Meeko and I set out for a walk just as the snowplow was going by. What a racket to spoil the winter solitude. However, we visited with a couple down the street and then headed out along the trail that runs beside the creek. It was lovely, but hard walking because nobody had cut a trail yet.
Meeko loves the snow and had a great time rolling in it and putting his nose into every deep snowdrift he could find. He is, after all, a northern breed and would prefer winter to summer. When we got back, I put him on his lead so he could stay out and I fetched the camera from the house to take some photos. Isn't he adorable? Of course, I'm prejudiced.
Here is my car with snow on the roof. It's going to have to be cleared off, but that won't take too long. I also need to back it into the driveway so I can be sure to get out if we get more snow.
Above is the park across the street. Below is what it looks like in summer.
Below is what my garden looks like this morning. The blooms on my blanket flowers have finally died. They bloomed so long into the fall and were so pretty, but they also look lovely blanketed in today's snow.
As I was coming back to the house with the camera, I tried to get another shot of Meeko. He wouldn't cooperate because he was too busy digging in the snow and having fun.
As I was writing this and uploading the photos, the sky has become overcast and gray. I would rather the rain didn't come along to make a slushy mess of all this beautiful snow, but that is what the weatherman has predicted. We will see and I will post another update tomorrow. Have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday. Blessings, ~Mary~
