February 8th Popcorn Snow

Well, even though I love the look of snow, since this is our third one in 3 weeks, I’d like to see the ground again. I call this one the “popcorn” or “cotton candy” snow because of the way it lays on the tree branches and bushes. With the wind chill it is about 15° today, so I didn’t linger outside long. Had to feed the birds at 3 different stations and check to see if any of our plants were damaged. Too soon to tell. Enjoy the  photos. Think warm thoughts.

The flowering dogwood looks like it is blooming in the winter.
