Oh, the weather outside is frightful

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW!

 I love the look of snow in the gardens. Conifers look especially enchanting with snow cover.

 Beautyberries - as winter goes on, and food becomes more scarce, the birds will eat these. I think they are so pretty; I guess that's why they're called beautyberries.

 A Christmas-card like view...

 A blue spruce that we planted years ago

 Our prettiest tree...sold as a Black Hills Spruce, but I think it looks more like a Black Spruce.

 A tiny Fraser Fir that will be a Christmas tree for us when it gets larger

 This burning bush hasn't lost its leaves yet.

 Another spruce (and a bottle tree) - we purchased this spruce at Home Depot for $10 when it was less than a foot tall. I can't remember how long ago, but probably 8 or so years ago.

 Another view - do you see our berry patch? It is greatly loved by the birds as a source for food and shelter.

 Pine cones grace the Weeping White Pine.

In case you are curious, last weekend the temps were in the 40s. Last night (overnight) and into this afternoon, it snowed (3 inches so far). By Saturday, it will be in the 50s so the snow will be gone.

While I don't love cold weather, or driving on slick roads, as a photographer (ha ha ha), I truly appreciate a snow scene.
