The Snow Has Finally Arrived

A strange winter pattern has been giving snow, ice, and freezing temperatures to the lowlands around Portland for the last few days, and here, where you would think the snow would be piling up... nothing. Much to Jack's (and my!) consternation. But finally, this morning, we awoke to a world of white.

Matt has been very good about keeping the bird feeder full of seed this winter. These little birds were grateful!

Our old barn always looks so pretty with a coat of new fallen snow.

The winter garden...

Maybe it will be a White Christmas again this year...

The colored lights on the back deck covered in snow. I think they look good enough to eat!

So pretty! Enjoy it while its' there. And as for eating the snow on you deck lights, it DOES look good enough to eat -- but stay away from the yellow ones!! :^)
