The snow didn't start until after 2 am on December 26th, but we got the promised snow! At least 6". We were ready for it. Prince was double blanketed, the pony was wearing Prince's old foal blanket which is still weatherproof after all this time, hay was scattered in the pasture and haynets hung in the shelter. Next morning the haynets were empty.
As I type Prissy is behind me on the couch, soaking up the heat from the heating pad and purring. Her purring sounds like crackling paper.
The sun is out today, glorifying the snow. Actually I was glad the snow held off for a day. I declined the visiting rounds Christmas afternoon and spent the time planting out American beautyberry and prairie rose seedlings and the Alabama snowwreath that Phillip sent. The perfect gardener's Christmas as far as I'm concerned. :) I was working at the top of the hill, where the farm meets the rest of the world so to speak. The neighbors across from our mailbox were having a big Christmas bash and car after car kept pulling up. They may have wondered what I was doing digging and planting at the end of December. lol
We had our holiday dinner Christmas night. I had made over 400 gingersnaps and many loaves of pumpkin bread for DH's office, and naturally kept some. ;)
Most of the cookies and loaves are frozen, with the idea that they can be parcelled out until May. We'll see.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
