Snowstorm Part 2

The snow is coming down more slowly now,
but it is still wet and heavy.
There were crashes all morning, as the branches dropped their loads.
I took the dogs for a walk this morning,
but that is about all I have been able to do today...

The snow/sleet started coming down before we went for our walk this morning,
and by this afternoon, has changed to just snow.
But it is still coming down pretty hard.

This is what the lilacs outside look like now.
But last week, I brought some forsythia and lilac branches inside,
and see what the lilacs are doing!!!

My mother has had these two prints rolled up in a cupboard for about 20 years.
I would like to get them valued, but neither the appraisor nor I can read the signatures.
He has searched names ending in "onk" and "onte", and the only possibility is Nonte, but the first names do not match.
Can anyone offer any other information?

Rose Petals

The petals are falling off my roses now, and I have experimented with some macro images.
Then I chopped the petals and sprinkled them on my dinner.
I just couldn't bear to put them into the compost...

Husband brought me a bouquet of mixed roses
for Valentine's Day.
I estimate that I have taken 200 photos of them,
and then had to edit them all,
before deleting most of them,
and saving just the best.

I have a lot of mallow plants in my garden,
and this is one of the bits that are above the snow.

Valentine's Day Cactus

I can't call it a Christmas cactus, blooming in February,
so I will just call it pink...

Friday's snowstorm has left a fresh blanket of white on the ground.
The stream is almost frozen over, but not snow-covered.

Clementines in the Snow

I took a clementine outside, and settled in the falling snow for a couple of hours.
