I'm always amazed by the beauty of the season. They all have something to offer, and winter has a beauty of its own. The leaves have fallen from the trees, exposing the sky above, allowing the sun and moon shine in through the windows. I love the night sky on a clear night; when I can look up and see the stars shining across the universe, it's very humbling.

December was rather warm but that soon changed when the arctic blast showed up on January ninth, along with a blanket of snow. It is a beautiful sight but not something we're used to living in the south!

I've always wondered why more people don't build their house further back, away from the road........maybe so they wouldn't have to shovel so much snow off the driveway to get in and out! It's there under the snow--

The aeration system in the pond seems to be keeping the pond from freezing. We put it in to help clear the pond up, which it did an amazing job of, by the way.

The dogs are having a blast playing in the snow

There's lots of little birds flying about too... it is quite amazing that they are tolerant of such cold temps being such little creatures. I didn't have any wildbird seed but left them a little chicken scratch and they seem to appreciate it

Well, you may get some before winter's over...the way the weather is going. I don't know why but I think we're gonna have an early spring this year. Last year the weather kinda went from winter, straight into summer!

More snow pictures:

Thank you *Blush*

did I tell you how the brugs are growing.. I have them all in small pots on the kitchen sink and in spring I'm going to put them in larger pots, probably somewhere in the cottage garden Smiling hubby is very excited, he said his grandma had some yellow ones growing by her front door and he always loved them - of course that was long ago but he still remembers the scent.

I'm so glad they'll be appreciated! I can't remember which ones I sent, but there should be a yellow in the bunch. 'Probably a Charles Grimaldi....and it will have lots of blooms.

Its April now and we just got some flurries the other day and snow last week Angry It's supposed to be warm now! Fortunately we have warm temps (and rain) forcasted for the coming week but after that it looks like a week of sun! Hurray!
