White wintery Wednesday


Hey guys it's a doomy gloomy time in Western Washington.I really don't like January much, resolutions and rain! Rain rain go away!My diets already gone away twice!
I know most of the country has been in a deep freeze, but the snow is so pretty,, much prettier then the muddy gardens around here! I did these pics in black and white, because this is much more realistic than color.
The only thing white I could find out in the garden was this white birch tree, which I love!
My little white patio set that is getting some good ol' weathering and a little rust from all the rain.
This dirty old iron chair is looking kind of lonely, so I guess hubby left the rakes by it to keep it company.

Nice touch with the b&w photos. Your weather has to be better than frigid cold CT. I thought I heard a Spring bird sing this morning and it got me hoping. Maybe he'll nest in your lovely birdhouse.

I don't want snow! I like to visit it. I am, however, getting a bit weary of the constant wet as well. Oh well, it'll be spring soon. Thanks for the reminder.

We're getting a bit tired of cold here in Pa too!
That patio set is so pretty.

Nice photos, Amy! I LOVE the effect of black and white to make everything look frosty! At least non-Washingtonians (is that a word?) don't see all the sloppy wet stuff we have this time of year! Only 2 months and 7 days until Spring! And sun is predicted for Thursday!

Take care,

I like your blog a lot. It's the same weather here in Ontario, so there is not much to do. It's nice to browse through all the blogs and meet talented people.
Cheers!
