Silver Linings

February has been a difficult month here in New England.
 I've lost track of the number of snow storms we've had, 
which have left us with piles of snow,

and ice dams on our roofs (this is not my house),

which have resulted in many leaks inside the house.

Needless to say, many of us, including me, are feeling a bit bleak about the weather
as we look to the home repairs we'll be facing in the spring.

But today, when I was out driving, I noticed that beyond the dirty snow
there was a beautiful azure sky.

When I had parked the car, I took more notice and spent a few minutes
just looking up. So much beauty right above my head!

And I thought back to this paper cut I had posted on Facebook a couple 
of weeks ago, reminding us of how much worse it would be if snow were black!

Silver Linings…!

Hope your February is going well!

Snow Day

It is a very snowy, blustery day here in New England, and the new, rapidly
 falling snow is adding about a foot to our already high snow banks.
Children have the day off from school, my husband is working from home,
and I am building fused fabric trees on a teflon sheet on my dining room table.
This will later be lifted up intact and placed on an in-process landscape.
I'm hoping that the different colors will add dimension to the tree.

Outside our front door, the snow has totally blanketed our front walk
and post lamps on each side. This will be a job for the snow blower!

In the backyard, the snow is building up against the fence. The photos
don't capture the swirling snow as it falls, but it is accumulating rapidly.

I hope that all of my blogging friends are cosy and warm,
wherever you are.

Have a wonderful Monday!
