How beautiful! Looks like powdered sugar. What is the temp. there, btw?Here in Alabama it has been in the low 80's this past week, but should be getting much colder by the weekend. No frosting for us!
Isn't it amazing when a field of frost is hit by the sun and there's this clear line between shadow and sun?I'm off to a JOB INTERVIEW!
Is that snow?! Amazingly, it still hasn't frozen here close to Lake Ontario. But I'm not tempting fate and have brought all the non-hardy plants inside and turned off the outdoor taps.-Elizabeth
Hey ther FG, how ya been? I hope those poor little sheep aren't to cold
Fortunately Liselotte and her woolly friends have a good coat !!Beautiful photo.
My toes got frost bite looking at that! brrrrr cold! Have a great day!
It looks beautiful there. Crisp and cold! I bet the sheep are glad they have a wool coat!
Makes me miss Fall in the South. Being in SoCal now, our season change is when it gets 50 degrees. Love your farm pictures.
Stunning--I almost forgot how lovely it is where you are. Forget the sheep, I wouldn't mind sleeping there :)
Hi Alisha,When you asked yesterday morning, it was a balmy 27 degrees F. : ) Actually we've been having fabulous fall weather. Quite a few ups and downs (it was in the 80s last week here, too), but very nice during the day for the most part. Our coldest morning so far was 20 degrees F.Hi Kat,I'm always surprised by how fast everything defrosts. I hope you get the job! : )Hi Elizabeth,No, it's not snow, just very heavy frost. The grass crunches when you walk on it. It's pretty neat. And pretty pretty : ).Hi Cara,The sheep LOVE this kind of weather. It's finally cool enough for them, LOL. They sleep outside under the stars. Hi Mijo,Thank you. Yep, as the temperature drops the sheep just keep getting woolier. : )Hi Heather,Little by little I'm digging out my winter gear: heavy gloves, heavier gloves, wool socks, insulated boots, thick jackets, and of course my authentic German military cap with the fold down ear flaps! : ) Hi Socalfoodie,'Crisp' is a perfect word to describe this time of year. And 'cold' of course. : )Hi Robwonton,Welcome to the farm! Thanks for taking the time to write and say hello. I love your profile photo. : )Hi Vjchang,Welcome to the farm to you, too! When the barn is full of fresh bedding hay and all those warm woolly bodies, it really does seem like an inviting place to curl up. (And I get opportunities to do just that when a ewe decides to have her lamb in the middle of the night--and takes a long time doing it.) It's very pleasant, and I am never alone. If I am doing anything involving sheep, Lucky Buddy Bear is right there, ready to work. And of course Patchy Cat usually sleeps on a big bag of wool in the barn so he can keep an eye on everyone. : )
