Last week I awoke to a winter wonderland. Everything was transformed and blanketed with a thick layer of snow. Nature sure does put my art to shame!
I trotted out to feed Curly cat, who was not at all impressed. She kept on giving me the slow blink as though this was all my fault. She gobbled her meal down, and then, without so much as a backward glance, tiptoed gingerly back to her shed.
Even clearing her a path across the lawn and clearing the snow from around her quarters did little to improve her mood. Seriously sullen she was!
The dogs were hysterical. They’ve never seen snow before and literally barked insanely at it. Totally bewildered they were. It was so funny watching them walking in it. Annie kept leaping up in the air while Sam pranced about in the most ridiculous manner trying to catch the falling snowflakes. I couldn’t get a pic for laughing.
The pristine snow was trampled in minutes. But oh, what fun they had!
They had an absolute ball galloping in the snow then they both fell in the snow covered pond. I left them to it and set about sorting food and water for the birds. As fast as I put hot water out for them, it froze. I pity the poor birds in this weather.
My poor daffodil shoots may suffer some ill affects after this freeze. One actually has a flower about to open ……this is the problem after a mild winter, everything is beginning to shoot up and then really struggles to withstand the sudden severe frosts.
