Just as I'd resigned myself to a snow-less winter, look what happened! A perfectly wonderful and picturesque weather event! LOL! Cold enough for the snow to last a bit, but not frigid enough for the pond to freeze.
Dayle got the photo above.. and then I put on my shoes for a short venture out onto the deck for some photos. :-) This is our shed, it has been many things over the years, a workshop, playhouse, art studio and one of sons even used it as a bedroom for a time. Our pasture rises behind it.
Then our pretty red barn that Dayle designed and built almost single-handedly, with just a bit of help from me and the kids.
Out front, this is our big walnut tree.
Having been born last May, this is Mocha's first snow. She loved it!
Then back in for a warm up on my lap. :-)
The morning began with me looking up from bed to the skylight above.. yep... snow!
The wintry forest outside our bedroom French doors. That bit of red up there are our closest neighbors to the East.
I love having a woodland outside our room.. with Douglas Fir and Cedars.
Looking out of the kitchen while making my coffee.. we have a garden window above the sink.
We're getting some Christmas cactus blooms.
The window in our family room.. looking north.
A bit of sun illuminating the crystalline landscape.
The big wild cherry and massive chestnut.
This photo of sun in the frosted Pin Oak tree doesn't quite show how pretty it was.
Thankfully the pond remains unfrozen and running.
A last look at the snow before the sun melts it some.. but then the sun went down and the temperatures dropped and we still have a white landscape today.
Our son Travis and his family bought a home in the countryside with a pasture and hillside behind it.. the boys were thrilled that it finally snowed and they spent hours sledding with their dog.
Gotta love boys and snow.
Mocha is so affectionate.. we're really enjoying her.
I hope you're having a good week.. what's new in your neck of the woods? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
