Garden Tuesday: A Blast from the Past

After my mother died, I found some slides in the trailer, which I scanned.  I'm pretty sure everyone is tired of looking at the "Snow du Jour" from the eastern US, and from my back door, so here's snow from a long time ago!

I suspect these were taken in perhaps January or, more likely, February of 1967.  I know this is a covered bridge in Kent, Connecticut.  I don't remember this specific journey, but I recognize the car in one of the pictures as belonging to one of my mother's friends.  I'm even in one of the pictures; I'm the taller child.








Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone; let's hope for a reprieve from the single digit temperatures soon!

HI Marjie:)
I do love the covered bridge, but quite frankly today's snow or yesterday's snow, I've about had it!

I remember snow storms from my youth but somehow they just didn't feel as cold as they do these days. I know it must be these old bones, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...fingers crossed for double digits:)

We are anticipating minus degrees before the week is over. Lots of ice around here, and many places are closed again tomorrow. We aren't accustomed to these kinds of storms.

If you do a rain dance for us, I'll do a stop-snow dance for you. (These pictures were well worth saving.)
