Well the weather is behaving a little nicer today, but I guess it won't last and supposed to dip in temp again by later today. It's a lovely sunny 22 degrees so around here it's a perfect day for a stroll around the back hill and fairy garden (not below zero today...yet - woo hoo!)
As you can see our bay is still quite frozen and under a layer of snow yet. The sun is shining so pretty through the tree branches and making such interesting shadows.
Lots of white yet, but it goes so nicely with that blue sky doesn't it? Everything still sleeping underneath that snow. I can't wait until Spring wakes it all back up!!
Here's Felix. He's tucked in so snuggly under his blanket of snow. He watches over my daughter's fairy garden outside her bedroom window.
Here is Felix in a view through my daughter's bedroom window last Spring. Although we didn't really have Spring the past 2 years....just went from Winter right to Summer. Two years ago I remember lilacs still in bloom over our 4th of July celebrations as everything bloomed so late. The harsh winters really took a toll on our barberry bushes too and they just won't seem to come back. We're going to give this garden area and others around our house a whole new clean up and look this Spring (as it's sounds like we may actually have Spring this year!)
Back to the reality of our snow covered world though.
Sweet little Ruby loves it outside in every season!
The railings and the benches still have their pretty snow sleeves on too. I love that it almost looks like a ruffle pattern.
