over, the swamp wears a mantle whiter than foam. The pine trees on the slope begin to cast feathers of snow from their branches. Inside the house there is a curious luminous look to everything, and outside the sharp etchings of November begin to blur."

-   Gladys Taber from the December chapter of Stillmeadow Daybook


  1. Oooohhh - thank you for sharing the first snowfall with us!!

    That tree reflection is so special.

  2. Very pretty! I also love the reflection of the Christmas tree. xx We also had our first snow to settle this weekend but most of it has gone already and it's raining again.
