Gratitude Monday - Simple Beauty

We have a bit of snow. It's not much, but it helps the small animals whose coats turn  hide from predators. I am grateful for it, but we need more.
The weather has been warmer than it ought for this time of year. All we can do is enjoy what we have.
Yesterday we went for a walk in the Cheddarville Natural Area south and west of town. We found a trail to walk on through the woods. It was sunny, not too cold, and a quadder had seen to it the trail was fairly easy to walk on. I am grateful for easy walking.
Snow-capped trees and grass are beautiful and silent.  It was almost too quiet with only a chickadee here and there to remind us we were still in the world.
There is much to be grateful for in the world and snow is included.

Snow is beautiful, but cold makes me hurt, so i'm glad ot enjoy it in pictures. My hope will be that you will get more, plenty for the season, and that we won't have any this year, because the swamp plants really don't like it much.

I can't say that I mind not having snow here, yet.. but understand its importance and beauty. And when it does arrive, I'll no doubt enjoy its finer aspects. Lovely shot, Leah.

We have had a few flakes that melted as soon as they hit the ground, but there will be more, no doubt. We've had a lot of good soaking rain, which means I have had to put off cutting my Christmas tree, since I don't want to bring all that water into the house and there is no way to dry a tree!

I am attempting to get through winter without buying a coat. There have been a few flakes here, but not many…I am grateful for that. It sure does look gorgeous though.

Thanks, all, for sharing your views on snow. Glad the pic is a hit.

Beautiful shot of the white stuff! None here yet, but I suspect it won't be long. We're not scooting out for warmer climes until mid January this year, so thanks for the preview of coming attractions!

My pleasure, Crabby.
