Snowy Sunrise

The tablecloth divas are working on a special four way 'scape for you for later this week. In the meantime, here's a little snowy sunrise for Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper.

During the storm~

See the snow buildup on the Northeast side of the deck? The squirrel feeder is transformed into a snow mushroom. Yes, we were well on our way to an 18" total. The snow was falling at a rate of about 4" per hour when I shot these.

Too cold for kitties!

White out at the bay window~

Our reward comes the day after the storm in the form of a beautiful pink sunrise!

The zoom lens can just capture a few buildings from the Boston skyline in between the snowy branches.

Fizz is waiting for the pink moment!

By lunchtime, everything is a bright sparkling blue and white in Harvard Yard.

Geese by the Charles River don't appreicate my intrusion.

Back at home, the squirrel eventually digs out.

And then come the icicles!

Kitties love to watch the drip. Moments after I shot these photos, the middle section fell to the ground.

Happy Seasonal Sunday!


  1. Really beautiful photos! Love snow but gosh it can really mess us up here in the South! Love the cats looking out! Happy Seasonal Sunday!

  2. You did a fantastic job with the photos! Loved all the ones out your pane windows, and the city views. I am hearing a large flock of geese fly over as I write this. It's so cold here all the ponds and lakes are froze over. You make snow look new again, even if I am already tired of it! thanks.


  3. Wow, this is a winter wonderland. Your photos are exquisite. The crystal blue of the sky against the pure white snow, those ice cycles sparkling through the window, the shot of your timid little kitty, . . . I could go on and on. Thanks for sharing the winter beauty!
    Stay warm and cozy in your home. ~ Sarah

  4. Great pics Daphne! Sounds like you were warm and toasty through the storm, glad to hear it:@)

  5. Thank goodness for the sun! Beautiful pictures!

  6. What beautiful pictures!!! I'm so glad we haven't gotten that much snow, but it looks like Boston keeps up with snow removal very promptly.

  7. Such gorgeous photos. It's so neat that you appear to be out in the wilderness, but you can get a shot of the Boston skyline. Thanks for bringing your beautiful photos to Seasonal Sundays.

  8. Daphne, I love these photos. Particularly the ones with the sun/pink. And after the last week, I have a much better appreciation for what it is like to have this kind of snow around! Looking forward to the 4 way tablescape.
