Hello dear friends! How many times have you listen to a weather forecast and it never turns out how they predicted. I also don’t get why any time is spent predicting weather for the upcoming weekend when it’s only Monday? So when I started decorating the back porch for a Thanksgiving table I did’t heed the weather forecast of 6-10″of snow.. Because their usually wrong, right?
They weren’t wrong this time! After waking up this morning, and waiting for the tea kettle to heat up, looked out the back porch window to see this…
My Thanksgiving tablesccape covered in snow! Our back porch is covered but the high winds blew snow all over the porch. The table napkins were frozen and so was the plaid throw used for the tablecloth.
The window shears are frozen in place and the ones against the back wall are frozen to the fence. The weather has been so nice this November and I thought there was still time to take them down before the cold weather moved in!
After getting over my initial surprise I started to enjoy how beautiful everything covered in snow..and how pretty the snowflakes look falling down.
The center piece, dried Hakonechloa grass from the garden in delicate milk glass vase and a cute squirrel dusted with snow.
Our porch covered in snow…it almost looks like powdered sugar sprinkled over everything.
In the background is our pond covered in snow, I am standing behind the table, on the porch, snapping the photo.
The pond area glistening under the heavy wet snow. Heavy, wet snow makes great snowman but it was too windy to try and make one!
Snow covered Japanese Maple, Miss Bloodgood, with some of her red fall leaves still hanging on.
Snow covered Colorado Blue Spruce. The white house behind the spruce was built in 1929 same as the Charmer.
Minnie Driv’r, our vintage Shasta trailer, is covered in snow. Mr. C swept the snow off her roof. I miss traveling with her and the fun time we had.
The Charmer looks so pretty in the snow.
The one time I should of listened to the weather forecast…because we had the largest November snowfall in over 120 years!
