Changing Of The Guard
photo by Mrs. Mac
We had a beautiful extended autumn this year .. warm and mild. Then it all changed when we woke up with a few inches of snow yesterday morning ... with another four inches during the day. Bright autumn day to .. beautiful white and black scene .. just with a few winks of sleep. Our winters can last a long time in the North Woods ... five to seven months of the year can be expected. This winter is supposed to be a 'la nina' weather pattern with heavy snowfall. The first few months are great and a time of rest from gardening and kitchen canning work. By February I'm ready for a little vacation to a warm sunny spot for about a week. That's just long enough to get over the winter time blues and make spring and summer easier to wait for.
Have a blessed Sunday!
