December Snow and roses

Tuesday morning the snow was falling but by the time I got to work there was none to be seen.  Wednesday morning we had a heavier wetter snow fall and this is what it looked like at about 0830 in the morning.  I'm standing under the awning at the front door looking up the drive.
 Looking in the opposite direction.
 Some red berries being covered in snow.  Look how big the snowflakes look when caught by the camera flash!
 Just after ten i went for a bit of a slippery walk around the parking lot and looked back at the main entrance to the hospital.
 Those red berries in the wet heavy snow.
 Some pink winter flowering forsythia.
 Appropriately one of our clerks Judy, brought us some lovely snow decorated cookies to enjoy.
 Yesterday I came across these lovely painted windows.
 What a lovely job this painter does.
 Red rose still trying to bloom on December 22nd!
 Some pink ones keeping him company.
 Someone decided to make the pampas grass look festive for the season.
The snow is still around at higher elevations, but at river's side is it pretty much gone.
