Green Boots, Red Barn

Add a little snow and it must be Christmastime. . . How apropos that snow should take us unawares while we were up just north east of Seattle at a "cut your own" tree farm. It was a festive and crowded atmosphere with smiles all around, hot cider and cocoa in the office, and helpful people working hard in the cold to make a nice experience for people from communities all around. We even caught some big fat fluffy flakes on our tongues. Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday!

Very seasonal and almost Norman Rockwellish. All you need is a little boy pulling a tree on a Red Ryder wagon:)

Brrrrr! I don't know how I'm going to make it up there in the cold.....

This is a delightful photo, almost impressionistic caused by the way you caught the flakes.

Great shot of a great Holiday Season activity. We always went out and cut ours, while our family was at home. :-) Great memories.

Great capture of the snow tooo!

Neva, Hey, thanks!

Clueless, Nice thought!

Geology Chick, You are going to do just fine. . .it's kind of magical, and it usually doesn't last more than a day or three in this area when it happens. Sometimes it snows once a year, other years 3 to 5 times. The kids get snow days from school. . .its beautiful, too!

Kate, Thanks. I was amazed that the lens captured exactly what I saw.

Mari-Nancy, We used to cut our own before we had kids. Then it was too far to drive to the mountains for a tree, so the tradition of dad and kids going to a city charity tree lot started. Now we are back full circle to driving to the country together. Ah, the cycles of family life!

Olivier, Merci! C'était si beau ce jour-là! Je pense Seattle et Evry ont le temps semblable. Avez-vous eu une neige encore ?
