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..

Visit from Jack Frost

 Jack Frost is here visiting today and will probably stay for the rest of the week. We didn't expect him to be here all day. His visit is a bit unexpected. The thermometer didn't register over 24 today at home and it was foggy all day. I couldn't help but pull out the camera and take pictures of  Mother Natures gift.  We  bundled up, wool socks, boots, gloves and  my new "cuddle dud"(  I love them so much) a warm coat and out to greet Jack.

This  last picture  is looking up the driveway at 4:30 today. The chickens are fed  ( nice warm noodles) and  cracked corn. They are warm inside their coop for the night while I am cozy and warm with hot Earl Grey while the outside thermometer now reads 10.

Great Pictures!!! I love it when my farm looks like this - Mother Nature makes the most incredible mornings... I love when you walk thru those ice crystals and you can hear them shatter... Enjoy

Oooh, your Jack Frost visit was better than mine. I live amongst the trees and it takes a long time for Jack to come down from the tops.

Your pictures are postcard worthy!! Stay warm.

Wow. What pretty pictures. It's hard to believe it's just frost; although I have some pictures of just frost that look like snow here. Thanks for stopping and visiting my blog. I love hearing from everyone. You have a great blog. Love it.
