Wintry Mix

Winter returned last night, bringing sleet, ice, and snow. I braved the chill early this morning to snap a few pictures. . . also snapped an inside photo of another way I display butter pats. Tomorrow we'll probably clear away all the broken limbs. Too bad lovely ice causes all kinds of problems. However, our light dusting is nothing compared to what others are experiencing this winter. Counting my blessings and wishing you warmth and goodness on this Wednesday,

Your pictures are beautiful. I love the one with the red berries especially. The ice and snow are really quite lovely but when our power went out for 10 minutes I freaked! 7000 homes are still without power here. So sad. Nancy

Hi Nancy and Summer,
Thanks for visiting. The tree with the red berries is a hawthorn. I had to ask my husband to be sure. We still have patches of snow on the ground and haven't cleared off fallen branches yet. I can't imagine being without power for weeks.
