|Fir trees are not nearly as common as the pines in our forest, but this small one is near the property.|
October passed without any snow this year. I was pretty bummed out, because I really wanted to see (and photograph) snow on my Halloween bone yard. Luckily, I was busy with other tasks and chores over the weekend and didn't get to taking down the Halloween decorations until Monday, because on Monday morning we woke to snow!
|Snow on the bone yard. I've been thinking of names for our Halloween cemetery; "Valley View" is accurate, but sounds too nice.|
After I got a few shots (and started the fire, made and drank coffee, fed the dogs, ate breakfast, promoted the new items in my Etsy shops all over Facebook, and ran errands), I took down and put away the Halloween decorations (mostly). I'd forgotten that it's almost as fun to pack them up as it is to put them up. Mwahahahaaaaaa!
It snowed off and on all day, but didn't stick around except in little patches here and there and to form the icicles at the end of the front deck handrail.
|Even though they can be dangerous if they fall and damaging if they get too heavy, icicles are one of the visual joys of moving from a temperate climate to a cold and snowy place.|
