It was my favourite kind of winter day out. When the air is just cold enough for a light bit of snow, blanketing the trees and making the air so still and quiet. There was supposed to be a snow storm today, or as CB’s Nan would put it, we were supposed to “get some dirt.” The snow is starting up now, but this afternoon all we saw was some dainty snowflakes flitting about. The weather so mild I wandered around in my t-shirt to take some pictures.
The house looked very cute when I went trudging out to throw some food out for the fox so I came back out again with the camera.
Checked in on the old cast iron tub out back of Joan’s house. It was tempting to crawl into that big fluffy pile of snow. It hasn’t felt like Christmas to me yet, but it did this afternoon taking pictures, everything all red, white and green.
Last of the lonely golden apples gathering snow on the tree.
One of my favourite things to see every day when I come home from work, CB’s wood pile. Makes me feel warm just looking at it.
Little pink birdhouse on the birch tree. No birdies inside.
Some old bricks and CB’s neglected hammer
An old bottle and my neglected apples
Angelica dries out into these lovely starry wands that would be nice in a christmas tree if you spray painted them silver or gold.
Old fireplace grills leaning up against the back of Joan’s house.
Merry Christmas !
