Unexpected Pleasure

Pleasure is very seldom found where it is sought. Our brightest blazes are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.

You have shown the pretty side of the snow,with this picture.

Gorgeous. The red is so rich in the snow and yet so fragile or tender looking. We are expecting snow on Sunday. As much as I'm not in love with more snow this year, I'm looking forward to capturing some images like yours. My crocuses are blooming and with any luck, I'll be able to get them in snow. Nice post

There's beauty in every day when we look for it. Love the capture of falling snow.

The snow rests upon the branch, testament to nature calls the shots.

Great photo and I love the quote..."unexpected sparks". Indeed!

Thank you!

Appalachian Lady said...

I knew you would get a great photo of the snow and the quote fits it perfectly. Guess the freeze last night wiped out the blooms of the red maple then.

Oh Kerri, this is a most fabulous post! Lovely image and wonderful quote. Visiting your blog is a daily dose of delight for me. Thank you for sharing such beauty.

That's a beautiful shot! Much better than the one I got of snow on the maple buds.
We had a similar scene yesterday but our weather has gone nuts;snow yesterday morning, all melted by nightfall, frost so heavy last night I could hear Buddy's paws crunching on the grass from 20 yards away, sunny and 60 degrees this afternoon! Come on spring!

Catherine said...

Well... it really is pretty isn't it? We received some fat fluffy flakes this morning too.

I love the red in your photo ~ it just pops!!
xo Catherine
