Beneath the winter snow

IMG_0009

A time for rest. I’d say our growing season is o v e r. Ha, well past over. With the solstice behind us, the sun is growing stronger every day which is rather exciting for us gardeners and our pasture-grazing friends. Still, it IS winter and with that comes an appreciated reprieve from our outdoor projects, well most of them anyway. This time of year our outdoor activities include: barn chores-taking care of our alpacas, geese, and chickens (who are keeping warm in their barn down the hill); ice skating on the goose pond; snow shoeing & tree trimming; blowing our driveway; and some good old ice fishing. What a treat it is when Steve comes home with some fresh fish for dinner. Taking a breath, taking a pause, embracing the season. And beneath the winter snow is life waiting to be reborn.
