Its Winter Time....

As much as I love the Spring with it's glorious growth and color there is something a little mystical about winter, especially when snow is involved.  If there is no snow, winter can be pretty darn boring with colors of grey and brown with an occasional blue sky.  But I am quite giddy when I find red berries on a bush with a little snow and red barns after a snowfall. 


 Red barns are good anytime of the year, but with snow, again mystical.



Some tiny pine cones on a tree are delightful when the snow begins to fall....


To see a tree without it's leaves shows us beauty with it's structure....





Hydrangeas covered with snow in the winter are as beautiful as they are when blooming pink or blue or white in the summer.



And a blue spruce with it's needles a soft ice blue with snow laying ever so gently on it's boughs is a pleasant sight....


And pine needles so long and green....


yes, a winter scene is definitely mystical.


How about you...do you find winter a little mystical?   I am sharing with Madge at


There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.  ~Ruth Stout

Until next time....

  6. Gorgeous photos, especially the red barn. I wish I could experience a snowfall like that at least once in my lifetime.

    Sigh...

  7. I love looking at snow, especially in pictures as beautiful as yours. I liked the first few flakes today, but otherwise I am not a fan of it. Wishes for a great weekend!

  14. Can't say I love the snow, I like seeing pictures but for real snow not so much in my life. I don't like being cold and to be in snow means you have to feel cold. I will just live through you and your beautiful images.

  18. Beautiful. Love the touches of red here and there. I can always find beautiful natural things in the winter but when it is rainy like we have had for the past two weeks. I mean nearly every single day we have had rain. BLECH.. I want some snow.

  20. How lovely! All of these shots are so beautiful. I really enjoyed this! I agree about seeing red in the snow. It's so exciting and it just pops up against all the white.

    Visiting from Weekly Top Shot :) Happy New Year!

  23. Beautiful, oh so very beautiful! I love a red barn & red berries in contrast to all that snow! =)

  24. Were these taken with the new lens? Absolutely loving these!! I'd be giddy, too, to find red berries or a red barn against that white snow. I'd love winter more if we had some white stuff, but I do enjoy the bare limbs because I have a better shot at the birds. :)
