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.

The garden shed and playhouse are novel worthy. And when I say that, I mean that a whole novel needs to be built around that amazing garden shed!!! I like these glimpses of your backyard. Now I am hungry for blueberries.
My husband has an artistic soul. 🙂
I must say your pictures are beautiful!….but I’ll still take the 70* weather we had today!
Frankly, I would mind 70* myself!
*wouldn’t * oh dear!
There is still nothing like that beautiful pennsylvania snow that sticks to everything! Sometimes I miss it!
Do you ever just want to go live in your garden shed? The little chalet looks novel enough for an Alpine setting.
Actually, yes, when it was first built, I told Gabe I just wanna move in.
