Hmmm, the best laid plans…
This is how our yard looks today. White, wintery and beautiful. But ‘welcome’… Ummm, not so sure.
Our plans for today were set. Even marked down on the calendar. Today we were going to head out and get started on holiday prepping – gather the lights and decorations from storage, get all the necessary baking supplies, and yes, do a little Christmas shopping.
Well, this scene not only set the stage for the holiday spirit, but it also stole our show! Instead of hitting the pavement, we are pulling out the snow shovels to find said pavement. Where is the driveway? I know it was here yesterday…
This is not much snow, I know. In fact I think it’s just a little over half a foot, but shoveling the driveway, and lugging decorations through the snow was not in the plans for today!
This little guy did inspire us to put the feeder out though.
Notice the broken branch he’s perched on – sadly the main branch of the ornamental cherry tree couldn’t sustain the weight of the snow. This snowfall was very moist and heavy – can you tell?
So to protect the Japanese Maple from a duplicate tragedy, my awesome hubby went back out and knocked the snow off its branches.
It looks like he’s really knocking the branches, but honestly he was very gentle. Oh, and yes, he does own a jacket and boots!
Just a little taste of winter wonderland… What’s happening where you live? Does your ‘today’ have snow in the way?
