A Sweet Sprinkling...

...of surprise snow!  This is the planter on our chimney- the one I showed you full of flowers last summer.  Mike cut the holly from the back yard and placed it here way back in early December.  The red berries were so festive for the holidays- who knew he had such decorating prowess?!
So on Monday, when the unpredicted snow showers came through, I was so glad we hadn't "undecorated" this part of the house.  We ended up getting about an inch of accumulation on the grass.  Yes, I know you people in Ohio and Michigan and other places north are snickering.  But, it's the first snow we've seen this season, and when it doesn't cause trouble on the roads or with power lines it is sooooo beautiful.  I had a perma-grin all day long!
