The garden is snoozing, of course, but we had snow this week so there is a bit more to look at other than cold hard ground.
We also had visitors
The dog was watching the deer and they were watching her
We have had many many cardinals at the feeders as well as other birds
I don’t think we will be using the new porch for awhile
I am happy we have the snow. The plants really like having a warm blanket to snooze under until spring.
Those birds are so beautiful! Snow is always such a treat, brings with it beauty, stillness and calm!
thanks! i checked your blog.. looks like quite an adventure.. where do you farm?
Washington State, a tiny little town called Everson, right on the Canadian/US border.
I could tell you our zone – based on a map, but it would be incorrect, we have a tiny micro climate thanks to the Fraser River Valley outflow! It can be freezing and horrible by us, but 5 miles away not!! makes things interesting!
Gorgeous area…my son and his family used to live in Seattle so we traveled about the state a bit. That microclimate would be challenging.. we are a solid zone 5 here. Your flowers are beautiful.. I got Erin’s Floret book for Christmas… can’t wait to dig into it this winter
Are the forest trees mostly sugar maple and some sort of oak?
Snow makes everything so beautiful. So many gorgeous cardinals, which we don’t have here (Seattle area.) It must be thrilling to see all those flashes of red!
sugar maple, norway maple, oak of many kinds, some chestnut, black walnut, locust..
Love all your cardinals, beautiful birds. And they keep the Christmas theme going!
Thanks Jessica… they really are beautiful… the females are here too so we should have lots more of them this summer after they hatch
