After two days of snow the freezing rain began, this is the last rose-bud I had, a Henry Fonda heat loving variety. I thought it looked rather unhappy, eh? If you can enlarge, it is more interesting.

This is a vase I have on my deck, now filled with snow, looks like a snow-cone or a coffee drink with whip cream on top.

When we got our first snow we had our granddaughter take this picture of my wife Sue and I thinking the snow may melt off. Hardly....

Hello Fred :)

Lovely photos! Sitting here I can actually see what is happening there. Snow dictates life.

I am particulary thrilled to see you and your wife. Both of you look very grand, cheerful, happy and posing like royalties.

You look very stylish and handsome and your wife gorgeous, dignity and grace personified. Both of you are not bothered about snow and the adverse climate has not dampened your enthusiasm for life and happiness. Amazing photo!

I'm glad you shared this fantastic photo.

Wish you both a wonderful Christmas full of joy and happiness.

Hi Joseph,
You make me blush and laugh. Posing like royalties :)
You are too kind, I agree with you about Sue being gorgeous, but I may need some improvement on the "dignity and grace" part :)
It is still snowing, and actually it is the deepest snowfall in over twenty years, I think 11" is the record and we are at about 9"
Now I have to say in some parts of the U.S. this is considered a spring day, they get many feet of snow, but for Portland Oregon, this is big news!
God bless,

Hi Mel,
Thanks for your comments, and bye the way, how much snow have you had? Last I heard it was 20" but that was two days ago.
I get to stay home today so it is a blessing!
There is nothing so demonstrates the purity of Christ like a fresh deep snowfall, amen?

Hi Mary,
I just went to your site, so, how many inches of snow have you had there?
Country living, makes my heart leap and then turn green with envy :)
Love Fred

Hi Fred! I think we've had at least 26 inches so far, but that's my own estimate, not the official tally. It's a beautiful, white world, and yes, there are almost infinite spiritual applications and illustrations tied to it. My heart is fuller than full. :)

Fred, Thanks for viewing my site. We have only had like 3 inches. We do not get as much snow as one would assume living in a higher elevation. Lots of hugs Mary
