The view from my window

If we can look past the fact that we are very tired of snow, it is obvious how absolutely beautiful it is. It is so clean and so white. It clings and accumulates, creating neat shapes and snow structures.
Kenna, from Beholden to Nature, has inspired me to really look at my surroundings and to notice the beauty that surrounds us every single day.

I could tolerate snow in (almost) April if I had that beautiful view.

One of my very favorite movies is Holiday Inn, and I imagine your snow being like that.

Hope you are cozy and comfy!

Are you having school? Stay Cozy & safe.
Hugs,

Oh my gosh! I am *so* honored by this. I don't have the words to tell you how wonderful this made me feel, but suffice it to say you basically just told me I'm achieving my biggest mission of inspiring greater appreciation of nature. Thank you!

And I'm so happy that you were able to turn the "blah snow" view into beautiful snow! Snow is soooo amazing- I've always marveled at it. :)
Lovely view from the window- Well done!

We had a storm like this last week. I actually loved being inside and watching that storm swirl around. It probably would have been a different story if I (or a loved one) was traveling, but in this case we were sequestered inside. Your photos are beautiful!

Your photos reflect exactly how I feel about nature in general for I love all seasons and what it brings us. I'm especially fond of ice storm results (as long as it does no real damage!) because, like snow, it creates such beauty.

Hey! No pre-pictures of my workspace but I imagine it looked a bit like the mess of snow you have!

Hope your safe and warm!

Really pretty, but I just don't think I could do it. I think Oklahoma's bad! LOL Such a southern girl....

I have always loved pictures of snow. Snow can hide a drab yard, or a dreary landscape. Everything looks pretty under a coat of snow.

That said, for your sake, I hope you don't get anymore! ;-)

It is very pretty, but you can keep it. Sorry, couldn't resist. I'll take spring now, please!
