First snowfall

Yesterday we had lovely weather: high temp 50F, sunny, beautiful.

Fat quail in the driveway:

Fat turkeys in the field:

Today is quite a contrast. We've had frosts and the faintest dusting of snow in the last couple weeks, but today we had our first real snowfall. Not much – maybe half an inch – but very pretty.

To Darcy, snow is just a bonus on his walks.

Every needle and leaf was dusted.

The rocks somehow looked more muscular.

The spider webs caught a lot more snow than flies.

The fat quail in the driveway were suddenly a lot more visible.

Needless to say, the bird feeder has been popular.

The snow isn't expected to last – temps get back into the 40s by Thursday – but this is a portend of things to come. I'm so grateful we have our firewood in and our cookstove installed.

Let the winter come.


  1. I just love your photos. You have quite an eye.

  2. Fried quail and eggs for breakfast. Honestly you guys have landed in a wild game smorgasbord.

  3. Lucky you! We are still, impatiently, waiting…
