Outside of Atlanta, Georgia in Gwinnett County is this special home.
This special place is home to General Beauregard Lee. A loved rodent of the south with his Prognosticator weather ways.
Let's hope we have the clouds they are calling for today so he does not see his shadow. I am so ready for this winter cold to depart....
HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!
Update: General Beauregard Lee DID NOT see his shadow but Puxsutawney Phil DID see his shadow. Whom do you believe???
Note: The above pictures were borrowed from the Internet.
Speaking of the cold; Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Nope this is not snow in my Georgia Garden but rather the 2 foot of snow that fell in Virginia back in December. The Saints parents sent us these pictures of their lake view.
I think their patio table looks like a big Wedding Cake!
Yep, there is a grill under that blanket of white!
Here is the view of the Saint's Sister's yard. The snow was still falling when this picture was snapped. What a beautiful covering for the evergreen trees!
I would sit by the fire all day long and enjoy this beauty while sipping hot chocolate or hot tea.
Here is the snow that fell this past weekend at my parents home in Tennessee. Tina knows all about this snow as she too received it in her neck of the woods. I believe there is a Little Gem Magnolia tree in this picture some where but difficult to see with the white fluff every where...
The way the branches of this evergreen are loaded reminds me of my days in Bavaria Germany. This is a sight my parents do not like seeing. Some inexperienced snow driver, ended up in their ditch. There was only 6 inches of snow on the ground but for Clarksville, TN, that may as well be 2 foot as they just do not know how to drive under such conditions. It does not snow much there anymore thus, no one has the practice the folks up north get with lots of snow falls. While I am seeing pictures full of snow, here in my Georgia Garden, all we had is more rain fall. I know I should not complain about the rain as it was not that long ago we here in Georgia were in a drought. But come on, don't we have enough for now? Save some of this wet stuff for the summer months when I will so be wanting it please....
Since we don't receive snow here in the Deep South where I live, we must make our own snow fun. Here are the Bunny's in my woods during the Christmas Holidays.
As you can see, they had some fun snow to enjoy.
In my house, my Snowman themed Christmas tree has been replaced with a corner shelf of snow men.
My favorite of all the snowmen would have to be this guy on his sled in the middle of a pile of snowballs.
My kitchen has a bit of snow adorning it with these snow people on the corner shelves.
See the small snowman to the right on the bottom shelf in the right picture? That was a gift to me when I was a child. Avon perfume is still in the snowman's body!
More snow fun can be found in the hall and dining room with two villages. My snow villages are fun to set up in the winter as that is my snow for the season.
Each village is so full of activities with the towns people from building snowmen to a couple getting married at the church!
I always become a bit depressed when taking down my snow fun and packing it away. I should not as I know that soon I will be taking my interest outside.
I will continue to enjoy your blogs and family pictures of the winter snow but for me, IT'S SNOW GO, In the Garden...
