Betsy Was Delighted

Our front yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. December 7, 2011.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

If you know anything at all about Betsy, you know how much she loves snow.  It snowed here in the Glade yesterday, and Betsy was in a very happy mood.  She didn’t go out and build a snowman (we didn’t get that much snow), but she did get out to enjoy it.

We had a wet snow that clung to just about everything.  It was what Betsy calls a perfect snow.

It came down pretty heavy for a while and coated  the bare branches of the trees in our yard in a layer of white.

We still have a few more days before Christmas, and we may not have a white Christmas, but the berries on the holly in front of our house looked very festive under all the snow.

I will admit that it was a pretty snow, and I’m glad Betsy’s happy.  Now that she’s had her snow, I’m ready for Spring.

    That is the best kind of snow,one that sticks to everything. We still have bare,drab brown all around. I NEED some snow.

  3. Sandra Says:

    It was a pretty snow. And man o man, did it come down fast! Love the shot with the holly berries!

  5. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    I love snow, too — in limited amounts and for a short period of time, but it is beautiful and your photos have captured the beauty perfectly, George! Hope your week is going well! Stay warm!


  6. Rose Says:

    I would have been delighted, too….we got the one little skim a week or two ago that did not amount to anything.

  7. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    So am I, George! The wreath is so pretty with the snow on it, and i love the red berry bush covered with snow. We were promised about four inches last night and got NONE!! It stayed too warm and was all rain, causing flooding and power outages.

  8. Happyone Says:

    Snow always looks so pretty, but still, i’m glad we just got rain!!

    Hi George – I’m like you. I can’t share Betsy’s enthusiasm for snow. Nice to look at in pictures – ha ha. I would be like you counting the days to Spring!!!!
    What is your count – I think about 85 days of white stuff and then BLISS!!! Oh dear someone is bashing on my door, I think it is dear Betsy with a pickaxe ready to give me a good belt up – ha ha!
    PS: It has stopped raining here – the dazzle from the sun is overwhelming – would you like some ha ha!

    The snow passed us by this time. But we do have much colder weather and lots of black ice this morning.

  11. Gardener on Sherlock Street Says:

    Yea for Betsy!!!!

  12. Carletta Says:

    Lovely winter shots George!
    So happy for Betsy. I think she likes snow as much as I do. We had snow in the forecast but it fizzled before it got this far. My brother got a nice dusting a couple of hours away.

    Oh, how magical! We’re still waiting for a good snowfall over here.

    How lovely snowy photos! I noticed the wreath, so beautiful.

    We got first snow here on Tuesday, the 6th December.

    I love snow as well but I will be honest the memories of last years snowpocalypse are still fresh in my mind! I have told my husband that He cannot travel around those dates this year LOL (It has happened 2 years in a row that we got record breaking snowfall and out of school for a week) but guess what??? They scheduled their meetings in Florida yet again….UGH.

    Your wreaths and Holly bushes are just beautiful and sooo festive 🙂
    Have a blessed weekend!

  16. Neal Says:

    I’m glad Betsy got her snow. I’ll be honest…I think snow pictures are beautiful BUT I don’t like to deal with the slick roads or the mess afterwards.

  17. Linda Gross Says:

    That is more snow than we have received this season. We’ll get ours one day soon, I am sure!

  18. Linnea Says:

    I call that perfect snow too…it’s just the right amount for adding something special to photos. Your shots looks so very festive! It would be fun to get another round of snowflakes on Christmas!
