    It is a beautiful view out across the wooded hills…you can’t complain too much but when will it end? ๐Ÿ™‚ It doesn’t look like you got as much as the last storm?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Actually, we got 4″ more than the last storm. It was light and fluffy and pretty easy to shovel. The temp rose above freezing about mid-afternoon, so we got the most of it shoveled before then. The rest melted as it fell, thankfully. It still is flurrying now. One does wonder when it will end!

      • Mic. says:

        I guess the reality is that it is only the middle of March…

        We actually got around an inch of snow overnight here in Ohio from the same storm. I think ours was mostly lake effect snow off of Lake Erie but caused by the same circulation around the storm.

    Keep reaching, Beech buds! Spring….in less than a week….I really need Pansies…..sun is doing it’s best to melt about 12 inches of snow…which has buried the Snowdrops.

    Mid-March can bring some of the heaviest snow. My friends in NH got 21in. Stay warm and safe, Spring is coming!

  4. Laurie Graves says:

    Beautiful, but not what we want this time of year.

  5. Widdershins says:

    Winter, the season that just keeps on giving! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. No denying the beauty. Always enjoy the bit of color of beech tree leaves as they hand on thru winter.

  7. Yes, Winter is getting old now and we are all reaching for spring! Beautiful scenes though.

  8. Anne says:

    I really enjoy your last image.

  9. I looks so cold, but your photographs are beautiful.

  10. Ali says:

    They are beautiful photos and beautiful views. I wish you a lovely thaw now.

    Looks like wonderland!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It was magical watching all the snowflakes drifting down the whole day long, lining the branches, coating everything under a deep, fluffy blanket. The woods were definitely a wonderland!

  12. Such a contrast! โ„๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

  13. BRRRRRRR, what is the evergreen?

  14. NorCal Zen says:

    I know you’re tired of the snow, but I’d still take snow before rain ๐Ÿ™‚ Your photos are wonderful!

  15. Magical and beautiful

  16. tippysmom2 says:

    We had a blanket of snow this morning also, but it’s almost all gone tonight. Beautiful pictures.

  17. Indie says:

    At least the snow really is beautiful, though I am so ready for it to be spring! I think we got almost 2 feet the last storm. Your second photo is stunning! I’m glad I found your blog! For some reason when you comment on mine, it doesn’t link to it.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you for finding me. I get your posts via email as our two blog formats are different. I live in western MA, so very close to you. The eastern part of the state has really had it tough this winter.

  18. Itโ€™s spring on Tuesday and your closing winter scenes are lovely!๐Ÿ˜

  19. Rupali says:

    Beautiful photos Eliza.

  20. Looks Christmas-y!

    We had a most excellent development Chez Choppy yesterday – the first of the bulbs poked their heads out of the ground. We have warm temps for the next few days, so I think things are about to get very spring-like!

  21. Val says:

    It makes me sad to see trees and shrubs weighted down with snow, but I know most will pick up again, fine.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      The days are warm enough to melt things and the wind clears the branches. Fortunately, it hasn’t been as bad here as along the coast. We were spared the brunt of these storms. Thanks for your visit, Val!

  22. Kris P says:

    Your scenery remains utterly beautiful but, for your sake, I hope warmer days are coming, Eliza!

  23. Robin says:

    Beautiful scenes, Eliza. โ™ฅ March really has roared this year.

  24. Joanna says:

    LOTS of snow! We are just about buried here!

  25. arlingwoman says:

    Beautiful beech buds! Gorgeous snow, but I imagine you’re ready to be well rid of it. We’ve had a little more than three inches for the course of the winter. I think I’d have liked one storm, but then again…

  26. bittster says:

    Well I guess it is pretty. Please don’t expect me to ‘like’ it though…

  27. albert says:

    Beach buds look angry.
    Can’t blame them though,
    considering.all that snow.

  28. ladyfi says:

    So beautiful!

  29. What a beautiful view you have, Eliza. But I don’t know about you I’m really DONE with snow. Come on, SPRING!!! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน

  30. Maria says:

    Very nice landscapes Eliza!

  31. Jet Eliot says:

    Enjoyed the photos of the landscape, Eliza, and found the “beech buds reaching for spring” especially hopeful and lovely.

  32. Christy B says:

    Beautiful photos BUT I can only imagine the cold (I’m more of a summer gal here) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. naturebackin says:

    The snow is beautiful, but the buds are inspirational!
