We had a new arrival at the farm this weekend: our first snow.
Flurries started on Friday night, and by Saturday morning we had a light dusting over everything.
Our new landscape drew me out of the house first thing, just adding snow boots to my pyjamas
At the front of the house, I had an open view over the fields to the farm across the road.
Even the burrs look photogenic when they’re wearing a cap of snowflakes.
Behind the barn, the lane to the back field and the woods also look particularly photogenic under a blue sky, bright sun and fresh snow.
At the bottom of the meadow, the creek was flowing into the pond amongst the snow-covered boulders.
Back up at the house, our cozy abode under its first dusting of snow.
Temperatures dropped over the past few days, so the snow stayed over the weekend. I’m hoping to have a true Canadian winter this year after a snowless season last year, so I’m happy to see the early snowfall.
What would be your reaction if you woke up to snow? Would you be outside in pyjamas and boots too? For some of my more southern readers, I expect a snowy morning would be a bit unexpected. Anyone from more northern climes, have you had your first snowfall yet? What type of weather are you hoping for this winter?
Wow your farm land looks so amazing! It looks like such a wonderful spot and the dusting of white snow is just picture perfect!
The novelty still hasn’t worn off for me, which is a very nice feeling!
We had some light furries over the weekend and this morning there is a dusting that stayed. No PJ and boots for me though. Its very very cold, or at least it feels that way to my unaccustomed bones. (from south/east Ontario)
I always find the temperature change in the fall feels very, very cold. I’m sure -5 in February would feel positively balmy, but for now I’m chilled too.
Thanks, Julie! I obviously thought so too. 🙂
It all looks so lovely! I miss snow.
I think you would be really shocked if you woke up to snow where you are, Daisy! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the comment.
Haha! Yes, I agree. We lived close to Chicago for a while and I loved it when it snowed. I miss it sometimes, but I do enjoy the weather here, too.
I loved watching the snow this weekend too – we just got a dusting (I live quite close to Westlake Musings), but I hope we get dumped on soon. Bring it on..
I’m with you, Heidi. Bring it on… but maybe wait until our new snowblower arrives tomorrow!
The photos are just beautiful! I love seeing everything under a blanket of snow. We don’t get snow every season. And it usually doesn’t find us until after January 1. We’re blessed to have a view of snow-capped peaks though and that’s enough for me!
Your view sounds beautiful!
They teased us with possible snow flurries last night here in East Central Illinois but got nothing. I absolutely love a good snow and I am hoping after an extremely mild winter last year, we make up for it this year!
Sounds like your experience was the same as ours last year. I really missed the snow last year. We’ll keep our fingers crossed this year!
It’s so beautiful. How can people not love snow? It’s like an enchanted world arrives, overnight. I am definitely in the boots-and-pyjamas camp!
