Snowflake

Yesterday we had another beautiful dump of snow.
I so wanted to capture a snowflake. They were huge.
I plotted on how to best accomplish this.
In the end. . .
I took a black metal pan . .. .
put it outside to let it chill,
and then I started to snap the snowflakes as they landed.
This was one snowflake.
Don't you just love the way it has all the little bits clinging together to make one impressive flake?
Tomorrow .. . . is the first day of February and I have a new challenge for us .. .
as a group.
I'd like us to make one big beautiful snowflake.
I'm excited.
In the meantime. . .
my parsely pot is doing it's best to stay alert and is now offically freeze dried parsely.

I do hope you have a delightful day.

Strap on your pedometer .. . .if you keep losing it . ..
consider duct tape.

Don't forget to come tomorrow to see the February challenge.

Have a wonderful day my friends.

  5. What a snowflake! It's 80 degrees here...I don't think I'll be seeing any snowflakes today.

    I'm up for the challenge! Doc & I are traveling a little this weekend, so I'll stop in when I can.

  6. Your snowflake picture is amazing. And because you love it so much...I'm going to send you all of the snow we get. I'm fed up with winter!

    Can't wait to see what your challenge is.

    Love,

  8. Snowflakes are so pretty and you captured a fine one, Lovella!
    My parsley looks even more limp sitting beside my back door.
    I'm up for the February challenge.(I think..smile!)
    I'm trying to figure out how to measure steps for 45 min of aquasizing at the pool!

  9. We've had rain and ice - no snow. But I'm sure more will be coming!

    Can you believe that 7-8 minutes on a stress test treadmill and you only get 700 steps??? what a bummer . . .

  13. I'm shivering just looking at your photos. I am the first to admit I like to look at snow but not be out in it.
