Show & Tell Friday for February 8

For Show & Tell today, I thought I would share all of the beautiful snow we are seeing up here. We got about 6 or 7” in yesterday’s storm, but it amounted to quite a bit on top of all the snow we already had. This is the sort of heavy wet snow that clings to tree limbs. It looks really odd to see several inches of snow just standing atop tree branches. It still looks like that today; the snow is not melting or being blown off by the wind. In addition, we are expecting snow showers most of the day today!

Here's a snow-laden evergreen branch:
The snow is just sitting on top of tree branches:
A snow-covered bush:
Snowy trees:
Snowy treetops:
Next to our front porch:
Snowshoe tracks:
A pileated woodpecker has been busy here:
I think this little bush looks just like a snowflake!

Hope you have enjoyed the show & tell. To see what others have shared, visit There is No Place Like Home and check out the links. Show & Tell Friday is a highlight of my week!


  1. How beautiful! The only snow we have had was about 1/2" last month.

    Have a great week-end.


  2. Being an outdoorsy and tent camping gal myself, I especially enjoyed your photos you shared. I have to say, living in Texas I have to live vicariously through the rest of you!

  3. wow..that is just gorgeous! i love how fresh the snow looks when it first falls!! our snow is kind of icky right now!

  4. I love the snowy beautiful.

  5. I love the last one the best--looks really cool. It has been in the 70's and 80's here--just a very very weird winter!

  6. MrsT, I love your snow. Thanks for sharing with those of us who are longing for a good snowstorm and not likely to get one. That little bush does look like a snowflake!

  7. I TOO thought it looked like a snowflake!!!

  8. BEAUTIFUL! BEAUTIFUL! I am so jealous. I miss the snow so much here in the south.

    It's beautiful -- but I am glad I don't live where it snows a lot. :-D Once or twice a year is good for me. That last picture is just gorgeous -- it does look like a 3-D snowflake.

  13. I love fresh fallen snow, but I think I am getting anxious for warmer weather too.

  14. Loved looking at the snow--very pretty:)


  15. We got hit hard 16+ inches in 24 hours last Wed.,thank goodness we invested in a snowblower. Feel like I live in a snowbank. But when it all melts my lawn and garden will love it!

  16. I love looking at your snow pictures, Mrs. T! It looks so clean and fresh and the little snowflake bush it so sweet!

  17. Beautiful, peaceful photos. I love the one with the delicate branches looking like a snowflake.

  18. Wow, seventeen visitors around my kitchen table to see the snow pictures! It was so nice of you all to stop by. Now we are predicted to get up to another foot of snow tomorrow (Wednesday)...

    Have a wonderful week, everyone!
    God bless,
