"Snowy Dogwood "  Dec. 17, 2010

This is what's happening today in Holland - more snow! In the fall and winter, I've always loved the look of the bare red branches of this flowering dogwood. I don't know the true name of this type of dogwood, it was also a volunteer in my garden long before I even moved to Holland, but it's always been beautiful in the snow.

So far it's been snowing all day here and it's still coming down as I type. So I posted another Photo Friday for today ... :o)

Edit to add: I just noticed that last year on Dec. 17th, we also had a big snow:
White stuff fell on my flamingoes ... snow in the Netherlands - Dec 17, 2009.

doei (bye),

Great pic...you guys sure are getting dumped on this year! I like the idea of Friday pics!

me thinks you you are beginning to think a bit in dutch? "we also had a big snow" that is a good sign!

Has Sinterklaas been to your house?

Yeah, I often do "think in dutch" and then can't figure out how to say it in english anymore! LOL

Ja hoor!, the Sint came and went - on the 5th of Dec. He left some high-speed train tickets to Paris (going in January). Ik hou van Sinterklaas ... hee hee.
