“To be interested in the changing seasons
is a happier state of mind than to be
hopelessly in love with spring.”

Mother nature has been having her way with us here in the Northeast, USA. I'm not complaining though. We, here in southern NJ, have not had much snow this winter compared to some of our northern neighbors. There is about 8 or 9 inches on the ground right now after yesterday's bombardment. It really is quite beautiful and according to the reports, we will be in the 40's and 50's by late next week. I hope they are right, but today I'm going to just savor the beauty of our winter wonderland.
Here are some photos taken yesterday at The Sandarosa.
|I saw three bluebirds yesterday. I hope|
they come back when it's a little warmer.
|Rita's nice 'n toasty with a thick winter coat|
and her double layer of blankies.
|Several flocks of turkeys and numerous other backyard|
birds are cleaning us out of sunflower seeds.
|Lots of melting and rain prior to the snow|
made for some new little ponds on the property.
|The snow stared as rain which acted like glue, so the|
snow's all stuck to the branches. Very pretty, but
could be hazardous to the trees and electric wires.
|Jerry's art garden in monotone.|
|Jerry has a love/hate relationship with the snow|
because he gets to play with his favorite farm toy.
It's a 1949 Massey-Harris-Ferguson.
|They broke the mold when they made this|
machine and when they made the driver.
They just don't make 'em like that anymore!
As always, thanks for your continued friendship and feedback.
Happy creating everyone!
