1st of the Month Scavenger Hunt

1 Mar

I can’t believe it’s the first of March.  Already.  I went for a walk up north, but it’s too early to see much progress.  We’ve still got cold temperatures, so there’s no way things are going to get done up here yet.

All the snow might look soft, but don’t believe it.

That’s just the light dusting of snow from overnight.  Underneath, there’s a hard layer of icy stuff.

Here’s the top of the windmill because I always love my windmill.

I had to take a selfie for the scavenger hunt.  I hate selfies (might be a dreaded task even), but I did like the way the sun’s colors showed up on the hood. There’s also a lot of cat fur on there too.

Finally, a dreaded task.  I dread the cleanup.  Not really.  I dread the work it is to try and get the cleanup done.  It’s hard to get people to do things, even when they say it’s their job and you try to hire them.

It’s very frustrating because I don’t have the knowledge, skills, or tools to do it myself.  Hopefully, by next month, I’ll have some real progress to show.

Sharing with Scavenger Hunt Sunday where the topics are:  soft, early, top, selfie, and a dreaded task.  I’m also sharing with Shadow Shot Sunday.

It’s Starting to Look Like Fall

Has Fall Left Already

10 Nov

It seems like summer lasted for a long time, we had a brief fall, and when we got up Wednesday morning, I was greeted by a very winter scene.

Of course the snow was nearly gone by the time I arrived home from work, but even today I found snow on the north side of the trees.

There are still remnants of snow on the north facing hill also.  By the way, this is the fence that must be replaced next year.  You can see it if you really try.

We had quite a few inches of snow.  Between the rain and snow, it turned out to be over an inch of precipitation.  That’s good.  We need the moisture, but I’m not sure I’m really ready for winter.

Not only have we had our first snow, but our beautiful colorful leaves have also disappeared.  Any of the leaves I found on the trees today were just brown and dead.

Most of the trees are bare against the skyline.

The crops have been harvested from the fields, and they too are brown and dead beneath tonight’s mourning moon.

I think Iowa fields are still beautiful even when they’re empty.

Even the goats are looking like it’s winter.  The kids are really getting fuzzy and round.

I am not ready for winter.  I still have a lot of work to do outside before winter gets here for real.
