Winter that is. The final count on Friday was 10″ of heavy wet but beautiful snow. It clung to the trees and bushes and looked like a Hallmark Christmas card. Once we had everything shoveled out, it was amazing to look at.
We even had a visitor on Saturday who wanted to indulge in some of the fruit left on this ornamental apple tree. She came out of the wetlands all alone, stayed almost 15 minutes, and seemed to have quite a feast. Our neighbor feeds them and although I’ve seen tracks, this is the first deer I’ve actually seen in the yard.
We have another weather warning for today and tomorrow with 5-8″ of additional snow forecasted.
I think the fairies are going to have to do a little winter cleanup as well. In case you are wondering, that’s a fire hydrant in the background. Up here, they have extensions that stick up so emergency responders can find them in the snowbanks.
We made a large pot of vegetable beef soup yesterday so when we come in from shoveling this afternoon, dinner will be ready.
I have a couple of good books to read, will start to put the rag quilt together, and I’m going to give needle punch a try. Tomorrow NH votes in the primary. Finally, the political calls and mail will stop. Spring break for granite staters until it starts again.
Here’s hoping you have good weather, a warm greenhouse to garden in, and a nice week coming up. If you want any snow, just let me know – I’ll gladly share. 🙂
