The midwest is in the midst of a winter storm today and schools and businesses have told everyone to stay home and wait out the snow fall. I took a quick look outside and thought 'how lovely' - the snow makes everything look peaceful and clean.
The beauty of winter
Snowfall totaled 10-11.5 inches (depending on what part of town and who did the reading), but today is clear, sunny and cold (2 degrees at 8:00 am - 6 degrees at Noon and 8 degrees at 3:00 pm). The snow is very light and crisp, so the wind caused drifts in parts of the garden. The neighborhood kids are enjoying a 'snow day' break from school and many businesses opened late, to allow workers time to 'dig out' before going to work.
Sounds about like us. We have a small lot and the snow is piled all over. I admire your landscaping. It has been my dream to improve our lot, but my retired mechanic DH is such a perfectionist that it is slow going getting him to do the work. He is getting into the vegetable gardening though and has helped me engineer several raised beds and grow lights. There's just nothing like being able to walk all around your place and see what growing, blooming. Even the snow is pretty, though enough already. i'll bet we have have a good growing season this year because of it!
