    Nice location for Adirondacks

    Beautiful but makes me shiver just looking at it! We’ve just got up and it’s freezing inside the cabin. Time to get a fire going!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, MJ. Brrr… we have a wood stove, too. Hard being the first one up in the morning. 😉
      It is going down to 7F tonight… bitterly cold… the mild days are over, I guess.

  4. Joanne says:

    Oh my goodness – how beautiful! You would rather be sunning yourself in the deck chairs I’m sure, but they look so lovely covered in snow. 🙂

  5. jenanita01 says:

    I love snow and would happily sit there, but wouldn’t want to spoil it!

  6. Good shot. We used to get snow once

  7. I like this picture. Beautiful…

    I LOVE this shot! It’s not only beautiful, but it brings the emotion of nostalgia for summer.

  10. I take it you didn’t feel inclined to sit down in one of those chairs and soak up some rays of sun.

    Summer memories, winter forgetfulness.

  12. Alicia says:

    Your creek looks much more picturesque than the one that borders our property. Development upstream has altered the base flow and flood patterns so that floods are more dramatic and has undermined the roots of the trees lining the creek. Still a lot of wood ducks though.

    You have a lovely view!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Alicia. Sad that unchecked development has such a negative effect. It is unfair to wildlife and those around them.
      I wish we had wood ducks, they are so pretty. We do see mergansers and mallards though.

  13. shoreacres says:

    What an appealing scene! I’d forgo sitting down just to avoid messing up the snow.

  14. This shot reminds me of an old joke I read about why New Englanders leave picnic tables outside in the winter, and the answer was so we could measure the snowfall. 🙂 Happy Wednesday.

    lovely photo taken in a special location

  16. When it’s the dog days of summer and ridiculously humid at 9 a.m., I try to remember winter ( a day like your photo) and be grateful for the heat. And now, I can barely remember summer!

  17. Beautiful brrrr. At 48 degrees people down here are wearing stocking caps.

  18. Very nice Eliza! The last few years we hardly got any snow here in NJ!

  19. Anne says:

    Enjoying the view while patiently waiting for the weather to change!

  20. Great photo Eliza. I love it when snow sits down to take in the view!

  21. Oh, nice! Winter in New England.

  22. Robin says:

    Oh, but your snow is so beautiful. 🙂

  23. Lovely photo. I love the stream running through the snow and the chairs reminiscent of summer filled with snow: the snowy landscape is divine. Eliza you live in a privileged place. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.

  24. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Wow it looks beautiful Eliza! 💙 xxx

  25. Wonderful! Thick and fluffy snow, but what a great view you get from those seats.

  26. Kris P says:

    The photo is wonderful but I had to laugh at the caption! We’re actually looking forward to some cooler temperatures (and no wind!) here.

  27. Val Boyko says:

    The first snows are the sweetest. Or is that kisses… lovely capture Eliza 💛

  28. Debbie says:

    Oh my goodness — all that snow! It’s beautiful to look at, but give me sunshine any day!

  29. DiosRaw - Amber says:

    Gorgeous work. ❤

  30. You obviously got more snow than we did, Eliza. Nothing stuck to the pavement and the next day most was gone from the grassy areas as well. Yours looks nice and fluffy. Your tree reminds me of this Hokusai painting. It’s a favorite of ours, hanging in our house, and when we were courting from afar, we sent Caspari cards daily to each other and itwas the one we sent most often.

  31. Wonderful photo!🙂 Such a perfect spot to enjoy the peaceful scene with a glass of wine in the summer and hot cocoa in the winter.🙂

  32. naturebackin says:

    Such an exquisite scene and the caption is both amusing and somewhat poignant.

  33. gaiainaction says:

    Very beautiful Eliza, so peaceful and pure.

  34. There’s nothing like a fresh snowfall, so pretty. It’s the shovelling that bothers me 😏

  35. ladyfi says:

    Lovely! I’m really wishing for a snowfall right now.

  36. Annette says:

    Such a beautiful scene, Eliza, is this in your garden? It must be wonderful to sit there on a sunny day, cup in hand and enjoy the peace and quiet. In which part of the world do you live?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Annette– yes, our property abuts a small river along which we have walking trails with chairs and benches at scenic spots. This a summer favorite. I live in Massachusetts, US. (New England). Thanks for your visit!

  37. A nice place to sit … all bundled up of course!

    It’s your’s chairs.
