Here Today, Gone Tomorrow


We had brief snow shower late yesterday~

I reached for my camera since our snowfalls

tend to be the ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ variety :)


So pretty to watch falling

and a welcome sight for us,

since it’s a rare occurrence~




Hope you’re tucked away inside

warm & cozy, wherever you are!


Now that I have my snow fix,

I’m ready for spring!


Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:

    There is something so peaceful about falling snow. We live in Central illinois but we haven’t had much snow this year.. I’ve missed those quiet, beautiful days. Your pictures are wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing. I love seeing pretty snow pics. I wish we would get just one day of snow to enjoy and then it can leave. Very cold here.

  5. February 17, 2013 at 9:07 am take such beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful snow, Mary. Sort of like the surprise snow we had a couple of weeks ago. Arrived and left in a hurry but we enjoyed, just the same.

    We’ve planned a getaway for next month, in southwest Missouri. Sort of off the beaten path. We could get snowed in, because we have had some big snows in March. Nice place to be snowed in though.:-)

    Don’t you love the wonderland no matter how brief? There’s something magical about a snow covered landscape.

    So pretty! We had big snowflakes yesterday, too, but only for about ten or fifteen minutes. I love to watch snow falling….

    I’m ready for spring, too!

    Hi Mary, I’m so happy you had your touch of snow! Those are the perfect flakes–huge and wet– they make everything pretty and then melt away. We have had enough up here but are awaiting another blast. I can usually tell if the predictions are correct because the birds gather in huge numbers around the feeders before the snow arrives. Enjoy your snow and stay warm! It’s a good time to read the seed catalogs! Linda

    These pictures are amazingly beautiuful. Almost makes me wish we would get another big dumping of snow. Almost:)

    Love your pictures! Yesterday we had sunshine and 72°! Spring is already in California!!

    Love the beautiful photos.. ours is usually here today and gone tomorrow, too. So sad. And this year we haven’t even had a decent snow at all, making these photos so much nicer to see. xo marlis

    Beautiful! I really love the picture of the pier.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    Mary, it is beautiful, but have to say I wouldn’t welcome a snowfall now. As of yesterday the roses and other shrubs were pruned back, feed, and waiting for spring. I’d be scrambling to cover everything in my garden if we had a surprise snow. ‘-)
    Planted pots of geraniums yesterday too. Like you, I’m ready for spring!

    As long as there’s not too much of it, I always enjoy watching the snow. Thanks for the lovely wintry pictures.

    Beautiful photos! We had the same storm go through south of you and ended up with a winter wonderland in only moments! The snow started so suddenly, came down so quickly, and the snowflakes were so large, kids were making snowmen in 45 minutes! A blast of blizzard and then just as quickly gone again. Nothing’s left today except what the kids made, but we have photos of that sparkling white snow and a gorgeous sunset over the lake as the storm clouds rolled through! It made for a memorable birthday. Thanks for capturing it so well!

    Beautiful snow and beautiful photos…I love to see snow falling but I am so glad I don’t live anywhere near it falling… ;-) When I lived in SC I experienced a couple of huge ones…Glad I don’t have to anymore!

    Your pictures are so pretty. It looks like you had a nice gentle snow. Yesterday we had “lake effect” snow. Moments of lots of snow and blowing followed by sunshine that melted it all. I am ready to be done with snow in Ohio!

  21. February 17, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    love your great big fat wet flakes, like your own personal wonderland. beautiful, peaceful, quiet shots, wonderful way to enjoy the day~

    We got several inches of snow here in Florence, SC.

  23. February 17, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    We had snow here, too, and I got so darn excited! Took some pics this morning when I woke to a winter wonderland. Your first photo is stunning with the shot of the birdhouse and pier in the falling snow.

  24. February 17, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Very pretty photos! I like the one of the daffodils showing. They are pretty hardy aren’t they?
