Our Little House in the Big Woods
This post is for our children who are far, far away. May you enjoy the walk around your childhood home.
This post is for you southerners who dream of snowflakes but rarely see them.
This post is for you northerners anticipating the bright beauty of new snowfalls.
Please enjoy the scenes outside our little Upper Peninsula house in the Big Woods.
If you get cold, how about a cup of hot chocolate to get your winter started off on the right foot? (I mean boot.)
Our little (uncovered) grill in the Big Woods in the First 5″ snow.
Our little shed (and propane tank) between two snowy spruce trees
Barry’s snowy 1949 Studebaker pickup truck beside snowy garage.
If you look closely in the Stude’s mirror you’ll perhaps see a vision in her grandma’s 1969 snowmobile suit taking pictures of snow!
Snow behind garage.
The way snow hangs heavy.
Looking behind the garage at the old water tank we built to help water the garden one summer long, long, ago.
Stude again. I like it because it’s red and shines brightly in winter time.
Tractor–which plows driveway (not needed in today’s storm) shines brightly red and yellow, too.
Autumn leaves frosted in snowflakes.
Mother Nature decorates her Christmas trees in snow.
Oh look, the tractor again!
Hark! See ye in the woods? ANOTHER old Studebaker! This time it’s a car. (Wife doesn’t recall the exact year.)
Let’s admire the wood pile that husband and wife split and stacked through rain, snow, heat waves and two knee replacement surgeries.
Oh c’mon, don’t be shy, get closer and really admire that wood pile!
We guess it’s Thyme for winter…(or is this Oregano? Hard to tell beneath the snow.)
