Snowflakes


While we waited for Hannah after piano lessons, the light was just right to see individual snowflakes as they landed on the windows of the van. They are so beautiful and unique.

I just learned that while no two snowflakes are exacty alike, they usually form in a few categories, and there are snowflake guides to help you identify your snowflake. That site has some other cool information about snowflakes like: they grow snowflakes all year long to study, and sometimes snowflakes form 12 or 3 sides.


snowflake pictures found at www.snowflake.com

This site also has some beautiful pictures of snowflakes.

The more it snows
TiddlyPom
The more it goes
TiddlyPom
The more it goes
TiddlyPom
On snowing.

And nobody know
TiddlyPom
How cold my toes
TiddlyPom
How cold my toes
TiddlyPom
Are growing.

Did you see last month's Smithsonian? There was a wonderful article about Wilson Bentley, the man who discovered that no two snowflakes are alike. I blogged about him back in December.
