Snow in North Carolina

It snowed overnight and due to the warm weather, it melted by noon time.

I went out to photograph while it was still snowing early this morning.

No flowers were harmed by the snow.

As for the animals, I’m glad the snow laid on top of the net. The chickens and ducks were dried this morning.

It looked like a white tent from a distance.

North Carolina Winter

I’m happy with one or two snowfalls per year and this year we had an early snow in early-January.

Max loved the snow also, and not afraid of the cold at all.

He certainly can move a lot faster than Bo

I don’t have a lot going on in the garden, and the duck pond is filling up with the rains and melting snow.

The winter vegetables were buried in the snow for several days and amazingly they survived.

This year was extremely cold and the snow stayed for several days. The main roads cleared up and I ventured out to Murray’s Mills to take a few photos.

Across the pond people were sledding down the hill. I don’t think we’ll have another snowfall this year and looking forward to the Spring.

Spring is in the air

It’s the end of January and might be too early for Spring in most area, I guess for us also just last week we had snow. The countryside came to a halt, and no work and school for most of us._MG_1845

I certainly don’t mind getting stuck here.

As I was taking this picture below, I thought to myself this would be a good place to walk. I think I found myself a new walking trail.

It’s extremely warm today, I was out walking and heard a woodpecker pecking a tree.

It was so high up, I’m glad I was able to capture it with my telephoto lens.

My daffodils are budding now, it’s certainly is an early sign of Spring.
