Winter Wonderland 2017!

Hi everyone! This past week we received a beautiful snowfall . I think we got around 5 inches. I love Winter and especially snowfalls like this! Very powdery! 


Snow laden pine boughs abound!



 Riley wasn't the least bit happy about the snow. He really wanted to go see what the little Sparrows were chirping about but I couldn't budge him off the back porch. 




All the little Brown -eyed Susan's had an up-do of snowy hats! And the wire fence around my kitchen garden held onto the snow as long as it could!


The Canadian Geese decided they better get it together and leave for a while.



Preacher loves the snow! He is the newest addition to our family. Someone threw him out at our neighborhood church. He stayed there for 7 seven days . Hubby would stop and feed him every morning and night. He eventually followed him to the house. Now he is my best buddy and lets us know anytime ANYTHING moves, pips or squeaks! He talks alot and he would bark every time we drove past the church. That earned him the name of "Preacher". 


Our family cemetery is here and this is where we found Preacher. My favorite snow picture. 



If you look closely you can see snow falling from the tall pines as the wind blows and the sun warms the branches.


We do not get alot of snow each year, so this was a really welcome change. Maybe we'll have a White Christmas!


Thank you for stopping by friends! I hope things are well in your part of the world!
