Snow or Marshmallow?

You have to ask yourself: Is it snow? or Is it marshmallow?

  1. Nice photographs. I just love this time of year. It is a pity we did not get any snow yet.

    1. There is a bit of frosting on the San Jacinto mtns near us, but no really heavy snow.

  2. One you can eat and the other, depending on its color, is best not to try.

    1. When we were children in Illinois, Mom would find a spot of pristine freshly fallen snow. She'd fill a dishpan with snow, add cream, sugar, and vanilla. That was a treat.

  3. If it was marshmallow we could eat our way out of the driveway.

  7. I do hope it is snow. Marshmallow gets so sticky when it warms up. And attracts ants. And is more difficult to wash off clothing... And snow makes me heart sing. We do get snow nearby and very occasionally here and I LOVE IT.

  8. Dear Susan, or is it confetti sprinkled by a fun-loving cloud that also drops sugar white to bemuse that confetti! Peace.

  12. I'll never look at snow the same way again. Nor my hot chocolate. ;)

  13. Up here, the option of marshmallow is probably less then zero. At -27C (or -17F) no self-respecting marshmallow would be caught outside, except at a campfire.

  14. But I love that song, "It's a marshmallow world in the winter"..... Used to use it in the Christmas programs. (dance programs)
