A walk around my neighborhood
A day off and fresh fallen snow, the perfect opportunity to take a walk around my neighborhood and snap a few shots.
I like seeing remnants of Christmas decorations, especially in the snow. We're so busy at holiday time we often miss our own neighbors decorations. So I took them all in today.
I think blue houses look so pretty in the snow.
This is my favorite house on the street. It's a Gothic cottage and it was once a train station. I actually was interested in buying this house some years ago, but,
it was too pricey for me. It's funny that I ended up buying a condo on the same street.
An icy lantern in the front yard of the gothic cottage.
Another shot of the cottage. I do love window boxes. Sadly, there are none at my condo. Actually I kill plants and flowers.
Even the porch screens had snow on them.
I just love how the neighborhood looks when it snows. Everything looks so small, almost cozy in a way. You would think it would be feel colder after it snows but sometimes it's just the opposite. Once the storm is over it usually warms up and the air is clean and refreshing. It's quiet except for the crackling of the snow beneath my feet.
I'm already looking forward to the next storm!
