You saw this coming, didn’t you? The not-very-prefessional photos of sticky snow on everything… the only kind of snow pictures I take. I love our back yard. My husband has worked long and extremely hard on the slope of gravel and weeds we got when we bought the place. When snow clings to everything, it feels like I got transported to the enchantment of a gingerbread village. That’s why I went outside yesterday, early, with my bright-eyed, chirpy little girl who always gets up first.
We did a little backyard tour, then we topped it off with saucer rides down the playhouse hill, short, but very steep and speedy. When we got back into the house, the rest of the crew was just groggily starting to stir, but we had already seen this:
Grapes and Raspberries
Meditation Spot on the Deck, with Flower Pots
Cherry Tree (in foreground) Ornamental Plum (background)
Garden Shed Designed by my Husband
Ornamental Apple Tree that Blooms Profusely
I doubt you saw all the things that I saw, but I saw them, and they are real under all that fluff.
