Hello! This blog is where I ramble about motherhood and my ventures into scrapbooking, crafting and photography. We homeschool, and enjoy teaching our boys about God and dabbling with art. :) Thanks for visiting, do stay awhile, and I would love to hear from you! :)

Weekend wanderings: Snowflakes


It was supposed to be a cold, sunny day, but it suddenly started snowing while we were getting ready for church. By the time we reached our church compound, it was white, white, everywhere (and yes, that's Junior J giving us his "funny grimace" which always appears when we ask him to smile).

The falling flurries of white fascinated both the boys, but this fascinated me and the hubby even more:


Snowflakes. Each one perfect, piling up in a layer of icy loveliness, and melting away if you tried to catch them. These beautiful structures inspired Wilson Bentley, who photographed more than 5000 of these:

And the amazing thing was that he found that each snowflake was unique, and its design was never repeated. (You can find out more about his work here, plus view more photomicrographs of snowflakes.) No wonder that he described them as miracles. Such an amazing Creator we have, that even pays attention to such fine details!
