                         It's morning, still snowing.  It seems I should be singing Jingle Bells instead of Tiptoe Through the Tulips.  The following reflects last night's adventure.


 Tiny comets invade the garden.




City lights provide the glow.



The camera catches the free fall.

    1. Yes, I know, & we really need the moisture, but spring break?

  3. Wow! Your captions are a poem and your photos are simply stunning. It snowed here last night too. My husband says that winter is fighting a losing battle, but hanging on for all it's worth. True. Spring will prevail eventually.

    1. Thanks Mardie. I actually couldn't believe the IPhone caught the snow streaming like that. Yes, I think it's supposed to be in the 50's by Wednesday.

  4. Your photos are brilliant and capture the beauty of the unwanted weather. I'm loving the sunshine today, but I know snow is on it's way tomorrow. :(

    1. So the storm is moving on east, I guess. Still snowing here heavily. Enjoy the sun when you can!

  7. I love the photos! We started spring break here in Indiana, and we are supposed to get snow tomorrow. I hope it's one last chance to enjoy a winter wonderland.

    1. I guess you're getting this storm-moving east, but it's slow, still snowing a bunch here. We have over 10 inches now! Thanks!

  8. What a lot of snow for March! Beautiful photos. We have pretty cold weather here in the D.C. area, very strange because daffodils and cherry blossoms are out!

    1. Thanks Maureen. I hope those cherry blossoms stay safe! Some of our daffodils and other bulbs are out-not after this snow!

  9. Your pictures are beautiful Linda. We are one week away from spring break but not much closer to spring than you are. The ground outside my window is half snow, half brown grass. We did notice today that the tulips are starting to pop through the ground. I hope the weather cooperates for them!

    1. We're supposed to be much warmer mid-week. It will take a while for it all to go, however, & we could get more. This is exactly what happens each year, we yearn for flip-flops & get boots! Thanks, Robin. It was fun going out in the night & taking the photos!

  10. You have done the impossible, Linda, made me long for just one more gorgeous winter's day with those lovely photographs!

    1. It is pretty & I just went out & played a little, then cleaned off the car. It's still snowing a little bit, but I got a head start on the car at least!

  11. Just read Carol's post about her trip to the bank in the snow. And now I'm seeing these photos. Wowzers! I think that's coming our way in a few days!

    1. Maybe it won't get that far, Stacey! It's certainly going to get to my brother in Missouri, though. I don't think you all do, but we desperately need the moisture! Thanks!

  12. Wow, such neat photos, Linda! I think this is heading our way tomorrow... ugh. I can't help but love snow though, even when it's supposed to be spring. It always seems so magical.

    1. It was really pretty, except I suppose for those who had to go out. There wasn't much traffic in my neighborhood for a while. I guess the storm is headed east, you're right. Thanks!

  13. You created a phoem, right? Very cool to catch the comets of snow. Your snow becomes my snow tomorrow. Yes, I am thankful for the moisture, but come on already.

    1. I didn't try to write a poem, really, just described the pics this time, Elsie. I love that term-maybe next time? March is statistically our snowiest month, we're just that far north & high. We'll have great weather then another storm is usually the way spring comes. Sometimes I miss the rain of Missouri, although not those gully washers! Thanks!

  14. Great pictures. They accompany your words nicely. I hope you can tiptoe through something resembling a tulip soon!

    1. Tulips are about halfway up, hurrah. But we've still got some winter left. thanks, Betsy!

  15. What a way to start spring break! Our snow has been disappearing and we are getting + weather finally.
    Hope it clears up soon for you and you have a wonderful break!
    Love your photos - especially the last one!
