Snowy Surprise.

Yesterday morning I woke up to grey skies and a skiff of snow in the courtyard.
 Almost 24 hours later and there is a winter wonderland outside my condo.  This arrived overnight and was a delightful surprise.
 Looking at the waterfall pool in our courtyard.
 Snow on the palm trees.
 What a lovely lacy effect on the trees.
 Looking over the gate into the courtyard.
 Walking east along the Fraser River.
 More lacy trees.
 The yellow witch hazel covered in snow.
 The orange witch hazel buried in snow.
 This looks like a spider emerging from the snow.
 The curly willow making some interesting designs...maybe inspiration for some stippling designs.
 Beauty berry covered in snow.
 Melting snow on the berries.
 Snow melting in the sunshine.
 Pincushion daisies showing their sunny side.
 Cyclamen weathering the snow.
 Witch hazel emerging from the melting snow.
 Walking west along the boardwalk.  They say we'll get some more snow tonight or tomorrow.
Winter flowering forsythia.
 Love the contrast against the sky.
 Bravely trying to bloom.
Slowly melting in the sunny skies.
 Roses still putting forth blooms.
 Winter white!

Great pictures Sandi. Keep warm while I try to keep cool with the hot weather we are having in Victoria, Australia. Regards, Nessie

Beautiful! What a neat view you have from your window.
I don't think we will get any snow this year. Been pretty warm for wintertime here in NC.
