It snowed on and off yesterday, it was very pretty coming down. The temperatures hovered right around freezing, so it's not horrifically frozen, the pond is still ice-free, thank goodness. Our son Shawn snapped the 3 next photos this morning when he arrived home from working the night shift and shared them with me.
The cars have lots of snow on them.
Right in front of the barn, it's kind of a parking lot. :-)
This is the view from our master bedroom, we have French doors that open into our little forest on the East side of our property. This one I just took this morning.
This was yesterday when the snow was lighter in the woods.
We have a big open spot in the woods that Dayle mows with the tractor occasionally.
This is from our bedroom window facing the road, see the new growth on the Quince bush? Spring got ambushed by snow!
Snow on the garage barn, the chicken coop and the garden shed. :-)
But happily the creek and pond are still flowing so the koi should be safe.
The sun is bouncing off the snow into the house and it's very bright in here! :-)
I have not ventured far from the house for the last few days and I'm getting my photos from inside out of the windows or from stepping out on the deck a few feet. I am not interested in falling down in this snow! :-)
Our little shed has a lovely cover of snow.
The boys little growing garden is working out well, we're able to snip off the lettuce leaves to add to our salads. The dill is getting big and the tomato plant has a nice heavy stem and the two pepper plants are doing well.
The dog and I have spent many an hour working on my crochet blanket. This is the backside of the design, the other side is much prettier with a ridged pattern.
This photo was shared on Facebook by a photographer named Tina. Wow!
My sister Denise and her husband and their two traveling companions boarded this ship yesterday to head to the Panama Canal, neat, huh? The leave from San Diego, California. Then to Cabo San Lucas, Huatulco and Puerto Chapas, Mexico. Then to Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala, San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, through the Panama Canal to Cartagena, Colombia and ending in Miami, Florida. Wow!
I will not drive to swim today due to the snow accumulation, and am not sure I will be able to get to the lodge to volunteer tomorrow, but possibly will. Dayle and I are thinking of a little weekend getaway. More on that later. What are you up to? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
