We would like to wish all our American blogging friends a safe and
Happy Thanksgiving !
Country Gal , Papa, Miggs & Harley
I looked outside my window first thing and saw we had a fairly hard frost so off I went to take photos . Got my coat , boots fingerless gloves so I can work my camera better and yes still in my jammies I know but they are fleece and soo warm lol ! So out I go .
It was still dusk and the sun hadn’t come up yet so the light was that blueish dark colour .
Then as I was taking more photos and searching I then looked up and this is what I saw of the sun rise !
It is amazing how the cold air changes the lighting of the sun as it rises and how the colours take in the sky ! It was soo pretty !
I then got back to looking for more frosty things to photography !
I just love the crystals that form on everything especially during a hard frost and they form even more so !
Looks like snow flakes but it is frost crystals , fascinating I find it to be !
Miggs my photo buddy was with me of course !
Waiting to go for our walk so I then went in to get dressed finish my cuppa tea I made then Miggs and I went for a walk ! It was nice peaceful out there . The sun went in and it got cloudy but that was ok we went for our walk anyways . When we got back I thought well it is cold now and the snows have already started here and there so I might as well bite the bullet and put up my winter garden flag !
I have it attached to our Birch tree . Well I went in at that point and it started to snow .
I guess me putting up my winter flag was a sign to mother nature . Miggs was out on yard patrol as it was snowing keeping the birdies safe as they feast at the feeders from any feral cats lurking about looking for breakfast !
It is an off again on again kind of day weather wise , cloud , snowy with sun patches . Guess winter really has arrived now .
Until next time !
The day started out cloudy and mild then it started to snow tiny snow flakes at first then big snow flakes . Miggs and I went for a nice walk in it and it was quiet in the valley as the snow fell , so peaceful and pretty ! When we got home from our walk it wasn’t so peaceful as the birdies were chatting up a storm and feasting at the feeders like mad . I took a few photos of the snow as I do every year to keep some what of a journal of each season and it’s changes . Why this time last year we were very deep in snow and very cold .
Falling snow is a challenge to capture lol !
You can see way in the back to the top right of this garden pic I still have English daisies growing , they have been growing and blooming since the beginning of the summer I take it they like the hot and cold temps .
Miggs loves it as you can see here . Papa was outside in his shed moving about the tractors the snow blower and digging out the pet safe salts , just getting things prepared for the snowy season that will be here even more so soon .
I always find the first snow fall or two soo pretty and it really changes the look of the land even if it melts in a few hours like it already has !
Until next time .
