Snow, Day Two

IMG_2739 (1)Those of you who live in colder parts of the country (or the world) will probably be chuckling under your breath at our “snow.”  There is maybe an inch or two of snow on the ground.  It’s supposed to snow a little more tonight, but I fully expect it all to melt away by tomorrow or the next day.  Knowing that, it’s much easier to appreciate how beautiful it is in the meantime.

IMG_2738Look at the farmhouse in the snow!  Sometimes I still can’t believe that it’s done and we’re here.  It’s so beautiful (although, to be honest, I’m not a fan of the green color on the house and I am trying my hardest to convince Jasper that we need to repaint it RED this summer)!

IMG_2865I was just pruning these raspberries and marionberries!  There were little green buds on them!  I hope they’ll still be there when this melts because I was so looking forward to eating fresh berries this summer.

IMG_2789The girls, of course, are in heaven.  Tromping around, sledding, building snowmen.  Enjoying their days off from school (yes, they cancelled school for this!).

IMG_2841Even Jasper’s been getting in on the action.  And thank goodness for that, because he’s much better at playing in the snow than I am.

IMG_2745I would rather be right here during this brief, snowy interlude.  In fact, I think that’s what I’ll do.

Stay safe out there, fellow Pacific Northwesterners.  And to the rest of you: please don’t laugh at us too hard!

      Thank you! Unfortunately, I’ve also got deer and elk hopping into the forest! I didn’t build this fence, I just inherited it. We’ve been using a combination of Liquid Fence and motion sensor deer sprinklers, but at some point we’ll be buckling down and building a more utilitarian deer fence!

    I know what you mean it’s crazy to have this so late in the season for the Pacific Northwest … We have almost 6 in here in Portland and it’s no joke with so many things in the garden budding… By the way I love the green on your house but I can see why you would want red as well – primary colors rock!
