Saturday Snapshot: Snowy Retreat

Although the snow can be pretty and almost serene, I’m tired of seeing it. I know those of you in warm climates enjoy the snowy pictures so I’ll stay with the season.

I took this shot early in the morning after the snow had stopped falling at my favorite bird watching area.
Photo taken at Cantigny Gardens.
Saturday Snapshots is hosted by Alyce. Head on over to At Home With Books to see more great photos or add your own.

    What a beautiful spot even with the snow. It’s only January and I’m tired of snow and cold. I’m ready for spring! Have a great day!

    Just Books

    It’s so pretty it could be a postcard! But, yeah, the snow . . . I hear ya.

    That is a gorgeous photo! I’d just like it to snow around here for a few days each year. We only get nice fluffy snow that sticks (and by that I mean sticks enough to make a snowman) about once every five years.

    I completely know what you mean about snow after a while. We don’t have any on the ground here, but today is cold and feels more like Chicago winter, high of 24! Yikes! I am becoming a big wimp!

    This takes my breath away. Sometimes I do miss the snow.

    Lovely photo – it looks like icing on the trees. We’ve had snow since the middle of November and I’m tired of it now – but it does make good photos.

    I think pictures of snow are extra-special…I have posted blog headers of snow because I like it so much. And then there’s the whole “it’s my name thing,” LOL.

    Here’s my post:
