The turkeys were out bright and early looking for something to fill their hungry bellies. They like to eat the leftovers from the bird feeder.
Annie was up to her usual "nosy" snow tricks...
We went on a walk. We spotted some turkeys in the distance. I had to keep reminding Annie to focus on our walk! We are walking, not chasing!
There was not a color of color to be seen, just shades of white and brown...
Our tracks in the snow... it is delightful to walk in the snow, and leave your footprints.
There were tiny ice pellets coming down as we walked. As they hit my face, they hurt a bit!
We went back into our forest to explore the beauty there. The gentle beauty of the trees was lovely to see. And no ice pellets in the forest!
Annie loved exploring all the smells, but stayed close to me.
It was amazing to see all the "fingers" or "hands" on the fir trees. The snow had settled on their frothy limbs in such a way as to make it appear that the trees all had hands and fingers!
Do you see what I mean.. it was pretty amazing! The snow makes such fun creations!
Typical Annie with snow on her nose..
A close-up of the giant snowy hands!
I brushed the snow off of one of the limbs, and it bounced back up to its usual place on the tree. It was a delight to walk through the forest and see the beauty the snow had created.
Not a terribly remarkable day for pictures... but delightful nonetheless! I enjoy winter, and am thankful for the snow that we have. I say, if it is going to be winter... let's have winter! The weather forecast ~ thankfully! ~ is that we will get more snow over the next week or so, and so it looks very promising that we will have snow for Christmas. I hope we get enough to go sledding. :)
