Monochrome Monday: Dreaming of a White Christmas


A Photo a Week Challenge: A Change in the Weather

Spring weather can be quite unpredictable. Before heading up this road to Clingman’s Dome the weather was clear and in the 70s. The unpredictability of spring and the sudden rise in altitude created this beautiful winter scene. Once back down the mountain the sweater came off and I again enjoyed a warm spring day.

Spotlight on Florida: Let it snow

You might think being just north of the tropics we wouldn’t have snow but it does snow down here in Florida. But a white Christmas?

So what is this snow? The snowflake, obviously lights, the snow village is more like ice and the falling snow, well that’s actually soap. Although we had fun it didn’t satisfied my desire to see mounds of the fluffy white stuff.

Sunday Nature Quote: Lonely Snow

The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
