Today was a quiet day. After all the hustle bustle of the last few days, it was nice to slow down. We woke to a gentle snow fall this morning…which seemed to add to the calm of the moment. It was a day to sit by the fire and watch the snow. How luxurious!
The birds have been hungry in this cold weather. I will have to venture out to fill the feeders later.
The gardens are sleeping with their blanket of new snow.
The coop seems distant. You can see that the big run has been taken down.
It was very cold last night, and Amber has a touch of frost bite on her comb, so the girls spent last night in the coop under the stairs.
It is not s nice as Cluckingham Palace, as there is much less space, and there are NO good places to lay eggs, but it is warm and water stays unfrozen. With the snow, they ended up spending the day there as well. A series of treats breaks up the day. Hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow and they will get back outside a bit.
So all is well at Brookwood Shire. We are settling in for a few months of winter….enjoying the season.
