This morning Mr. Squash and I awoke to what we thought was snow! It wasn't predicted - the weather here has been cold and sunny for quite some time now, but it sure looked like snow! Then I remembered that Freezing Fog had been predicted! Fairy Frost sounds better, don't you think?
Here is a shot right outside the front door. This is our new winter flag - we're beginning to amass a small collection of them! It's something I've always wanted, but this is the first house where it's been possible to have them.
Looking the other way at my car parked in the driveway.
Aside from the Dogwoods, this is my favorite plant in the front yard - European Cranberry. It always puts on a show no matter what the season!
Speaking of the Dogwoods, isn't this gorgeous! Click on any photo for a better look.
On my way back inside I snapped a photo of our wreath. I was going to try making one this year, but on a trip to the farm store this one called my name!
I ventured out the back steps to get a couple more photos. Some years the fog can stick around this part of the Columbia Basin for weeks. I don't remember any last year and I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for this year. But wait....it's Fairy Frost, not fog....
Looking the other way at the Juniper trees which hold some of our firewood. (In case you're wondering, the wood has not spread the trees as you see - they were leaning apart prior to the wood being stacked.)
I have absolutely no sewing to show that isn't a gift. I've also been doing a bit of holiday baking. Today will be a peanut butter fudge recipe I found here. I've made several of Marie's recipes and become quite a fan!
So what about you? How are your holiday plans coming?
