Snowy Houston

My first mosaic this year! It's Mosaic Monday once again at Mary's Little Red House. She graciously hosts this event every Monday. Stop by her red house and see what other mosaic makers have done this week.

It rarely snows in Houston. The whole lot of my neighbors get excited whenever it does. In my class, some of my five-year-old students have not even seen snow. It is almost a novelty in this part of the universe.

Thank you for a mosaic-filled year, Mary!  Looking forward for more!

I does look cold there. You make it seem worth it though, just to get the pictures.

I was also excited of my first snow in the US, being a transplant from the tropics. I hope it was not that cold with the little powdery shower.

Enjoy your weekend Tess, hope to be blogging in full swing these coming days, got a lot of catching up to do.

Tes, I love all your pictures, the lighting is great, you really took the perfect time to get those pictures.

i remember my first snow day in US, I was not excited since my students and co-teachers were the ones excited for me, they made me make snow angel :) haha!

A lovely mosaic, the snow photos are beautiful. I'll bet the children had a great time, it's hard to imagine what it would be like to see snow from the first time.

Hi Tes,
I meant to thank you for following my little Baja blog. One of these days I am going to catch up with my posts on that one.

Beautiful pictures, very atmospheric :)

Absolutely love the photos! I am a teacher near Buffalo NY - and we get snow quite a lot. Our students are used to it, but the first snow of the year never ceases to amaze everyone. I made sure to stop my lessons and allow everyone to run to the window and observe for a while. It is a special time of year - of course when the end of February comes - knowing we will have possibly 2 more months of the stuff it does get a little tiresome as well!
Stay warm!

Hello: Loved the look of the snow on the surroundings. I can send you a little more snow if you like. We have lots. LOL. Valerie

Beautiful. So refreshing.

Diane AZ said...

Superb mosaic, I love the colors! I can feel the excitement, about once every decade it does snow a little in my neighborhood and it's a quite a thrill.

Sharon said...

Great shots! I can't imagine snow in Houston. I love that shot of the icicles on your plant.

Tekkaus said...

I wanna feel the white snow too. :(

Denise said...

Beautiful photographs and love the frosted ones. Thanks also for stopping by my blog. Really appreciated your visit :)

Ayie said...

Hi Tes! Happy New Year!

I heard about the snow in Texas, my husband's cousin lives there too and just like others they were also happy to see snow once again.

Misalyn said...

Looks so cold. Great photos and mosaic. You captured it so well.

I guess, I'll be peek again next time ;)

Have a nice day.

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

Tes, you are welcome to some of the snow that we have. We have enough to spare. Your snow and icy photographs are beautiful.

Carol said...

Everything looks so pretty with just a little frosting! Have a happy week!

bBchronicles said...

Really pretty mosaic with the frost and snow. Very nice.

life ramblings said...

wonderful series of pics Tes. it's always great to see such pics from the other side of the planet.

hope you had a wonderful new year. Happy 2010!

Icy BC said...

Beautiful mosaic, Tes..My favorites are the sunset, and the greenery bush with a touch of icicle on it.

George said...

You've gotten more snow down there in Houston than we've gotten up here in Tennessee! I'm glad you enjoyed your snowfall.

Mary said...

Oh Tes, this is so beautiful! I think you got just the right amount of snow -- just enough to be lovely but not so much that it is a pain in the neck! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful images at MM. :)

RNSANE said...

The pictures are just beautiful but, having gone to nursing school in New Orleans, I spent a lot of time with classmates and friends in Houston. Snow was NEVER part of the equation and it is just so hard to imagine it there in a Southern city so close to Galveston!

Windie said...

Wow! These look professional.
