autumn, Friday's Favourites

fff ~ Nov treasure hunt 4

Hi there and welcome to Friday’s Fave Five ~ the 4th and final November Treasure Hunt edition. Looking for treasures this month was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  Thanks for joining me!

This week’s treasures:

1. A moonlit sky just before dawn. 

2. A long and lovely prayer walk in a nearby woods with a friend and Sophie.

The air was crisp and cold with the only sound the beautiful song of the brook rippling over the stones.

3. The first snowstorm = a cosy evening at home.

Candlelight, a glass of wine, chicken and rice casserole, and a perfect dessert for blustery nights ~ baked apples.

4. Digging out the next morning ~ so thankful for my shovel-wielding husband!  Boomer, our local CBC weatherman, predicted “shovelable snow” – and he was right.

Winter routine has begun for our student girl – she drives 30 min to school each day. So it’s up early to scrape off the car and warm it up before she heads off.

5.  Well . . . here we are,  the last treasure in my Nov Hunt. These little blooms have featured prominently the last month.  It seems so rare and lovely to have flowers blooming in November.

And I’m sure it’s only a minor miracle, but I don’t think I’ve ever had snapdragons blooming in the snow! 🙂

Thanks for stopping in to visit!

And, to all my American friends, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

with love,

PS ~ For more Friday Fave fun, visit Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.

  1. pretty pics! we haven't had snow yet other than that freak 2 inches in october….we are supposed to get about 2-4 inches of wet slushy snow tonite here in the capital region area of NYS. I haven't really missed it but it WOULD be nice for xmas eve…..enjoy the start of the winter season

    How beautiful to see the white snapdragons in the snow – gorgeous photos, Kathy.I too found snapdragons – deep pink- in an unexpected place beside the shop- but mine succumbed to the cold weather while we were in warmer climes..


  3. Your woods are absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to go for a walk amongst those trees and along that little brook!Snapdragons in November?! That is a miracle. A lovely miracle.


  4. If I wouldn't trust you so much I wouldn't believe those are real snapdragons. I thought it would be fun to go stick some silk flowers in the snow (when we get some again) and post about the rarity of the blooms. Ha ha!Beautiful photos again Kathie!


  5. Wow, those are gorgeous photos. They're so sharp, crisp, and perfect for your FFF. A miracle indeed I think for those snapdragons, and I'm glad you captured them before they're gone. Beautiful woods there too, looks like a perfect place to go for walks. This is a great piece. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing your FFF.


  6. I could just sit and look at your pictures for hours. They are so beautiful. And all that snow. Wow. I can't imagine. Enjoy your weekend. We're stuffing ourselves on turkey down here. 🙂


  7. Major miracle!!!…stunning photo of the snapdragons….so lovely!Thank you for sharing another delightful post.What is your daughter studying for? My daughter spent two years driving 45 minutes to her college but is grateful to be working now in her field…worth the drive and the efforts!Strength and safety for your daughter as she commutes each day!Blessings,Joanne

    Snapdragons look like they were always meant to be there inthe snow….They are beautiful…Your other photos are wonderful,as well….Thank you, we id have a truly Blessed Thanksgiving…Love from NC


  9. Beautiful walk through the woods and things look very cozy inside as the snow was falling outside.Your photo of the snapdragon in the snow is breathtaking.


  10. Now I am really wondering about what is going on: I have pink snapdragons in full bloom here, even after well below freezing temperatures and shovel deep snow fall. I do plant and enjoy ice pansies that routinely bloom in the snow but am not aware of an ice snapdragon option. Maybe we should exchange seeds after they finally form pods?
