First Snow for SOOCS

Friday morning we woke up to a white world…the first snowfall of the season.   It wasn’t a lot of snow but it did cover the ground.   By mid morning the sun had melted most of it away.   I guess we can be sure that a lasting one will come along in the not too distant future.   Time to get the snow tires out of the shed.
Snowy Gerbera 10-22
I have a container by the front door with gerbera daisies and flowering kale in it.   It did not suffer too much.  Once the snow melted it was fine.    I am posting this to Straight Out of the Camera Sunday hosted by Jan.    Come on over and see other photos that have not been edited.   A crop is okay.   Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.   Valerie

OH it makes me cold!! I love the excitement of the first snow and love it on the red gerber.
thanks for sharing.
Hi Val, We have had snow before Halloween and snow for Mother Day's. That leaves only 6 months without snow, yuck.

Oh, first snow yesterday! We haven't received any in Edmonton yet but other parts of Alberta have. However, it is forecast within the next few days. It will likely last about as long as yours, I hope.

I guess it's about that time of year, for you. Love the photo. Happy late Birthday, too.

You and your daisies seem to have a good attitude about the snow - charming photo!

I am not ready for snow yet! It does make for a pretty contrast on the daisy!

No snow for us yet, but it certainly is wet and chilly. I've got an appointment to have the snow tires put on the van on Monday morning. We have been known to have snow for Hallowe'en.
What a simply gorgeous shot. We don't get snow here so seeing this is a treat for me.

Beautiful! We get snow here maybe once every 10 years. :(
I enjoyed your photo, and am glad it was at your place, and not mine. We have frequently had some snow by now, but are enjoying a mild fall so far. It looks like we may have a frost or freeze by the end of the week, though.
Snow on a Gerbera Daisy is amazing!!!
Gorgeous shot!!!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
