This is what our yard looked like yesterday. Yup. We got another foot +/- of snow. Twice in less than three weeks, we've gotten a foot +/- of the white stuff. But from what I've seen on the news, we got less than our neighbors to the north. Lexington got 17", Frankfort got 20". So I'll stop complaining now and count my blessings.
It's safe to say the whole state is shut down, I don't think a corner was spared. I'm hopeful that this is the final snowfall of the year. For one thing, Mr. Peepaw is tired of shoveling. I've tried to talk him into getting a snow blower but he won't hear of it.
Campbell was home with her daddy today so I had the whole day to myself. Well, almost. Mr. Peepaw came home mid-afternoon to shovel the driveway. But anyhow, I did what I like to do best on snow days. I played with flowers.
But first, let me tell you about my Friday Finds for this week.
A mason jar caddy. Isn't that just the cutest thing? As soon as I saw it, I envisioned it with flowers in it and when I put the flowers in, I wasn't disappointed. It brings a smile to my lips every time I pass it.
Now, back to my flower playing. Yesterday, knowing that the snow was coming, I stocked up on tulips. And I'm so glad I did.
These red tulips might be the prettiest red tulips I've had in a long time. They're holding up much better than the orange ones you see below.
This photo was taken for a prompt in The Studio, stacked. It's been a fun prompt. So much fun, in fact, I've done another which I really love. I think the forecast of snow filled my head and heart with dreams of the beach. It took me several days to think of what I could stack and then yesterday, it just came to me in the midst of doing something else. So I immediately quit that task and turned to playing with sea shells.
And finally, to conclude this photo marathon today, I'll leave you with this mixed floral bouquet. This is not usually my favorite kind of thing but this has served me well.
Well, that's about the extent of my faffing this week. If you don't know what faffing is, ask Kim Klassen, she'll be happy to give you a picturesque description and tell you where the word comes from. But you're all smart people out there so I imagine that looking at the potpourri of photos today will help you figure out exactly what faffing means. But I will tell you this: it's fun. You should try it some time.
Until next time,
