Snowflakes

We're getting a little snow flurry this afternoon!
Don't know if it will amount to anything, but I sure am 
enjoying watching it!  It's dark, grey and windy outside
and the snow it blowing horizontally.
I stepped outside for a second to capture a few with
my camera.....



Some of my flowers bloomed last week when the temps
hit 65 degrees.  I liked this flower shaped flake on a flower!




Each of these is tiny!  Just one would fit on the head of a pin!
No accumulation, but it sure was fun while it lasted!

    4. If I send it to the Fox in Massachusetts,
      You'll get it next even if you don't choose it!
      All the weather heads east
      as you think snow is a big bad beast.

    1. They are so hard to photograph! And yes, I agree....they are tiny intricate amazing things...
      we just think of them as nondescript as raindrops!

  7. Awesome pictures! But I agree with Pat. You can keep it all at your house! I used to snow ski in Vermont and Colorado and absolutely LOVED the snow then, but I'll take the mid 50's I'm supposed to have on Christmas this year any day!

  12. Hi Betsy - they are amazing shots - I always love snow-flakes ... and then a thick fall, but am grateful we're not under snow, looks so white and sparkling. The pansy-like flower shows the colours so beautifully, just setting off that tiny, tiny flake ... gorgeous - thanks for posting these. Cheers Hilary

    1. You have to catch them on something that is as cold as they are...not the ground, but something like a leaf...and no sunshine! haha.
