30 days of Photographs IV: Soft

Day 3 –  Soft

30 days of Photographs is hosted by MikeWJ and Ziva.

Just a reminder of winter for you. It’s still a way off yet, thankfully. I love the soft fresh snow, before it freezes or becomes all slushy and dirty. Unfortunately, we tend to get cut off in the snow, so need to have plenty of milk and food stored for those occasions.

soft, reminder of winter, snow

    A reminder of what’s just around the corner! Sigh. You know the old “rule” about not wearing white after Labour Day? Maybe we could make a new rule about not posting winter pictures until… never! Even if it is soft. :-)

      But you know I don’t follow rules and we don’t have Labour Day in the UK. Besides, I quite like winter :)

      • mikewjattoomanymornings

        Me, too, Babs.

    I remember a really “dry” snow we got in Connecticut on year. Softest snow ever.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      It’s so pretty when it’s soft and fluffy.

    Brrrr! Winter will be here soon enough.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      This photo is just a memory. I’m not even thinking of the winter yet ;)

    “Besides, I quite like winter :)”

    Amen, Babs! As you know, I do as well.

    AWESOME photo for this theme, my friend :)

    *two thumbs up*

    X to you and Mo!

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I knew you’d like a winter reminder, Ron :)

    I never thought I’d say this but “What Nicky said”.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I claim ignorance, as this is my first attempt at this challenge. I don’t know the unspoken rules yet ;)

  • http://artofbeingconflicted.com Cheryl P.

    I love the soft pretty snow. I don’t want 4 or 5 foot of it mind you but just a nice soft winter snow is so beautiful.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Thank goodness for that! I was beginning to think I would upset everyone with this photo ;)

    “I love the soft fresh snow, before it freezes or becomes all slushy and dirty.”

    ME TOO! I cannot wait for winter and the 1st snowfall!

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I love when I see the fist snowfall. I will try and get out in it this year, before we get snowed in.

      • http://mommamiameaculpa.com/ meleahrebeccah

        Good idea!

  • mikewjattoomanymornings

    That’s just mean, Babs. Poor Ziva, of Finland, will probably burst into tears when she sees this. Winter’s already started there.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I hadn’t thought about that. Sorry Ziva :)

      • http://zivainferno.blogspot.com Ziva

        I’m crying now. This is what my yard will look like next week.

        • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

          I’m ashamed to say that I hadn’t thought about Finland being a cold country. How bad am I? Wipe your eyes and laugh at me :)

          • http://zivainferno.blogspot.com Ziva

            Hah! I don’t think anyone ever really thinks about Finland, period. ;) But yeah, it’s a cold place. Freezing winters, cold springs, colder autumns, and warm two-week summers.

          • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

            Oh my word! Move to England ;)

  • http://www.doorinface.com/ Nora Blithe

    What’s that white stuff? Man, I’m glad I live in a place where I don’t need a snow shovel.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      But snow is lovely, when you dress for it :)

  • ReformingGeek

    Right now I’m thinking snow ice cream!

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Now that sounds lovely!

  • http://decksidethoughts.blogspot.com Cheryl

    YOU ARE ONE SICK WOMAN! EEK! I hate snow more than I hate these challenges & that’s a lot.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Oh, I’m so sorry to upset you, but I love snow :)

      • http://decksidethoughts.blogspot.com Cheryl

        Are you the Devil?

        • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

          Ha ha ha! I’m an angel :)

  • http://thinkspin.com/ Lauren

    It does look soft. But it’s cold and slippery, too. I don’t want to be reminded of something wicked this way comes. Great shot, btw.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I promise, it’s the only winter shot. Actually, this wasn’t a winter shot, but taken earlier this year :)

  • Jackal

    shiver me timbers !! Janine tosses snow all over Babs.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Ha ha! Babs falls down and makes an angel in the snow :)

  • http://www.weworkforcheese.com/ mike

    Nice. Reminds me that I have to get my skis sharpened.

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      That’s something I would like to have done. Not sharpen your skis, but ski.

  • Comedy Plus

    Snow is pretty, but I don’t want to live in snow country. It’s an event to go anywhere. Just don’t care for that.

    Have a terrific day. ?

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      I can remember praying for snow as a kid. We didn’t get enough of it, for my liking.

  • http://www.shoot-me-now.com Katherine Murray

    I can actually see the fluff in the soft snow! So pretty! I am a bit jealous… although I love our beach, we don’t get much snow because of it, if ANY! I’m sure you may get tired of it after a while but we would be THRILLED for a few days of it. Pretty!

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Do you know? I never get tired of it. I loved it as a child and I still love it. The only down side is when we get shut in our home for days, until the roads clear. Of course that doesn’t happen every time it snows.

  • http://www.astarinmyownuniverse.com/ Traci Shannon

    I have to admit that I am jealous. I lived a year in New York and miss the snow terribly. This is especially true now in the middle of a Texan August summer heat wave — that’s a mouthful, isn;t it?

      I don’t think I could live in a hot place, but I suppose we are acclimatised to where we live. I like summer, but I do like my winters too ;)

  • http://www.stubbornfool.com/ Shawn Ohara

    I heart almost froze when I saw that! I am in denial that summer is over.
    :)
    Captures the theme nicely

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Oh, I am in denial too! This is the first good summer we’ve had for a while and I don’t want it to end yet.

  • MalisaHargrove

    Snow. Beautiful, fluffy, soft, white snow. We never see that in Texas. Sometimes we can sleet balls that people think is snow. No one can drive in snow in Texas. Can I come visit you in the winter?

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      You could, but be prepared to be snowbound in England until the thaw, if it’s bad ;)

  • http://howtobecomeacatladywithoutthecats.blogspot.com/ Paula Larew Wooters

    NOOOO! Too soon for snow!

    • http://beetle-blog.com/ babs (beetle)

      Yes, definitely too soon :)
