Snowy Days- #SundayStills #Photography


Terri Webster Schrandt is traveling to her new home this week, so the Sunday Stills Photography Challenge is hosted on Cats and Trails and Garden Tales. Stop by to see the pictures and join in here.

We don’t see a lot of snow (except from a distance!) on southern Vancouver Island, but every now and then…

The poor plants bowed under the weight of this surprise snowfall.

A bit chilly for a full-time RVer!

Pinwheel palms. The snow is so big and flaky you can see the shapes!

The trees look pretty with their dusting of white.

Sharp contrast between the blue sky and gray, snowy branches.

I’ve never seen snow roll itself up before!

This one comes from my daughter in Newfoundland. Now they get snow!

    I know someone who does their yard like this…well I don’t really know them other than they used to live across the street from me. The gentleman designs and cuts out all of the Disney figures on wood and makes a huge display every holiday season. Every year he adds new characters. It’s pretty cool.

    I was surprised to see all that snow Jacquie. I guess once in a blue moon. I love that picture from your daughter. I didn’t realize that you had a child living on the opposite side of the country from you.

    1. Yes, we rarely get that kind of snowfall, and when we do it’s gone in a day or two. So different from Alberta where I grew up!
      She moved there three years ago to continue her studies in marine biology. We miss them so much!

    That’s some serious snowfall, Jacquie. It reminds me of where I grew up in the Dakotas.

    Wonderful pics, Jacquie! Here we don’t get snow very often (hardly ever), so it looks lovely. Take care!

    Gorgeous pics Jacquie. I too have never seen snow rolll up like this before and I was raised in the U.K. The last time I saw snow this thick was when I was in the U.K. 2 years ago. Love it as long as I dont have to go out in it every day. Lol….

  12. I love this photo your daughter sent you, Jacquie! My daughter in Portland went to play in the snow two days ago. My eight months old granddaughter had the fire sledding experience. We don’t have snow in southern CA. 🙂
