Hello dear friends, our weather forecast is calling for about 10 cm of snow by tomorrow morning which is great news for those of you looking forward to a white Christmas! The long term forecast shows temperatures well below freezing so any snow we get should stick around for a while.
I am practicing my night photography using a tripod. Judging by the number of photos I have deleted compared to the number of photos kept it appears that more practice is in order!😥
This little stone section of our home was part of the renovations we had done about 3 years ago. We call it the portico entry and it is the nearest entrance to our old driveway. Inside the portico entry we have a coat closet (the first one in our old stone house!), a little area to sit to put on boots or shoes, and a bathroom with a walk in shower.
I have quite a case of Christmas spirit this year and have been putting up trees inside and outside. This tree is in our gazebo.
It is quite simply decorated with lights, a garland and miniature decorations. Later I will take some additional photos of the decorations which I think look wonderful covered in snow.
This is a view down the lane towards the barn.
The koi pond is now covered for the winter. The fish are dormant and will over-winter in the pond. At the deepest section the pond is about 5 feet deep. A bubbler will run all winter allowing the fish to have oxygen. The gazebo Christmas tree is just visible in the distance.
Part of the front of our house.
The snow is coming down more quickly than I thought! The summer furniture is now the winter furniture.
This is a partly new and partly salvaged fence which will run between the portico entry and the fence that runs just behind the gazebo. Next year we will add a gate. The other side of the fence is a secluded little area that we are calling the Secret Garden.
I hope that you enjoyed this refreshing little stroll in the snow. Thank you for visiting!
