Walking in a Winter Wonderland

It finally stopped snowing at about 9:00 Saturday night.  When I woke up on Sunday, this is what I saw when I looked out my kitchen window.

There was two feet of snow on the ground, with more than that in the drifts against the house, fence, and outbuildings

The wind was gusting, and it blew most of the snow out of the trees by afternoon.

I was going to have to deal with this much snow on my Expedition if I had any hope of going anywhere.  Fortunately, there was nothing I needed badly enough to chance a trip out onto my barely-plowed country road.

I ventured back toward the barn, trudging through snow that was deeper than the top of my Muck boots.  How many of you have visited here and sat in this chair to relax and look at the Rose Field?

I don't think I will ever get tired of looking at the barn.  I am very excited at the prospect of finishing the renovation of the yellow cottage next year, so the nursery operations can move back there.

It is so unusual to have this much snow on the ground in Virginia, especially in December.  I am really enjoying it, and the Christmas-y atmosphere it creates.
