Welcome Winter!

Winter Weather

The first snow of 2022 has arrived at our mountaintop home. The temperature is just above freezing this morning, so the beautiful blanket of white won’t last long.

Winter Bird Retreat

A well-stocked bird pantry graces our front porch: fresh water, seeds, and suet. Our favorite winter birds have returned: the titmouse, nuthatch, and juncos. A pair of cardinals, and another of mourning doves feed on the snow-covered ground below.

Winter 2022

The garden beds are buried in a half-foot of snow, dormant until St. Patrick plantings.

Greenhouse in Winter

A robin-egg blue sky peeks out from the waning storm clouds. We enjoy all of these lovely sights from the fireplace-warmed great room.

Enjoy the winter, be safe and stay sound.
