I took this photo with my phone on the way to buy chicken food today, just loved the starkness of the tree against the sky.
Today has been the most exciting day ever!! We had snow!!! Not a lot, but we had snow!!!
We have been hoping for snow since the last time we had it in 2007 and here it is. It has been snowing on and off for most of the day. The kids are beyond excited and so am I!
This is the new fence we have been building to keep our chickens to one side of the garden.
Later the sun came out, so we went out into the back garden, Sandy started chasing something and we ran to see what it was. It ran and jumped into our swimming pool. It was a young Moorhen. She was so beautiful, such vibrant colours and the most amazing green and yellow legs and feet.
We quickly drove down to the pan and released her there with all the other Moorhens, I am so happy she escaped Sandy and we were able to return her to her home!
Aaaah and then to make my day even more perfect, a parcel arrived from dear Lori, such a wonderful gift, her photo book from her travels to Namibia! Every photo is beautiful and precious. I will treasure this special gift always!
Have a great day, I am off to play in the snow!!
