Paper Birch

The gorgeous Paper Birch trees grow in abundance in our yard. I’ve left several areas to grow natural with the Birch and White Spruce trees. Other parts of the yard are carefully planned and planted. I love the contrasts.

Time to Clean Perennials

Between time spent helping Bob who fell and broke a rib and working in the studio I need to find a few hours to go out and clean up this perennial garden along the side of the house. I look forward to the time spent working in my yard.

Snow Piles Melting Fast

With daytime temperatures approaching 50 degrees the snow piles are shrinking quickly. Spring is here!

Snow Again

I just got all the walkways and patio cleared and it snowed again last night. I think I will just wait till it warms up and melts, that could happen any day now.

Cleared the Front Walk Again!

It seems like I have had to shovel the front walk almost every day lately. We seem to get a few inches of snow overnight regularly. This fresh snow will hasten the thaw, it is much warmer than the ground. Some days the fresh snow will be totally melted by midday.

Turning Green??

I noticed a slight tint of green beginning to show on the iris plants this morning. A sure sign that Spring is on the way!

Drifting Snow on the Patio

The wind has drifted the snow up against the house making access to the BBQ difficult. I guess tomorrow I will get the shovel and dig it out. I thought we had lost the BBQ cover, but now I see a corner of it buried in a drift.

Drifting Snow on the Patio

The drifts are getting deep, it will be a chore to get to the BBQ. I thought the BBQ cover had blown away, but I found it under a big drift of snow. I need to get the shovel out and get busy.

Blowing Cold

It is hard to see in this photo but the wind is blowing snow across the lake. It is 13 degrees with strong wind. Time to stay indoors.

Snow Chair

Yesterday my chair looked like this. Today the wind is blowing hard, I’m sure the chair will be clear of snow when the wind quits.

Growing Piles of Snow

The snow piles are over six feet tall and growing. My sweet neighbor is building these piles for me and keeping the driveway clear. Thank you Dennis!

Bird Tracks

There were some busy birds on the patio yesterday.

Snowing Again!

It just keeps snowing, a little bit here, a little bit there, a little bit everywhere, and accumulating. Time to shovel the walk again.

Heavy Load of Snow

More snow overnight, we are getting buried!

More Snow Overnight

All I’m able to do to keep up with this snow is shovel the front walk and sprinkle kitty litter on it to break-up the ice. Thank goodness I have wonderful neighbors with plows, someone always comes down and keeps the driveway open. We baked chocolate chip cookies for those guys yesterday.

Half Done

Shovel Time

Lights Out

Several days of strong winds have taken all the lights out on the big tree and on the dock. It could be a breaker, but the main box on the side of the house in the dog kennel. Unfortunately the dog kennel door is frozen shut and blocked by ice inside the kennel. Do I […]

Heavily Laden

I’m surprised these snow laden trees are still there, Normally the wind blows all the snow off. We’ve had a day or two to enjoy the beauty.

More Snow

Wow, it is getting deep out there! Most snow I’ve seen in years.
