I had planned on going back out this morning to get some more photos of the snow covering the trees. The snow fell so gentle and blanketed the trees, they looked like flocked Christmas trees – only much better!! We ventured out early, but the wind came up and it was more like a blizzard, so enjoy these photos from yesterday.
Native (some say invasive, but I like them!) Red Cedar
I don’t know what model this old red truck is, but it was so pretty in the snow.
It’s a beautiful autumn day, or maybe a winter day. Started snowing early this morning and has been snowing all day.
Dinner tonight won’t be on the patio.
Wylie likes to ride with his head out the window.
Beautiful amazing sunrise(s)
Wylie stuck in a snow drift. When his feet get cold, he sits and waits for me to come and pick him up.
I’m going to use my Farmers’ Almanac to start a fire. How could they be right in predicting this cold snowy weather?!? I don’t know how much snow we received as it’s blowing and drifting. Wylie and I went out this morning at 4:30 ( his idea not mine) and was surprised that the paper had been delivered. We didn’t go back out until 9 to do our chores, that way the hens would be done laying their eggs. They are still keeping us supplied with plenty of eggs! I didn’t let them outside today, it’s way to windy and cold, we would have to shovel their run again, as they don’t like their feet in the snow. They are very comfortable and content in their coop. Always glad to see me because I’m giving them lots of extra healthy and nutritious treats, meal worms, homemade flock block, and some milo heads that we gathered after they harvested the field.
The goats are doing fine. They have their hay hut, which Bill uses to get over the fence into the horses hay.
Enjoy the pictures, I’m staying inside the rest of the day (maybe) cooking comfort food, old fashion pot roast with potatoes, carrots and onions and butterscotch pudding.
The beautiful Christmas season is over and we are gradually returning to everyday day winter life on the farm. It was so wonderful spending the holiday with family. May God bless us and keep us safe, healthy and happy in the days to come.
Here are a few photos from a very cold and wintery Kansas.
