First Snow



such a lovely surprise to wake
to 
the first snow


to slip on boots
and 
head out to be part of the snow clad morning


it is all melted now
but
I am left with a reminder to get autumn chores completed
before winter arrives

    1. IT seems early, but we often get a snow around now. It does not stay.... thank goodness, not quite ready in a number of ways.

  3. Here in Spain, this year we are more delayed than other years, has not yet entered the autumn´s temperatures, summer is giving its last sighs.
    Have a good one, Tammie!.

    1. I am guessing autumn will be welcome with your hard summer of fires.

  5. I love that you still have some fall color, too! Yes, that first snow a couple weeks ago here in Breck had us scrambling! This week and next sunshine here - I like it!

    1. Yes, scrambling can happen. Still have more to do, but looks like some decent weather is coming in a couple of days.
      I love the snow on the fall colors. So pretty.

    1. Indeed a reminder. More snow arrived last night, it also is melting away. More chores to address.

  9. Your house looks beautiful, and even more special in the snow. It reminds me of my father's house that we inherited last year. We hope to be moving there in about a year's time.

  10. It's beautiful Tammie Lee...this is just around the corner for us too. I really do love where you live, love your home. Actually Alex and I high-tailed it in the yard and garden today to prep for winter because we're already having a lot of frosty nights. We left it later than we wanted this year, but got it all done! All five dogs watching us the whole time lol! Things really are getting easier with them day by day thankfully! And not a peep from their owner for the last week, sigh...our gain, his loss right?

    1. I love where I live too ;-)
      Fun that you got out and got your chores done. Such a good feeling.
      I am glad that you all are adjusting to your larger family.
      Sounds like their owner has moved on.

  16. Bonsoir chère amie,

    Oh oh !! déjà ! j'ai l'impression que c'était hier ! Que les beaux jours passent vite !... Je ne sais pas si moi je supporterais de cohabiter avec la neige aussi longtemps ! Pourtant je reconnais que c'est très beau mais c'est froid !! sourire...
    Merci pour les belles photos.
    Gros bisous 🌸

    1. Oui, il fait déjà froid ici, mais la neige s'est emportée dans ma forêt. Les montagnes sont enneigées et belles. Oui, certaines personnes font mieux par temps chaud.

  17. Dear Tammie - First snow is so exciting to us regardless of our age. Your place is a wonderland with the dusting of snow. The gold yellow adds special ambience different from the monochrome-like winter snow-scape.

  18. You had your first snow already, how wonderful. Love this picture of the bridge and the Autumn tree in the distance, Tammie Lee. You live in such a beautiful area, and it is a dream of mine to live in the mountains someday, or at least have a place to retreat there. : )

    1. Hi Sheri,

      Yes it arrived and melted away, two days in a row.
      We are back to greenish grass and autumn colors with beautiful light and long shadows. Not quite ready for winter.
      It is very beautiful here and living in this wee cabin is a dream come true. Perhaps your dream will come true some day as well.
