Flakes of feathered snow ...

Only Ernie & I were awake when we spotted the first flakes of feathered snow early this morning. Sitting by the kitchen window with a hot cup of tea, we watched as the tiniest of flakes danced about.
I know Ernie was as excited as I was to see the flakes fall even if they didn't last very long.


This is Ernie last year
doing his "happy dance"
in the snow :-)
When he first arrived in December of last year, we had no snow here . He arrived from Quebec where they had many feet of the fluffy white stuff ... I think he missed it :-)
When he spoke
what tender words he used!
So softly, that like
flakes of feathered snow
they melted
as they fell

What wonderful photos of Ernie enjoying the snow. While you have had your first flakes, I'm sitting in shorts and flip flops ;-)
