Snow on marjoram, barberry and fig.

God your hands made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn your commandments.

Psalm 119 : 73,74.
Marjoram still in summer green hanging over the wall on the left of the birdbath with Japanese barberry on the right.
Little clumps of snow stick on and between the small leaves of these plants making them fat with its cover.

With every falling flake, a unique spark of interest falls from heaven.

Figs.
Snowed under?
This expression was first used in 1888 when a journalist described a scene where a blizzard had completely covered people, cars and houses. Snowed under is also used now when we are overwhelmed with work or if like me your spam box for Word Press is inundated.
I think the figs are just carefully
snow capped.
Bottle brush with spiky leaves dipped in snow.
A heat loving plant
with long, red brushes for flowers in the summer.
The snow now adhering well to the thin pointed leaves because of our low temperatures.

Snowflakes are pretty patterns etched in water’s dreams.

Snowflakes I wish! Icicles I think!

Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice.

If you are experiencing cold with a little snow like we are, take care and keep warm. Thank you for looking at this post.

  1. Sandy are you going to give the Bottlebrush a little brush? I am sure it will ask nicely for a shake maybe! Missing the warmth it needs🤪🤣Keep warm yourselves
    Snow and icicles are beautiful though👏

  2. We don’t live where it snows and I’m so fascinated by your photos! We drive to visit, but we don’t get to see the beauty you’ve captured here. Stunning work.
