Fabulous Friday Philadelphia Snowfall

This morning we awoke to a beautiful snowfall which has given us about four inches in the last four hours (it’s 8am EST now). We took a quick walk to enjoy the boot-crunching-goodness of first-thing-in-the-morning snow. With little wind, the trees are well-coated; snow always accentuates the lovely shapes of trees. Today's top image is of the butternut tree (Juglans cinerea) over the driveway, an excellent tree and true friend, naturally photogenic in snow.

Just about everything looks good in snow, including our wood fence (built by The Fence Authority of Chester County, Pennsylvania). We’re thankful for our cedar fence (this is its first winter) which allows our husky Blackfoot to enjoy the yard as a good dog should. As you can see, the garden is also segmented, to keep our over-zealous husky out of the vegetables.

Now that it’s lighter outside I plan to go visit the local woods with my camera. More images to follow!

(Blackfoot's Washington buddy The Quilting Doberman posted some righteous pictures of the beautiful snow in the Cascades this January).


  1. Thank you for the reminder that snow can be glorious!

  2. Wren, glad to share. We just love snow!

  3. Great photos... all we have is rain. It makes me miss the Pennsylvania snow-covered winters. But then I remember that the trees are already blooming in Atlanta and I don't feel so bad anymore. :D

  4. Wow, how lovely! The snow is already gone here in BC, hope we get one more good 'pile up' before it's the end of winter. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great to see a Siberian doing what he does best!

    Lucky boy to have good opportunitites in his life.

  6. I love the look of your cedar fence. Your dog must be thrilled. I always like the look of a fresh snowfall and the way the snow just hangs in the trees.
