Snow & Rose – Yesterday and Today

Yay! It finally snowed here! I woke up to snowfall in the morning. It was unbelievable! Unbelievable? Well, according to the native people here, this place is not high enough to get snowfall and they haven’t experienced it as long as they can remember. But today, it was a new day. My hope was forming into a reality over the night. Hehehe.πŸ˜‰

I experienced it fully. The snow flakes were falling with the little blue morning light in the background. And if you have read my yesterday’s post, you would know how muchΒ surprising it would have been for me. It was just wonderful, exciting, over-joyous!πŸ™‚

So here are two pictures of a rose (just one rose in the neighborhood, just one!), one which I took yesterday with the snow up in the mountains in the background and one with the snow, well, on the rose itself!πŸ˜€ Hope you enjoy.


I had fun clicking this one in the snow today. I almost slipped. Thank goodness, I didn’t.

Stay warm!

It’s extremely cold here now. I will definitely share more photos.

  1. Oh wow, Nandini. That looks like a serious snowfall! So unusual to see a rose which speaks of summer, under a blanket of snow. Seasons in transition. Thanks for sharing. Stay warm!

    • It was serious but just for one day. But I was content by the end of the day, as we were not prepared for it, so it would have caused more problems if it had fallen for more days.πŸ™‚ It surely was fun and a treat for my eyes.πŸ™‚ Thank youπŸ™‚

  2. Great pics, the poor rose look so devastated, it is probably dead but the plant will survive the cold blast and flower again soon after like mines use to do when an out of season storm dropped some white stuff all over them.
    How about a snow balls fight with good friends or sliding down a hill on a piece of cardboard. Small hill i mean, not mountain side.πŸ˜€

    • The rose survived, and so did the plantπŸ™‚ I will share the latest pic very soon. I was surprised too. Actually, the snow didn’t last long, the next day it rained and it got washed away, that’s why no play in the snow. But it still felt good.πŸ™‚ Thank you!πŸ™‚

    • Yes, that’s a strange yet beautiful pair- snow & rose. I have shared more mountain pictures today and will do more. Thanks, Victoria. Glad you liked these.πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful picture of the rose. I am glad you are enjoying the snow. It get cold here but never snows, Useless winters. i wish i would get to see snow sometime soon… Miss it, well have seen it only once…

    • Yes even I think snow-less winters are no fun. Perhaps, the entire North India should get snow for at least a day. Hehe.πŸ˜‰ Hope you get to see it soon. Here, it’s sunny again.πŸ™‚

    • Yes, totally magical. The magic stayed for the whole one day and then it left for good.πŸ™‚ Thanks, Linda. Hope you get some snow too.πŸ˜‰
