Another big snowstorm is on the way with the first flakes beginning this evening, getting heavier as the hours progress. Sigh... think green, think pretty flowers on the deck, think spring.
These pictures were all taken yesterday after two days of sunshine had melted a lot of snow. Even then the scene was beautiful.
The snow is still deep enough we can't tell where the gravel lane ends and our driveway begins... and more on the way?
At least one can try to appreciate the beauty. The county road looks so peaceful.
The forest in winter always amazes me by its' stark beauty. The trees and brush are so thick at other times of year, one can't see into the forest at all.
I often think of the pioneers who settled this area. How difficult it must have been to forge trails and clear a home and garden in those days... much less stay warm!
The forest always wants to take back the land it lost, especially in our back yard. :)
