  1. That snow looks like frosting on the leaves Cathy! Great color in yet another great shot! But I probably would have titled it, “The Start of Yet Another Long Winter.” I’m (senti)mental that way.

      We awoke to a white blanket on Friday morning and fortunately it wasn’t enough to break the tree, but it did look like frosting on the leaves. The utter absurdity was that I was tromping around in the back yard through three inches of snow in my Birks to get the shot as the snow was melting fast and I didn’t want to take the time to put on boots. But it was worth it – you know – anything for the shot. Thanks, V!

    For whatever reason, my comment above just posted before I could finish!! Anyway, you have snow already? We are finally in the low 70s here and it’s coming on the time of year here in the South that is my favorite. High 60s, sunny, low humidity. Perfect for any and everything. And I love the quote — it is so true and one I’ve been practicing (some days great and some days, not so much) for the past year. Here’s to embracing the absurdity and all the wonderful joy as well. Have a great day, C. xo

      I remember those fall days in the south, Brigitte (I’m an Atlanta native). A time when we could finally break out the sweaters and boots! Like you, it’s one of my favorite times of the year. It’s also beautiful here, but definitely cooler, although I think my blood has adjusted over the years. A 40 degree day usually calls for a light jacket, especially if the sun’s out. Yes, here’s to embracing absurdity and joy! Have a wonderful day, Brig!

  6. Continental weather. On my small island, we expect no snow until December or later, apart from the highest mountains.

    Supremely deliciously looking – that tree. The juxtaposition of the crisp blue sky and snow against the warmth of the red and orange is stunning. I love your eye.

    I also love Jenny Lawson. She is brilliant, isn’t she?!

      Yes, I do love Jenny Lawson! Thanks so much, Mary. As I watched the snow starting to drop off of the maple when the sun hit, I decided I needed to run out there in Birkenstocks with my camera! I’m so glad I did. A moment in time, I suppose!

  10. What? You already got snow? I’m jealous! I’m in Maine, shouldn’t I get firsties??

    Love the photo, though. Our trees in the back yard would look like that too if it snowed! πŸ™‚

  17. Ah I LOVE that!! We don’t get snow in my country, besides Cape Town, so I dont have the pleasure of seeing a blanket of snow covering plants and flowers. So pretty!

      The snow is early this year and we’re hoping that means a good ski season! I loved the snow on this maple and I was also glad it didn’t damage the tree. Just enough to show of its color. Thanks so much.
