Our First Snow Fall
Warm & cozy inside the homestead looking out the windows our first snow fall October 30th has arrived this winter season quite early. Twenty years ago it snowed the third weekend of October. The earliest I remember.
The fall flag dose not match the winter wonder land of the gardens.
All fish are accounted for. They must be oh so cold. The pumps & fountain were removed just in time. The pumpkins peeking from under the snow.
No swinging for a frozen butt would be gotten.
For sure there will be no picnic anytime soon. To thinks just last Thursday evening Sam trimmed around the rock beds & mowed this lawn. No longer a lush bright green lawn but snow covered powder white.
Oh boy these chickens do not like the snow. Slow to come out & scratch. Grace & Ruth never did come out of the house. They waited for the food tray to be filled & the water to be changed. Festus & all the girls retreated to the house to eat & stay in for the rest of the day.
Old cheerios are the special treat today for the ducks.
Sam's little dog loves the snow. When not on his leash he runs through the snow like a wild dog racing. He is not loose often for he dose not like the neighbor lady so it is best to keep a good eye on him.
A few of the homestead kitties eating some scattered treats before being put in their outside house & being fed until evenings run time about the homestead grounds. If the others come soon they will miss the special treats. There are five total. I lost my special little kitty Timmy a short time back. Timmy Benny's twin brother was involved in a auto accident. Very sad day that was. Benny gets extra attention since he no longer has Timmy to play & frolic his days away with.
Blessings Til Next Time!
