Time Out For Play.....
It's been Snowing a Lot in my Neck o' the Woods, Dear Readers, and it doesn't look as though it is going to stop any time soon! In fact, today was Groundhog Day, the Day on which a Groundhog comes out of his burrow and forecasts the remaining length of Winter. "Punxatawney Phil" claims there will be six More weeks of the cold stuff....and Frankly, I believe him! Because it was snowing hard this morning, with enough snow on the roads that I stayed home from work, and it snowed all day. We got about 12 inches of the stuff, on top of the four we got last Thursday, on top of the six we got last Tuesday.... and you get the picture! And it has been so cold that none of it is melting either.
So there was Nothing to do but Play at home today!
All that snow has really been piling up!
The Conservatory is half buried in the white stuff...
And the Folly too!
Oh look! It seems as though the Groundhogs
are not the only ones up and about today!
Anna Maria and Samuel Whiskers have come out to see the snow...
Anna Maria thinks it would be fun to build a Snow Rat....
Samuel Whiskers gets started right away!
Anna Maria wishes she had a better bonnet for hers.
It seems as though Samuel Whiskers has finished another one too!
I wonder what he's thinking....?
But it was so cold outside, Dear Readers, that it wasn't long before
Anna Maria and Samuel Whiskers went back inside
to the warm kitchen of the Tree house.
And speaking of inside....
Maybe we should have a look inside the Conservatory...
To check on the seeds we planted....
Not so long ago!
It seems nobody has shoveled the path.....
But please do come in!
Oh look! Something has sprouted!
Goodness.... that was fast!
Just look how Vigorous they are!
They will need re-potting in no time!
But for now we will keep their cover on.....
It is a bit chilly in here.....
And it is forecast to get Very cold tonight!
Such a good thing we checked!
Well.... look who is here....?
Where do you think you are going...?
Surely, Not inside! That would be the death of you!
"Did you see where Red went... ?" asks Mistress Blue.
"No idea..." replies Master Green.
Even Will decided to come out to see how much snow had fallen...
He wasn't prepared for quite so much snow!
And he wasn't really looking forward to all that shoveling....
Well, Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed
coming here and playing in the Snow Today!
I was going to show you more,
but it seems that Blogger is tired...
And it didn't even have to Shovel any Snow!
