The Beauty of Wet Snow

Wet snow may be a pain to deal with, but it is undeniably beautiful.

It sticks to everything, making wonderful contrasts of light and dark.

Small bushes become soft sculptures as every twig holds its portion of snow.

The evergreens dressed in white. Each Christmas we used to make Ivory soap flakes snow for the Christmas tree. It looked a lot like this. By 1:00 the trees were bare, looking newly washed.

Judi, I love your photos and your well-written captions. Here in Summerville, South Carolina, where I live with 32 gibbons and 3 dogs, including two rescue Pyrs, a Newf and a blind mix breed, it was 79 degrees on Christmas Day. We were all in T-shirts! Love, Shirley McGreal
