We've had snow flurries and some blustery weather the last few weeks, but not enough to really stick. We got about an inch of snow yesterday. I know a lot of people don't like to see the first real snow, but it makes me happy.
The creek is running well. The water is too warm to start freezing yet . . .
The lichens on the rock wall by the ramp to the hay mow seem just fine in the cold . . .
The old barn sleeps peacefully . . .
The garden beds are also asleep. We planted garlic bulbs in late October and were surprised they already sprouted! We had warmer-than-normal weather in early November. I'm sure the garlic will be fine next spring.
The temperatures are expected to rise over 50 degF the next few days. I like to see the snow. It helps set the mood for the holidays . . .
