1 Once again, the farm is covered with a new layer of glistening snow.
2 The woodland streams are full - they look so dark against the winter white.
3 This is the carriage road leading into the woodlands, with the well-planted stakes marking the winding path for the plow.
4 Here's a view of one of the lower hayfields coated with untouched snow - it's so beautiful.
5 Another flowing stream meandering through the snow covered woods.
6 These apple trees are located outside the Contemporary House. It's almost hard to believe they were laden with apples just a few months ago.
7 This storm dropped about five or six-inches of snow in the area, and we're expected to get a few more inches this week.
8 Here is a view of my field of Christmas trees. They were all just little saplings when I planted them seven years ago.
9 I planted a total of 640 Christmas trees in this field - White Pine, Frasier Fir, Canaan Fir, Norway Spruce, and Blue Spruce.
10 The snow looks so beautiful on the branches, but when it is heavy and wet, it also weighs them down.
11 Majestic trees stand tall in the woodland - I love how their trunks and sweeping branches look all painted with snow.
12 Here's another gurgling stream barely peaking through the blanket of white.
13 Weeping willows color the edge of this hayfield with a touch of golden bronze.
14 The American beech tree grove - some of the branches are still holding their leaves.
15 Here's a view of snow collected along the top of the antique white spruce fencing I purchased in Canada.
16 I love how the snow looks on the fence. This antique fencing surrounds all the horse paddocks on the farm.
17 Here's a view across the north paddocks with the tall stately pines on the left.
18 Thankfully, the wind was not very strong, so none of the trees suffered any damage - it was a very pretty day for snapshots.
19 A stand of dawn redwoods, Metasequoia, with their straight trunks - impressive trees by any standard, and beautiful in any season.
20 This is an unplowed, untouched carriage road on the way to the tennis court.
21 Another grove of weeping willows leading to the run-in shed adds such a beautiful golden bronze tint to the winter landscape.
22 The lilac allee looks so pretty with the snow covering all the branches. In spring, these shrubs produce flowers at eye-level - all the better to enjoy their sweet, captivating fragrance.
23 The chickens and geese don't seem to mind the snow at all - they were all outside their coops clucking away, but don't worry, their coops are outfitted with warm heat lamps to keep them cozy.
24 Next door to the chicken yard is my vegetable garden - it's done so well in this location.
25 Here is the stone yard camouflaged under a layer of snow. This area is where I store surplus stone, such as slate roofing tiles and Belgium block.
26 The road leading through the Japanese maple grove. All the stakes surround young trees, so they can be spotted easily after their leaves have fallen.
27 As many of you know, I have planted a few different allees at the farm. This is the allee of linden trees. An allee is a walk or passage, especially one between two rows of evenly planted trees.
28 This is the long allee of boxwood tucked away under burlap tee-pees.
29 Here's a view of the stable courtyard, with all the cobblestones covered in snow.
30 This is a weeping cherry tree next to a snow covered cement garden orb. In a couple of months, this weeping cherry will look completely different covered in snow-like blooms.
31 These 50-year old apple trees covered with fresh snow were already here when I moved to the farm. They were recently pruned by our friends at SavATree. http://www.savatree.com
32 Here's a look into the herbaceous peony garden - it's hard to tell where the beds are, since they are covered under a layer of snow. The garden is surrounded by a boxwood hedge, neatly tucked away under more burlap coverings.
33 This is the carriage road in front of the Winter House. It comforts me to see the burlap tee-pees protecting the boxwoods and preventing their delicate branches from breaking in this weather.
34 The wrapped boxwood shrubs look like snow-capped domes.
35 This is my favorite view of the fields looking at the old apples and the stable beyond.
36 Here's the old corn crib, which is original to the property.
37 The granite pergola, which supports clematis and wisteria, also provides a wonderful lookout for perching birds.
38 Snow covered evergreens add beauty to cold gray winter days.
39 Here are four sergeant crab apples - two on each side of this carriage road heading toward the pergola, with the bald cypress trees surrounding my Basket House on the right.
