Things Were Happening in the Woods and on the Lake!
As late fall 2011 progressed, as usual in the U.P.
we'd have a mixture of autumn
and back to Autumn
before the real winter set in.
Here are some pictures of our first snowstorm
and of some of the things we saw
during that time of year.
The doves, wondering what happened to fall?:
I told this deer to go into hiding, and SOON. It was almost Nov. 15th
and in this neck of the woods, that means he'd be a target soon.
It got cold fast....and ice was close behind:
My poor garden frog....
My lake as it started freezing over...this is at the far west of our lake:
One of our first storms...the branches laden with snow:
Also at the far west end of our lake:
More winter photos are coming...
so stay tuned.
And if they aren't a reason to enjoy your present SPRING...and be grateful for our warmth this time
of year, I don't know what IS.
Winter is gorgeous, but I do enjoy the re-birth of all our gardens and the warmth that Spring brings.
