This is on my mind .. snow and leaves

Snow and leaves

Snow has come really early this year, while the last of the leaves have just fallen from the trees.
I've spent a lot of time outdoors tending to the birds, our ducks and chicken .. and the wild birds who also appreciate some extra food in the cold weather.
It's rare for us to get much snow, especially snow that lasts, and it's very rare to get it so early in winter.
I like the crispness and sparkles of the snow, but I'm less keen on the icy road conditions.
If I could just find a BIG pile of leaves , I'd be very tempted to hibernate until Spring ;-)

Thanks Rhonda for suggesting this Friday photo thread.


  1. I saw on the news, Ferris, that the UK and all of western Europe was getting hammered by snow. I hope it's just a freak thing and doesn't last. Otherwise you'll be hibernating under those leaves and I'll miss chatting with you. :) Keep warm!

  2. Thanks Grace - it is great to be able to stay in touch, even when the weather means that travel can be difficult.
    So, maybe I won't hibernate just yet :-)

  3. We are seeing reports of your snow too. It looks like a cold winter ahead for you. Love the photo of the leaves in the snow. I wish I could walk through it. Thanks for sharing, Ferris.

  4. I have enjoyed your blog. I found it through `Down-to-Earth`.
    We have had deep snow in the south of England over the past few days.

    Thanks for the post about No Dig Gardening. Something well worth trying.

  5. We are having a record snowfall here in Kentucky too! It was a hot hot summer and this is very unusual. It was 70 degrees F just a couple of weeks ago.

  6. Thanks Rhonda Jean, Dartford Warbler and Mary for stopping by.

    Glad I've been an inspiration for No Dig Gardeneing Dartford Warbler - I hope you give it a go.

    I've just put some more snow pictures up now too.


I love hearing from people who have dropped by to read the blog, so please don't be shy about leaving a comment.
