Snow


Today is a wintry tour of my yard.  The above photo is my long driveway.  The township already came and cindered the road.  I wonder what time they awake to get the job done?


My favorite slip on boots that were hand me downs from my sister about five or six years ago.  I do not think they will ever wear out.  I can wear them with two pairs of socks (the outer layer is always wool!).


This is the back of the fence, remember over the summer when Frodo was escaping?  Good times...


One of my lilac bushes that no matter how much the deer eat in the spring it blossoms.  Very resilient bush!  As for the deer, I am not going to try to stop them.  I know I am out numbered.  We have at least five deer that walk through our property almost every day.  The twins are fully grown now.  A couple of days ago they were in the woods watching me as I was out with Frodo.  They are quite nosy :)



And last but not least I think this is golden rod.....but maybe it isn't.  I know it is a weed and we did not purposefully plant it.  I find it beautiful.

  1. Look at the snow! Beautiful. We had the lightest little dusting yesterday... we hoped it would turn into more. Nope.

  7. More winter wonderland in your beautiful neck of the woods I see! Sounds like you had a toasty weekend too with some nice comfort food :). We watched Denver Broncos get demolished by New England. We don't do much football either, but seeing that Tim Tebow (the Denver quarterback) formerly was a star player at University of Florida (my alma mater) and a homeschooler (yay!), and now playing in Denver Colorado, our soon to be home state, suddenly we are fans, or so I am told. Hehe, like you, I'm just happy to knit.
    cheers to you my friend!

  8. I think you have a bit more snow than we do, but I just love it! Such brilliant chilly photos. Isn't this just the most perfect weather for this season?

  9. I agree! Just because something is supposed to be a "weed" doesn't mean it isn't beautiful - or even that it can't be useful. It's all a matter of perspective, no?
    Beautiful post.

  10. I love your photos! I have taken a few snow covered weeds and I think that the textural elements of them really lend themselves to great photos. Thanks for sharing!

  11. How I loved this tour! I spend so much time out in my own yard admiring the natural world--so many wonders in such a small area. I spent a long time this morning watching a red squirrel play along our fence line. Still waiting for snow here.
