Snow Day #6

The wind calmed down. The sun came out. The temperature rose above freezing. It was a fine day to layer up and go outside.

I went next door to empty a bucket of furnace water.

There was not a whole lot of visible melt going on.

Perhaps it is melting from the bottom up.

I reorganized the clothes dresser from the way the cats had done it. My way is better.

I will go look for some melt tomorrow. I still have nine gardens on my list for a final visit before winter sets in. That is not as far behind as it sounds. It's just a matter of getting the last few items standing. I just need this bit of winter to end.

Two will be visited all winter as weather permits. That's another story.

The wild cultivated gardens are fine without me. I can wait for more crushing snows and blasting winds to knock down as much as it can before I have to worry about cutting things down. And then only as weather permits.

What kind of winter will it be? The house is clean. What's next on the list?

Love how you did the stones. They really stand out even in the snow. Makes me think of things I have seen in Ireland & Scotland.

Sallysmom, there is a real aspect of Northern European inspiration in Creation.

Thanks for sharing your snow photos-I've missed seeing the blue snow and tree shadows here.
