The fresh fluff, otherwise known as “powder” in snow language, came down Saturday night. We got about four inches at our house. The wind stopped and when we woke up Sunday morning it was just beautiful outside. Everything looks better with fresh snow, and when it is below zero, it sparkles so in the sunshine.
Mom had to take some photos of things around our yard because they look so nice. Bailie likes to keep tabs on what Mom is up to from the front window. The pine bushes too are covered in a layer of white fluff.
The bird house in the front yard has a nice coating of snow on the roof. Birds never seem to live in the little home, but it looks nice hanging from the tree during all the seasons. There is a small business not far from us that sells cute metal things. Mom buys things down there for our yard now and then.
I headed out to the yard for a good sniff around after our walk. The snow isn’t wet, so it doesn’t turn into snowballs in our beards, which is nice. My ear and beard look more like they have dandruff than a coating of snow.
No one was out and about early Sunday as it was Sunday, and the roads were still pretty slick. Even our group of mailboxes look nice on the roadside with the dollops of snow on them. We think just looking at this photo, you can feel the quiet peacefulness at the time the photo was taken. It is a simple shot that conveys a lot.
Olivia has more snow in her beard as she spends more time outside sniffing around. Her nose is the busiest in the family by far. She has a few little snowballs from her breathing that melts the snow around her mouth.
In the very back of our yard we have trees with red berries. The birds eat on them all winter we are told. Isn’t it cute how the snow sits on top of the berries? Some fresh fluff makes them look like a real dessert, berries with whipping cream!
Not to worry, we are still feeding the squirrels their squirrel food. We are pretty sure the squirrels are eating from the feeders in the snow as the snow isn’t piled up as much on one side of the tray. Those critters hang off branches to grab food. They are truly nuts!
Bailie also has some snow fluff on her facial furs. From the scowl she is wearing, I don’t think she feels like having her photo taken. Oh well, Mom takes photos when she wants to, so we have a scowling one!
Finally, we have our camper bird house, also with a blanket of fresh fluff. I don’t think anyone is camping in there during the winter, so it will not cause any trouble for campers. Hope you enjoyed a bit of the beauty we got to see Sunday morning. It is so much better in person, but a few photos do manage to show some of the beauty nature gives us!
