Yesterday, Indianapolis was blessed with about 4″ of snow.  I don’t think we received as much where I live, but there was no wind and it was lovely.


I love this shot – mostly a black, white and gray image with the pop of reddish brown from this maple tree that thinks it’s an oak.  It never sheds its old leaves until the new spring leaves push them off the branches.  This is the Wall of China line along the south line of our property.


This is on the other side of that line above.  This wee bit of property is a bit of a wilderness, but I love it.  There is always something new popping up – asparagus in the spring, and now there are several yucca plants that appeared over the summer that I am going to transplant into my yard next spring.


And there is this cedar tree.  I remember my mom seeing it and telling me to get rid of it because – well because she hated cedar trees.  I love them, though.  I love how they look both in the summer and covered with snow in the winter.  I love how they smell.  This tree is a friend and she’s a good listener.

I love snow falls like this one.  Soft, gentle, wet and just lovely.
