Patiently Waiting For Spring

I am not one of those New Englander’s who is constantly complaining about the snow. I actually LIKE the snow. There comes a point though (late March) when one more storm is just enough to push me over the edge.  So today, rather than spending the day as planned with clients, I am snowed in at home while we get another 12″ of snow.

To give myself a little lift and to remember to be grateful for the beauty of the snow and not focus on the inconvenience of it all,  I wanted to share some of my favorite snow photos with you. All were taken near my home over the past few Winters.

This was taken at sunrise and the fresh covering of snow was so beautiful.

Aren’t these colors gorgeous! I could design a whole room around this Color palette.

after the storm trees at sunrise

The snow was actually this pink when I took this photo just as the sun was rising.

I have “a thing” for old barns in the snow..what else can I say?

apple trees covered with snow

I Love how these Apple trees became snow sculptures after the storm.

snowy stop sign

yes, that is a Stop sign under there.

farm with snowy carts

Traditional horse drawn carts waiting for Spring and all the families that will soon descend upon the Farm.

This is my street just after the snow ended. I love the little pop of blue in the corner. It reminds me of accessorizing a White sofa with a bright Blue throw pillow.

 Even though the snow is indeed beautiful, what has really cheered me up today during the storm is this beautiful Yellow Orchid sitting on my kitchen counter. I really feel like Spring is so close….oh wait…what was that they said about this weekend??…more snow!!!

How about you, love the snow or ready for Spring?

If you would like a Spring pick me up for your home give me a call and ask about my Designer for the Day services.

    All I can say is “bless your heart!” I just don’t think I could stand living in the north – I am chomping at the bits for some warm weather. Sometimes I think I need to move further south than Nashville! Or maybe just spend a few months in the winter in the Florida Keys decorating beach homes. Wanna come with?

      Love the idea of the beach homes in the Winter…count me in. I draw the line though at your hot and humid Summers..that’s when I am happy to live in New England. I guess owning 2 homes is the way to go 🙂

    Your photos make me dislike the snow a little less. Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures!!!! I have to say that I am READY for spring though!

      Thanks Susan. I have never been more ready for Spring than I am now.

    I also love winter with snow until mid to late March. The spring teaser we get Michigan (ie 65* a couple of Sundays past) make the end of winter long! Thanks for sharing your optimistic view and for the beautiful pictures. Love the comparison to a white sofa with a blue throw pillow!

      Jill, thanks so much for both reading and for commenting. We had the same warm temperature tease here about a week ago….hopefully this is Winter’s swan song. I am ready for Spring!

    Well, what beautiful photography, I simply adore it. We didn’t get any snow this year and I truly do miss it. Your photos take me back to those beautiful wintery days.
    May I suggest hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick?
    PS loving the new blog header – gorgeous!

    wow,wow,wow. Amazing how you see details that would otherwise slip by. These are amazing photographs and so cool how you always find bits of inspiration for your design work.

    What beautiful post and thank you for celebrating winter when it just won’t seem to go away this year. In the Toronto area we haven’t had a major dump like what you guys got in NE but it has snowed every day – just enough to cover the ground and have to scrape the car! I love the inspirational palette of winter you showed!

    • Linda Holt Reply

      Sarah thank you so much for such a kind comment. I greatly appreciate it and now that we have had even more flakes since I wrote it on Tuesday I am very ready for Spring. I hope Spring makes an appearance where you are soon as well!

    Wow Linda! Beautiful snow pictures! Especially the one of your street. As much as I complain about the snow, I would miss the stillnes and beauty of the world after a snowfall. But I am READY now for a pretty Spring world! Great photos.

    Your photos make it all look so pretty.. Even though not a fan of winter, I think I would miss not ever having snow.. But I’m done, done with snow and crave green!

    • Linda Holt Reply
