Snow Toes !

I snapped these pictures a couple of days ago when we had more miserable weather .. it is my neighbor's roof , yet again ! .. I have a fixation because it GLARES at me in front of my kitchen sink .. hard to escape it ! ..
I just thought .. for an instant mind you .. these look like toes and claws .. old man winter is dangling his feet at me .. now how BOLD is that ?

It does look like toes! We only get snow here about once per year. And it melts before it hits the ground. I'm sure it will go away for the season soon.

Hi GardenJoy4Me,
I found your blog from Doug's forum. Thanks for posting it. I see I have a kindred spirit with all the garden accoutrements (very cute-- love your gargoyle!). I also love your photographs; they are so bright and compelling!
I also had to post a comment because your cat, Sophie, looks very similar to my Suki. I adopted her last August-- the vet says she is a lynx point Siamese, but she also has little white patches of fur on her toes and snout. I was very excited to see another lynx point. I have not seen many.
I look forward to your future posts!

Oh no, I don' t like it - I want SPRING!! I need flowers, fresh leaves, blue sky and a lot of colors in my garden, not only white!
And I wish you the same.
Have a great weekend Wurzerl

Very unusual. I would try to figure every day what different form it took since yesterday. I've got to figure out some clever way to add privacy to my master bath tub---it has a picture window over it and my neighbor looks right in to it from her kitchen window--lol. Now imagine the pics she could take---we'll don't imagine!! I'm going to plant some dense tree there like Holly--before we move in.

Hi Brenda
Well .. I woke up to about 4 or 5 MORE inches this morning .. it is heavy and wet and maybe it might melt sooner than later ? JEEZ ! LOL

Wow ! thank you for posting and telling me about your Lynx Point too ! .. We bought Sophie almost 2 years ago at a petshop .. we fell in love with her as a tiny kitten .. she is a mix of Main Coon, Himalayan with dominate Siamese (her attitude is total Siamese .. haha) .. I'm so glad to hear about some one else with this unusual type cat ! Please keep in touch and perhaps I can see a picture of your little one too ?

Oh Wurzel .... me too ! I'm so sick of this winter. It feels like it has been here for years instead of months .. ROLL ON Spring ! LOL

Anna .. I'm laughing here ! .. I stood on a chair in front of our deck door to take pictures this morning .. now picture this ..middle aged(plump?) woman with bed head standing on chair for all of the back neighborhood to see, taking pictures .. hum .. maybe your bathroom view isn't so bad ? LOL
