1 When the snow ended, I decided to go outdoors and explore. The sky was very beautiful.
2 Walking towards the carport, I startled some crows, who were feasting on fallen seeds from the bird feeders.
3 Bird feeders hang all along the back side of the carport. The wind was blowing the fluffy snow off the roof.
4 The three dogs joined me for my expedition.
5 One of the original apple trees on the property against a rapidly clearing azure sky
6 The little tenant house is situated on the other side of the drive.
7 As is this grove of bald cypress and the shed where I store my basket collection
8 We received about 6-inches of snow.
9 Chhiring was busy filling the bird feeders along the pergola. He uses a long pole with an attached hook.
10 The pole really helps to reach the feeders.
11 A view down the length of the pergola
12 The vegetable garden and the greenhouse beyond
13 One end of the equipment barn
14 The finials atop the equipment barn are Swedish or French lead-coated copper.
15 With all the snow we've been getting, I am so happy for all the protective burlap wrapping.
16 The burlap protects from windburn and also preserves the shape of the shrub from the weight of the snow.
17 The corn crib is original to the farm.
18 Here I am taking pictures.
19 The stable always looks great, especially in the snow.
20 A great angle of the paddock fencing
21 The horses were out enjoying the snow along with some Canada geese.
22 Hello, dear Sasa.
23 This weeping beech has gotten quite tall since it was planted a few years back.
24 Turn left for the stable or.....
25 Turn right for the woods.
26 One of the gurgling streams through the woods
27 The carriage road winds so nicely.
28 This clearing is a hayfield.
29 My iconic sycamore tree - the symbol of the farm
30 Another angle of this gorgeous tree
31 And another gurgling brook, which is quite icy
32 I love the way this brook looks.
33 It's as though the stones are topped with marshmallows.
34 Every time the wind blew....
35 Snow would fall from the trees.
36 Another hayfield near the contemporary house
37 Emerging from the woods and circling back towards home, I stopped at the summer house. This is the backside, which will be turned into a beautiful formal garden in the spring.

40 G.K. wanted to get out and run. He is quite fast. He has a wonderful sense of humor and really loves playing games.
