A quick snapshot before heading out for the day! A bit more fog and a bit more frost but in the morning light it makes these Snowberries (Symphoricarpos albus) look that much more delightful ... as if they've been dusted with sugar! The deer population should have plenty to browse on this Fall and Winter.
When two seasons clash (in this case, Autumn and Winter), it would appear, Mother Nature's way of resolving the conflict is by painting over the entire landscape with a layer of beautiful hoar frost and warm morning sunlight! It was a BRISK -7C this morning but her tactics worked ... at least I thought so!
As the snow flakes fell off and on last night, leaving a dusting of snow on the landscape and frozen droplets dangling on the rather 'naked' trees, I was struck with the reality that our 'Autumn' would once again, be short and sweet!
Saturday was full of "dusty trails" as we spent the day hauling more feed home!
Sunday, October 26, 2014:
Today, despite the very cold wind (Brrr...), we gathered up the girls, the babes and the boys and moved them a 'smidge' closer to home! It's hard to believe the end of October is rounding the corner ...
Here I am!!! I know ... it would appear I am missing a month's worth of images. To say "life" this Fall has been hectic would be a bit of an understatement ... so, before I get even further behind, here are a couple of shots from today. The Snow Geese were on the fly ... which they have been for awhile but today seemed so different ... their flight pattern so intent on a "non-stop, southbound" direction! I reiterate ... I love migration except when you are saying "good-bye!"
** With any luck, I'll update that missing month before the snow flies!**
