Snow Day

The first snow day of the year is upon us. What better way to spend a Friday than snuggled warm inside watching the world turn white outdoors.


It’s rare to see snow on the ground when the pond is not frozen.


I wish the duckies could enjoy the pond all winter long. Watching them on the water with the snow quietly coming down is so peaceful.


The goldfinches returned, their energetic twitters loud in the muffled quiet of the day. The first of many winter days mother nature brings to a crawl.

  1. You got quite a bit of snow. We got very little and it was gone, once the sun came up. I am not ready for winter yet, lol.

    Love that the ducks have open water and a patch of bare ground under the pine tree. Strange how last week there was a LOT of snow on MDI and none in your neck of the woods. We get that kind of phenomena here in central NY too. Stay warm and safe!
