Frosted…

 

I’m missing the freezing fog this week.  We are experience extremely cold temperatures here this week.  Tonight’s low is suppose be -10 F with wind-chills bringing the temps down to -20 to -30 degrees F.  Wishing it was a bit warmer like it was in these pictures…

Did I mention we have a handful of Suffolk ewes due any day now?  Hopefully they got the memo on not delivering in this cold.  Brrrrrr….

The vibrant colors of fall were all around us until this past weekend when we had a severe weather alert.  While we didn’t receive any snow, we did have high winds that pretty much disrobed the trees of their glorious colors.  😦  I’m afraid the long  winter months are just around the corner.  I always look forward to winter and snow, I do really enjoy the cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons of autumn.  The colors are a bonus!

Hollyhocks…

My dad gifted me with some hollyhock starts last year.  They survived the winter quite well and are now showing off in the garden…
