A Touch of Snow

We awoke this morning to a light dusting of snow…our first of the season.  The weather is predicted to turn colder in the next few days…with blustery winds and more snow/rain showers possible.  Sigh…It IS mid November but I am never ready for the cold.  

Still, it was quite lovely this morning as the sun rose and the gentle coating of snow glistened softly.

IMG_0586Even the greenhouse looks a bit frosty.  There is a stillness that seems to accompany snow.

The girls were not bothered at all and ran into the big run when I let them out.  They did their usual scratching and pecking..

…but were more than happy to come in again for some nice warm oatmeal.  Yum!

So despite the snow, it was a pretty typical morning at Brookwood Shire.

And in the greenhouse…are the covers protecting the plants?  

So far so good.
