We had our first snowfall on November 18th here in the
Hocking Hill's. Ohio has had several days with snow flurries
Over the weekend we got 3 inches of the white stuff, so
all the signs are leading us to believe we are going to be in
for a snowy winter.
The picture above is of the window on the potting bench
that I made in early summer.
I wish it still looked like this one....
But all that I can pot these days outside would be
snow flakes. The potting bench is now idle and
covered with snow. Big fluffy flakes of glistening
The pots are upside-down so they will not
freeze and break.
The only thing under the bench now is the neighbors cat
who is closely watching the birds coming to the nearby
bird feeders and birdbath.
Slanting, driving, plastering sideways, on the trees snow.
Snowman, making snow.
So, alright I did not make a snowman out of the snow.
I am -- years old and too stiff to make a real snowman
but I would still love to make a real one. I can hear the neighbors
now "what is that silly old women doing out there playing in the snow"
and shaking their heads.
But it is a snowman covered with snow.
All of this is leading somewhere though, I promise.
