Largest Snowfall This Season on Connecticut's Shoreline
Looking out at the small one-lane road Pink Gardens is located on. Our mailboxes are in the center of the photo, and are snow-covered just about halfway up their posts.
All this photo needs is vintage sleigh for the proper Currier and Ives look. All images are clickable to enlarge or to save to your hard drives.
Not a sleigh, but my Infiniti is looking more like a giant marshmallow than the V8 sport sedan it is. In the background are the train tracks for Amtrack. If you take the train from New York City to Boston, you'll go right by Pink Gardens, barely 100 feet from my porch. And yes, this 150 year old house shakes, rattles and rolls when the heavy freight trains rumble by once a day!
Heavily laden with wet snow, this cedar bough on the corner of our porch is several feet lower than it normally is.
A familiar view to those that read this blog, my front yard this morning. We haven't yet been plowed, my boots are still MIA, and it's before noon, so I haven't ventured farther than my porch, lol. It's also still snowing, and is supposed to continue through the early afternoon. I might not walk to town for more photos until tomorrow. Instead I'm planning on making a tomato sauce with fresh basil and Italian sausage meatballs. I'm going to make up a new recipe for meatballs, and if they turn out well I'll type it up and post it later!
The other side of the cedar tree. There is a nesting pair of Cardinals in this tree, but it's just about impossible to get a photo of their beautiful red plumage. I catch glimpses of them darting in and out, and I hear them quite often as this tree is right outside of my livingroom/studio, but the foliage is so thick, it's virtually impenetrable to the human eye. Cardinals are my favorite birds, and our yard is full of them. Neighbor and friend, June, spends a fortune on bird food, and has brought literally hundreds of new birds to our yard.
