I didn't actually venture out but opened the kitchen window and zoomed in on the wheels from the hay rake that we have in our yard as decoration...probably much to the amusement of the locals.
It makes for some scenic winter shots, though,
don't you think?
You can just see the neighbouring abandoned house peeking out from behind the evergreen tree that sits in the middle of our "yard."
We're wishing that the old house would finally cave in under the weight of the snow...
but instead it seems it's going to be me who caves under the heaviness of winter.
Stick scribbles and polka dots.
Somewhere between the bottom edge of this photo and the bare branches of the lilac tree lies our driveway. I doubt we'll get ploughed until tomorrow sometime. Pierre's going to have fun trying to drive our old Mazda up it tonight when he gets home. But he's from Quebec so knows all about snow and winter driving. Definitely can't say the same about myself...
I'm still looking for snow drops and daffodils to be blossoming at this time of year; but the only kind of snow drops for a couple of months yet will be the kind that make you shiver if they get between you and your woollies.
