On Tuesday, we got another 8 inches of snow, followed by at least a quarter inch of ice, and then about 4 inches of snow on top of that! Needless to say, it was a mess! Yesterday was windy so there was quite a bit of drifting, too. But we have finally dug ourselves out again, and this morning was so beautiful I decided to go for a walk (on snowshoes, of course!). The temperature was about 0F, and the ice on the trees made everything look magical!
This is a potato field behind our property...I often find moose and deer tracks out here, but not today!
All that's left of a 5 ft. fence...
I got a little carried away taking pictures of the trees with the sun shining on their icy branches!
Japanese Knotweed...it's invasive, but pretty, too. It looks very tropical in the summer.
There have been moments this winter when I felt like this goldenrod!
Some frozen mountain ash berries...
And as I get closer to home, there's my greenhouse...looks kinda like it's sitting in a styrofoam cooler!
Honeysuckle bush...this thing gets crushed almost every winter but it always bounces right back!
And there's my beloved flower garden slumbering under a thick blanket of snow!
I hope you enjoyed my morning ramble! :)
