Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Yes, we still have snow












Oh, what a pretty afternoon with Blue Sky over our  Blue Sky Farm. It is melting slowly but it is still pretty cold outside. This first picture is taken from the house facing west  and across the road looking at the hillside covered in untouched snow.  Second picture, as you come down our driveway from the road our tracks are visible as the snow begins to melt.  The third photo coming south along the house our shrubs are blanketed in a nice 4-5 inches of frozen snow. There are a few sunken tracks of Buster's and perhaps a deer. Now to the back of the house  here is the path to the "Girls' Coop. we found it still mighty slippery and covered in a nice layer of ice & snow.. That is one of our apple trees, I do hope the winter won't be too harsh on it and  that next Spring it and the other two trees will be full of blossoms for our bees to pollinate. We spent some time this morning before the sun was shining as bright as it is now cleaning out the coop and repairing the cage.
some how other birds are coming to the girl's "dinner table" uninvited and staying because they don't know how to find the exit. We were able  to patch a space or two in the cage area, but it is amazing how they can get through such small holes. I guess they prefer the chicken food over the bits we put in their feeders.(Or they are just picky eaters.) which ever it is every birds is taken care of ... they see to that.

It is still dry here in west Texas, and your snow looks wonderful. It's always good to watch the birds fly in to eat! blessings,Kathleen

Beautiful photos and what a great way to bring in the month of December. We had our first snow this weekend. I’ve so enjoyed it. We didn’t get as much as you did though.
