Sunset In My Back Yard 02.11.2011

Back to me...

Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.


A man is not where he lives, but where he loves.

~Latin Proverb

Love is expressed in an infinite number of ways. For instance, I loved my recent peaceful evening enjoying my back yard full of blizzard snow. I loved looking out over the frozen creek, contemplating if I should risk a few steps on the ice (the answer was "no."). I loved exploring the area for all the new animals tracks in the freshly fallen snow. And I loved that the sun was setting because that means the coyotes will be out soon and I can howl along with them. Sometimes life is just perfect. Except for leashes. I'm just sayin'...

Suka & K, You sure have a beautiful snowy backyard and the sunset is beautiful too!!!!
We also liked the blizzard pics. Suka you look good in snow. Some of us aren't made for that kinda snow. Too small...& not enough hair. We have liked our snow some but we have never had as much as you.

I couldn't agree more...life is wonderful but us doggies can live without leashes and have more time exploring the woods without them! I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!

Hello Suka! All our snow has melted and we have nice crunchy dry grass to roll in.

Huffle Mawson said...

What an impressive amount of snow! Have you put some in the freezer for when the warmer weather arrives?

Hi there Suka! Nice to meet you!

Woah, you have a lot of snow there. Too bad we have no snow in Malaysia. Maybe you can mail some to us? Hehe!
