    Beautiful pics from you both Branka and Steve. I love the pic of the three graylags in flight - wonderful composition.

    Default Jan 29th 2010 - Snow Day

    My photos are not pretty, but I wanted to show how snowy it got here today. Just a few days ago it was warm! Sheesh!

    A view toward the Greenhouse out the back door!


    Snow on the handrail of the porch


    A look out the front of the house towards town


    Brrr!

    Thanks, Yew.

    Here are a couple of shots from this morning:







    Seems we got a lot of snow for our part of the world. This happens every so often, but it has been a few years. Usually we just get ice.
