Snowy morning view

Snow Flurries on the River

Our first snow arrived last week. Traces of snow disappear within a few days, if not the same day, so we grab the camera and slip outside on our first opportunity! The temperature gets down to 10 degrees for only a few weeks in December or January, therefore we are able to grow our pomegranate tree because the rest of the winter is relatively mild.  An average winter here will see one or two snowfalls. Here are some of the photos I snatched last week after receiving our first snow.

Barge on a snowy day

The ferry-boat passed early and motivated me to step outside before the steps were cleared. It’s the first time I have captured a photo of a barge covered in snow.


Snowy morning view

Snowy morning view from the kitchen nook catches the lights on the bridge before the sun comes up. 


Bridge view in the snow

Four hours later the temp is still well below freezing, but the warmth of the bricks is melting the snow.


Geometric patterns in the snow

Brick borders on the patio warm the snow and create geometric patterns.


River view in the snow

One more river view shot showing some of the brick melting the snow into geometric patterns.


Rosemary and wheelbarrow in the snow

Rosemary and the antique wheelbarrow dusted with a couple inches of snow.


Fountain in the snow

The fountain area sprinkled with snow. Boxwood really stands out in the winter. I love the foundation it gives the garden. Note the old garden roses still have green leaves in this single digit weather!


Bridge in the Snow at Dawn

Misty trails of water vapor greet dawn the following day.


Winter sunrise

The sunrise illuminates a cloud created by vapor from the steam plant. We enjoy this view from the kitchen sink, our kitchen nook and dining room windows. So blessed!

Temps are going to be warm for the next 10 days, up to 70 degrees! I love mild winters. I know there will be more freezing days to come, but will purpose to enjoy each season and the joy that it brings!

Happy January everyone!

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11

    “Misty trails of water vapor greet dawn the following day”………I love the photo and these special descriptives that you wrote under it. I love the view and perspective from your eyes and from your perch beside the Arkansas. The rose garden is stunning in this winter contrast. No one could steward your place on the river better and with more grace than you and your sweetheart do. This sharing of it all is such a blessing.

    The snow lasts for such a short time there….you captured such beautiful photos of it!

      Yes, one of the best and worst things about living in the South is the short winter season. I do love the perspective and beauty of new fallen snow.
      Sending warm hugs,

I'd love to hear your thoughts
