Side-by-Side - Good Fences

Thunderous no more Thursday and side-by-side 

I spent yesterday pretending to be snowed in.  Although, where I live we're never snowed in for very long.  
So these photos are what's side-by-side my fencing on this day after the storm.

It happens like this-
Never fear where angels tread.

"The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before."
Neil Gaiman

Afternoon sunshine delight.

Catch a smile- and throw one back.

Just a pale pink glow to the sky as morning presses on.

Believe it or not, this is the first snow this winter
 that's remained on fencing and everything else for that matter!

I'm not kidding- breakfast on the deck for two!

Forever-Bunny-hunter through and through.
It's the chase Misty loves most.

Where oh where is the Grinch, 
with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow. 
Oh where could he be?

I do enjoy a good storm, a cold icy wind blowing and howling while it rustles through trees as if it's about to tell you a story.

Even better is the morning after a storm.  When golden sunlight falls around you as if it never happened.

So far as yet, no gigantic Snowzilla here in Minnesota.

I hope you're all safe and enjoying winter but also, dreaming of spring.

Hello, cute post and images. I am throwing a smile you way. Looks too cold for breakfast on the deck. I see we could be expeting more snow here Monday into Tuesday. I hope not! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

such a cute post - I smiled all the way through - especially when I knew that I didn't have to go out in the snow to enjoy it - thank you!

Really cute company at your place & beside the fences! I love that snowman candle!
The light catching the snow is so pretty!

Very cute your post!

Loved your post Karen, very cute photos too. Looks like you got the same amount of snow we did but ours is just about gone from the paths and the deck now. There are still big piles of the stuff around, that will take a while.

You are so creative! Love your fence characters and the "bunny hunter."

Great pictures. I love the quirkiness of the Cat in the Hat and the snowmen. Please be safe in the snow.

OOOH. Snow.
Love the Angel's butt - and Neil Gaiman is always awesome.


How utterly FUN!!! I so enjoyed this. It's a toss up between the cat in the hat and the cold butt cheeks of the angel!

I like the Grinch!

Very cute pictures! I like seeing your snow.

Hello Karen!:) A wonderful creative post once again, and I love the first picture of the cherub looking out over the snow, and the snowman candle in the winter sun. I wonder,... if Misty ever catches a bunny in the snow!:)

Hi Karen, it's snowing in D.C. right now!

But not a blizzard like last time, and it's too warm to stick. Which is good, because the snow from before hasn't all left yet (although most of it has melted).

Always enjoy seeing your little people!

Very well done!

Grace said...

Liking all the pictures ~ You have so much snow there ~ Thankfully the ones here have melted ~

What fun to pretend you are snowed in and you're inside where it's cozy. LOVE that cheerful snowman candle in the afternoon light.

That's a lot of snow but your dog seems to enjoy it.

Lovely images. The snow is always good for those dramatic shadows.
