Simple + {Snowy} Southern Sunday No. 19

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool”
‭Isaiah‬ ‭1‬:‭18

Snow is a rare occurrence in the Appalachian foothills of northeast Alabama…so, please indulge us as we are beyond excited to share the snow edition of Simple + Southern Sunday!  As beautiful and peaceful as it is, we are thrilled that snow is not a part of our everyday living!

On the drive home last Tuesday, I had to get a photo of these guys and girls on the snow with their red barn!

A winter evening graces a beautiful church near the center of town!

Train trestle covered with snow over the Coosa River is a rare sight!

Katy had a perfect view of historic downtown!

An empty Broad Street Bridge!  Not a normal afternoon!!

The gazebo in downtown near City Hall is also quiet and peaceful.

Hot chocolate with loads of peppermint marshmallows in a flower box overlooking Court Street!

Baby Harper’s first snow.  Isn’t she a doll?

The pastures of Blackberry Farm during our visit last week!

The Main House at Blackberry looking pristine!

So tranquil  at the farm!

Gate entrance to our cottage!  Couldn’t have been more perfect!

One more view of the beauty of Blackberry Farm

Back home as the sun rises over our pasture behind our rose trellis. All wearing a soft white blanket.

Trees dressed in their winter attire!

Our always changing view of the mountain!  In every season, these Appalachian foothills display beauty!

“I was glad when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’”
Psalm 122:1

    What lovely pictures. There is definitely something magical about newly fallen snow and how the objects it covers are transformed into works of art. Thank you for sharing. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  2. Kim says:

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful snow pictures. Harper is one lucky girl to see snow so soon in her life. You got some fabulous shots in lots of places – such fun!

  3. Stephanie says:

    Oh my, Harper is an absolutely sweetheart! And the snow pictures are truly delightful. We have a fresh layer of snow covering the ground this morning and it looks so pure and beautiful.

    Thanks, my dear, for sharing at Roses of Inspiration. Happy Tuesday!

  4. Nanette says:

    Just skipped over from Stone Gable’s site and found your breathtaking photos! We do not enjoy the beauty of snow in Florida; it was a pleasure to view, thank you!

  5. Debby Ray says:

    Beautiful snowy photos! I am visiting you from Roses of Inspiration. I can certainly undersrand your excitement getting your lovely snow. Although we probably do get more than you (I’m in central NC) I get so excited too! We had a lovely 6-7 inches last week and it was GLORIOUS! Thanks for sharing your lovely captures!

    • Debby, your gracious words are so encouraging! Thank you so much for taking time to read and comment! I do love the mountains of North Carolina and the Outer Banks! Blessings, Pam

    • Joy, you are more than kind since you are a photographer. We have a nice Canon (would have to ask my husband), but all of these photos were taken with an IPhone 5 and 6. I am technically challenged and I can use my IPhone when I can’t figure out a real camera as my son says! Blessings, Pam

    What absolutely gorgeous photos! That red barn against the snow took my breath away! Each one was a delight and little Harper is such a cute snow bunny! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Vintage Mama says:
