The Fluffy Snow on Martin Farm

My usual Saturday morning ritual of enjoying my cups of coffee and the view from my sun room has been enhanced by the beauty of the morning. We have been blessed with 4-6 inches of snow and it is magical. It is pretty, fluffy white snow. It reminded me of Splenda in a bag. :) This is our 2nd snow of the year and so much better than the snow of two weeks ago that was mixed with ice. The sun is shining brightly and the tree branches are glistening. The boys have joined me on the couch to snuggle thus making my morning complete. And as Walker would say every day:
"You know what you haven't had today? A kiss and a hug!" There will come a day soon when the snow will melt and a time in the near future that my little man will not be worried about my daily kiss and hug, but for now, life is good!

Life Peaks Through

A few small mosses peaking through the snow beside the house.  

They look warm and cosy (relatively)  where they are.  Kind of like being in an igloo!  Catch the sun, but miss the wind.  Not a bad deal!  Check out the small insect in the lower right section.
