A wintry mix is not our idea of ideal weather in the winter, but unfortunately, with the warmer temps this week, it is what we are living with. On the upside, it can be very pretty, but on the downside, it makes for a real mess! Olivia looks nice with some of the snow and ice in her beard furs.
Looking around the yard, we have some interesting sites like our RV birdhouse. We love this thing, and it looks pretty neat covered in snow and ice. The ice hanging off the wheel is fun to look at.
Our squirrel feeder looks nice in snow. Unfortunately, the squirrels are not coming by these days. We hope they come back in the spring so we can chase them.
Then we have Miss Bailie who appears to be the biggest magnet for wet snow. Her beard is pretty full, but we think it looks good.
The real bummer is her leg furs. They are covered in mini-snowballs from the wintry mix snow. She will have to come inside, get a rub down and then defrost.
We have these pretty red berries on some of our trees. They always look so beautiful covered in snow and/or ice. The birds are supposed to eat them, but evidently, they are not hungry because we still have tons of them.
Pine trees always look nice covered in fresh snow. The wet snow is heavy, so the branches lean downward a bit. You can also see the ice droplets that are frozen and mixed in with the snow.
The dried hydrangea flowers are really weighed down with the heavy snow, but they do look interesting.
Last but not least by any means, there is me with my snow beard. I had a really good one going on, but then I shook off right as Mom was going to take my photo. Oh well, I still have some snow left on my mug. Hopefully it will get cold and stay cold soon for about two months so we don’t have this melty, messy, wintry mix, but who knows! Hope your enjoyed our little show.
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard for their Nature Friday blog hop.
