A Winter Adventure

It snowed so we had to brave the cold to take some pictures. It very rarely snows here and accumulates even more infrequently. When it happens, we take full advantage of it.

In fact, this is only the illusion of a few inches of snow. In all reality, it’s a thick layer of ice with a dusting of snow on top. Still good for pictures.

This post will be primarily pictures since I’m still sick and would rather be laying down. Yes, I know I went out in the snow anyway. Priorities. Hopefully by next post I won’t be so ill.

Without further ado:

I like landscapes. The more stumps, the better.

Flora

Some of the flora we encountered.

Fauna

We met some new friends. I love that fat squirrel.

Study in Squirrel

I usually really REALLY hate squirrels. But something about this one won me over completely. I’m now okay with them. I even threw some peanuts on the porch for them. This particular squirrel is named Lily. I know her from the little notch on her right ear (top left photo).

  1. These photos are so pretty! More than pretty, they are beautiful. I hope I get to see snow one day. I’ve never seen it before in my life!

  2. I LOVE squirrels, they are some of my favourite animals! I have so so so many photos of them from our trip to the States over Christmas!

    Hope you feel better soon!

    • Thanks! Chubby squirrels are also slower and easier to catch and cuddle. Lol.

      In reality, I used to get attacked by the squirrels on my old college campus. They were super territorial and if you stepped too close to their trashcans, you were done for. It’s taken a long time for me to make nice again. 😉

      • I’ve been attacked by a mama bird. That was so not fun. I hope to never again experience the feeling of a bird landing on my head and pecking. No, thank you. I’m glad you’ve made peace. 😁
