1 After snowing all day on Monday, this is what the farm looked like on Tuesday morning. That's my Friesian, Sasa, way off in the distance.
2 The terrace has quite an accumulation!
3 All of the burlap is holding up quite well with so much snowfall.
4 The bird feeders are busy all day long with many hungry customers. Most of the birds on the ground are dark-eyed Juncos, plump little sparrows that feed on the forest floors of the western mountains and Canada, then flock the rest of North America during winter.
5 These dwarf Korean lilac are safe and sound from the heavy snow.
6 This pair of old apple trees are favorite perches for crows.
7 The crows sit here all day long keeping a watch on things.
8 There is still some fruit hanging from the Gravenstein apple espalier.
9 This Corylus, corkscrew shrub easily catches the snow in its twisted crooks.
10 This garden on the side of the house is planted with all white blooming plants. It's very white now!
11 More icicles
12 The evergreens looked magical all iced with glistening snow.
13 The Sargent crab apples still have small fruit that certain birds love to eat.
14 The little basket house nestled in the grove of bald cypress
15 An old apple tree with propped up limbs - a good thing with the weight of the snow!
16 Another old apple tree next to the corn crib with propped up limbs
17 This weeping beech has wonderful form in winter.
18 Walking through the passage between two rows of antique white cedar paddock fencing that I found in Canada
19 The fencing casts wonderful shadows.

21 Looking towards the tall white pines
22 A considerable amount of snow has amassed on the boxwood allee
23 Continuing down the boxwood allee
24 Looking at my house over the boxwood allee
25 The nicely pruned linden allee
26 The four other Friesians were enjoying their time outdoors.
27 Ramon decided he wanted to roll in the snow.
28 Maybe he had an itchy back?
29 That felt so good it made him smile.
30 The chickens were enjoying a sunny day.
31 As the wind picked up, more and more snow cascaded from the evergreen boughs.
32 A winter wonderland around the tennis court
33 More wonderful shadows
34 Paddock fencing with tall white pines
35 More beautiful evergreens
36 The pinetum iced with snow
37 The resident screech owl in this nesting box was being elusive.
38 A stately sycamore tree, the symbol of the farm - The sycamore is one of the largest hardwood trees, usually growing 60 to 100 feet tall. They are also one of the oldest trees on the planet.
39 Bare larch trees and iced pines on the edge of the woods
40 The woods looked especially great in the snow.
41 The old stone walls look so interesting covered with snow.
42 Old apple trees and glowing weeping willows
43 This is one of the hay fields.
44 This is the field of Christmas trees planted in April of 2009.
45 More sycamore trees at the far end of the hayfield
