Marvelous Minnesota Morning

Friday morning we had a heavy fog (not that common for us this time of year) that left behind a magical frosty world for a few hours. 
We had memorial services beginning later in the day to attend for Mitch's Grandma Dee, and I had much to do.  But first I grabbed my boots & hat and rushed outside.  (McGee joined me.)  I couldn't help but smile at the sparkling trees as I made my way through the snow.  And I couldn't help but feel Grandma Dee smiling, too, with that twinkle in her eye that she always had for us.  It was just the start I needed to the day. 

What a wonderful world.

  3. Magnificent photos. No wonder you chose to have some time outside early in your day. The snowflakes are wonderful, the blue skies brilliant against the snowy landscape. My very favourite is your second last, love the composition and colours.

  12. Yes indeed. We've had several foggy hoarfrosty morning in Bluff Country ourselves. And I'm wondering how the gator stew was you tried. I saw it on a menu in Florida, but being chicken, passed on it....:)

      It was one of the fancier places we dined at, Nottoway Plantation, outside of Baton Rouge.
