When fall meets winter, it is a lovely marriage. On Monday we were busy romping and playing in the leaves. They forecast a dusting of snow overnight but we woke up to about three inches of fluffy white snow Halloween morning. It was absolutely beautiful and fun, all in one.
The only downside to fall and winter together is we still need to get all the leaves off the lawn. Sadly, the snow is not staying with us for the winter, so we will be able to take care of the leaves once the snow is gone. Many trees still have leaves that need to fall and we hope that happens soon.
Leaves on the snow with their pretty colors and bright sunshine are gorgeous. We saw these three on the walking path Halloween morning. They look staged but Mother Nature put them there.
Fun In Fall Leaves
Monday Madison and I had a blast racing through all the leaves on the lawn. It is so much fun with the crunching under our paws as we run.
Go, Madison, Go. It is so pawsome that her limping injury really is gone so she can play hard. For a short GBGV, she has some good speed.
You know I love to run. My body isn’t built to be a real fast runner, but I do my best to be quick. Here I am working on my turns.
Fall Meets Winter
And then we woke up to a few inches of the white stuff. Fall meets winter on Halloween. I guess the leaves dressed as ghosts with the white snow cover. Bailie loves to sniff around and feel the sunshine on her furs. The leaf color is so pretty on the white ground.
Of course, snow needs to be plowed. I’m happy to turn my big nose into a snowplow.
All four of us get some good snow pusses when the snow is fresh.
Snow and cold brings out energy in all of us and it also puts a smile on our faces. Olivia is a perfect example of this.
Look! I can fly too! I’m more of a heavy cargo plane, but I do manage to get off the ground. My ears provide the lift.
It wouldn’t be a fun snow post without Olivia and I having fun together. Hopefully we can get these leaves cleaned up in the next week or two and then more snow can come and stay for the winter in our yard. Fall meets winter is a fun time of year!
