We had our first snow here over the weekend. Not even an inch, but it looks like winter now. Not too much like winter, just a dusting. Looks pretty, doesn't it? I don't mind this kind of snow. It's pretty but it doesn't really get in your way. We do have heavier snow here in Kentucky, but usually not this early.
We have a tree in our back yard that decorates itself... see all the little red berries that have popped up? I think that looks prettier than any man-made decoration I've ever seen. (They show up better if you click on the photo.) I do have a few man-made decorations. There is an elf sitting on my front porch, and a stocking by my fireplace that says "Mele Kalikimako"... Hawaiian for "Merry Christmas". It's a sort of "amulet" that I keep in hopes of being able to live there one day.
