Winter Wonderland

Two days ago there was an unusual winter storm with a very heavy snow. The snowfall began as darkness fell, so we didn't see the results until morning. We awoke to an enchanted winter wonderland, something out of Swan Lake. Every little branch had 1-2 inches of snow on it, looking whiter and frostier than a typical snowfall. We went snowshoeing through the conservation land in back. Here are some photos:

Definitely a morning to remember during the dog days of July!


  1. Wow...It looks prettier when it's someone else's snow:)
    We lucked out and only got about an inch and most of that melted today. It's going to be in the 50's this week.Yeah!!

  2. When there is snow around the world looks like a fairytail. Beautiful vieuws.
    Have a nice week

  3. Thank you both. Wishing you a good week as well.

  4. Such beautiful photos! We got snow too and it went away quickly.

  5. Wow! that is so pretty!

    My blog is I'd love it if you wanted to follow me.

Spring Bride Duet

For a wedding gift to me, my husband bought me the Spring Bride Duet - a combination of Cosmopolitan Darwin Hybrid tulips and Stainless Daffodils. We planted them in the fall of 2015, and they have faithfully come up each year. I thought the daffodils and tulips were a good combination for us in case the deer ate the tulips, the daffodils would still be standing. Also, tulips can fade over time but daffodils multiply. So far, both have come up faithfully, and beautifully, each year, and the deer have left them alone. I would buy Darwin Hybrids again - they have really strong stems and huge flowers! The Cospmopolitans color changes over the time they are up. They come up a pale peach/pink, and then slowly shift to a brighter pinkish/red.

Busy Bees

We took a walk through the conservation land behind the house, and found that while we were taking a respite, others were very hard at work harvesting pollen from the Prairie Asters:

Such a beautiful office to work in:

Moondance Roses

Two are blooming so beautifully right now. They captivated me for an afternoon, taking pictures of them from all angles.

The Russian Sage is framing them so nicely, and doesn't seem to interfere with their growth, it seems to almost protect them.
