Dogwood in the Snow

After a weekend with sun and temperatures in the 40s, days that found JT outside in shorts and the rest of us feeling like Spring is truly just around the corner, this morning Winter reminded us who is still the boss.   Dawn brought snow.  The flakes are small but it’s falling fast.  The National Weather Service is calling for 8 inches by the end of the day.  We have the day off from school.  Just a few minutes ago, I took the opportunity to step out on the back deck and make some pictures of the dogwood with snow on its slender branches.
The white snow against the dark branches looks like delicate lace.  Cold and shoveling chores not withstanding, it really is lovely outside.
