Perfect Little Snow Flakes

It is the small things that just amaze me!
These first two pictures were on my back deck.  We only got a small dusting last night but what fell were perfect little snow flakes.
And this last picture was in my front yard.  You can see even the really small ones were star shaped.

"The Forgotten Garden" and "The House at Riverton"... Two Book Reviews

The Forgotten Garden The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
"A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, a love denied, a mystery The Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, secrets, family and memory from the international best-selling author Kate Morton."

Such a good book! I would recommend this to everyone. The author weaves you through, back and forth from the early 1900's to 2005. I really like the way this author writes, she kept me enthralled in the book.
A mystery that makes you want to know the ending and yet you don't want it to end!

The House at Riverton The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
"On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again."

To me, another great read by Kate Morton! And again I would recommend this book of hers as I did "The Forgotten Garden". Her trademark seems to be the weaving back and forth through time. Another mystery to keep you enthralled and entertained. Read it, you wont be disappointed.
