52 Photos Project – Week 36 :: nature’s gifts

It’s the second week of January and around my neck of the woods, winter has hit with a vengeance. I’ve had a few interesting drives to & from work. (or perhaps, nerve-wracking would be a better description). In the past three days, we have had over 2 feet of snow.

Along with the dangers of extreme cold and of course, winter driving, there is much beauty. I love how the world looks with that pretty white frosting.

Today was a snow day for me. This morning the weather was pretty scary but it did clear for a bit in the afternoon. I braved the cold for some pretty shots. Here are my “nature’s gifts”:

You can see the evidence of the wind & blowing snow; here it has blown a drift across our little creek.

A wondrous snow drift in our garden. Just 4 days ago there was bare ground. That drift is just over 3 feet deep.

As I turned to go back to the house, I spied the next squall bearing down on us.

…and so it begins again…


Don’t forget to go to Bella’s blog to see what others have contributed.

Thanks for visiting, and stay warm if you’re in the northern hemisphere.

Until next time, Connie 😃❄️


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
