A Perfect Albuquerque Snowfall

There's something special about snow in New Mexico - not because it's especially rare, but because it's beautiful: Imagine cactus plants iced like sculpture, against a dramatic mountain backdrop under the desert sky. And in Albuquerque it's even better because, as we like say, "It's so pretty, and then it melts!" I woke up this morning to find a perfect layer of snow coating the ground and frosting the trees, so right after I tossed down a cup of tea and bite, I grabbed my camera and went out to get these pics:
^ My angel suncatcher lights up the monotone landscape
^ This big cholla cactus in my front yard looks like modern art!
^ For holiday decorations this year, I hung these oversize ornaments from the big pines that grace my front yard. Here in the snow, they look like a pathway to another realm.
^ This towering pine stands beneath the lightening sky, as the clouds break after the storm. And true to form, the snow is now mostly gone as the day draws to a close. Tomorrow I'll have a little snow left in the shady spots - and these pictures - to remind me of a perfect snowfall.

Very pretty! What fun to see snow on a cactus! I live in Indiana and we have not had much snow yet. Happy Holidays!

And Happy Holidays to you, FSG! Just think, if you lived somewhat further to the east (based on the weather reports I've been hearing) you'd have had a LOT of snow by now ;)

I really like the decorations in your yard!
And I'm so jealous of your snow.

TY, Chiara ~ and lol, is it hot down there in S. Australia? :)

Don't be too jealous - as I promised yesterday, the snow is almost gone now!
