Oh! the snow ...

 Oh! the snow,
the beautiful snow,
 filling the sky and the earth below.
 Over the housetops, over the street,
over the head of people you meet.
 Dancing, flirting, skimming along.
~J.W. Watson~

 
When I took my camera outside to take some snowy garden photos, I noticed a few buds opened on the French Pussy Willow :-)  We had a nice snowfall yesterday, leaving the garden covered in a blanket of white.  Not sure how long it will last though as it is mild today and the sun is beaming!
