We have been busy around the house,
moving furniture so we can paint, visiting
hardware stores and painting so I have not
taken many pictures. I took these shots of
the streetlight in front of the house March 3rd
when we got a bit of snow over night.

"Are you sleeping now?
It's midnight in Missoula
Where the Black Hills know your name
Is the snow piled high around your window frame?
Is there enough frost left to write our names upon the pane?"

Midnight in Missoula
Lyrics as performed by Nanci Griffith





"Oh my fair North Star
I have held to you dearly
I have asked you to steer me
Til one cloud scattered night
I got lost in my travels
I met Leo the Lion
Met a king and met a giant, with their errant knight"

Lyrics Mercy of the Fallen
as performed by Dar Williams


The next day I managed a few shots in the
backyard. The snow was mostly gone today.
  


"So I rode my one-eyed mare across the tundra
As soon as I was old enough to go
There were dangers that befell the ones who wandered
But the fern moss just looked pretty in the snow"

Lyrics New Siberia
As performed by Antje Duvekot

I am going to steal this idea. Now that I want night snow, we probably won't get anymore this year!

Have fun with your projects!

Hi Sandy

Thanks, we got the living room painted next we put in the new moldingss. All the best with your snow it looked pretty spring like in Maine when I visited your blog today.

Oh, just beautiful, both photos and words! A wonderful coupling of the two! I love the snow against the street lights!

These are lovely wintry images, Guy! Probably the last glimpse of snow I will see since we have been having unseasonably warm (80 degrees and up ~ The norm is 42 degrees) temperatures of late. As always, a beautiful selection of poems to go along with the stunning images. I bet your house looks nice with a new coat of paint to freshen things up. Just in time for spring!

Hi Kathie

Thanks for your kind words. I was very happy with the streetlight photos it is an old friend as I have photographed it before but the conditions this time gave it a very unique look in my eyes.

All the best.

Hi Julie

Thanks. The paint job does look nice, next weekend we start on the new moldings. It is warm in Calgary but they are predicting more snow. We were in central Alberta Saturday and they still had some snow and we did not see many birds. It will be a while before we get to 80 degrees.

All the best.
