    Your snow looks just like sugar to me! Of course, snow is so uncommon in my life, I did once have a problem recognizing just what those flakes were falling from the sky onto our car windshield.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It does! Dry snow and fine sand (as well as sugar, I reckon), share the same granular quality. If you’ve walked on the beach, I’d say it is similar to walking in snow (except the temp has to be colder than a SoCal beach!). Wet snow is different, clumping (snowman snow) or mushy, like mashed potatoes. When it comes to shoveling, I MUCH prefer powder! Do you ever visit the San Gabriel’s or Big Bear in winter?

    This beautiful picture reinforces that less can often be more. ๐ŸŒŸ

  4. Bun Karyudo says:

    This one looks even colder than the previous photograph. That poor little plant must be freezing. It’s not even wearing a scarf.

  5. Well, that photo says a lot… IT’S COLD!!!

  6. Trini Lind says:

    Poetic and peaceful โค

  7. smallsunnygarden says:

    Very beautiful – love the different textures in the snow!

  8. Now this shot would make for a truly maddening jigsaw puzzle, even more than mine! Nice photo, Eliza ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Denzil says:

    So simple and effective.

  10. jenanita01 says:

    I love snow, the crisp clean purity of it instils calm and peace…

  11. Like a Japanese painting

  12. Kathy Sturr says:

    Oh my, that feels so cold Eliza! It is winter today in CK – 36ยฐ!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Oh, my, do you have clothing for those temps? All those poor tropical plants! They must be in shock.

      • Kathy Sturr says:

        I do have clothing – socks and slippers because I’ve learned there actually is a few days of winter here occasionally. The first year we stayed here for a few months I was a little cold. Winter is over now, though. The plants seem fine. I think they covered up the community garden but really peas, spinach, kale would be fine in those temps. I did bring a couple of my houseplants indoors. Single digits! Too cold for me anymore – stay warm Eliza! I used to just drink tea all day long to try to stay warm.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Don’t you feel so much better when I tell you what you are missing? ;-D

      • Kathy Sturr says:

        I always check the weather in Clayton. I am grateful every day to be here!

  13. Brian Skeys says:

    Crystal clean snow. I can see what Derrick means, ikebana.

  14. LOVE the simplicity in this one, Eliza! Great job with the framing. Beautiful!! โค

  15. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Almost like a sand dune but snow. Beautiful!

  16. Laurie Graves says:

    Derrick got it just right. I especially like the pattern in the snow.

  17. Reblogged this on A Dose of Inspiration and commented:
    I love how this photo conveys strength, perseverance, determination….this little plant just keeps right on going even through the storms, the coldness, the desolation. So life affirming! My theme for this new year! ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Love the texture you captured in this composition. Your title is appropriate considering the sound dampening properties of snow. I look forward to experiencing again the silver silence of a fresh country snow fall.

  19. Gorgeous picture! Our snow is slowly evaporating away. Now that it’s leaving, we’re getting more tomorrow. But you know what that means – it’s warm enough to snow tomorrow! So exciting!

  20. Pristine scene. Winter at its best!

  21. When I saw this it reminded me how beautiful simplicity can be. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” โ€“ Leonardo Da Vinci

  22. rickii says:

    Looks almost like beach grass in the sand.

  23. MK says:

    Looks like the beach to me also, but I’m educated-guessing not.

  24. ladyfi says:

    Wonderful shot.

  25. No matter where…life.
