Winter at the WD

Freezing nights, cool days and mostly sunny. The sun is deceptive though: there is often a thin little breeze from the north that makes it just unpleasant enough to be playing outside.

The horses (here Bueno and Buggs, Cody is out in the arena already) have good winter coats, though it is difficult to see in this photo.

The garden is sleeping, but still producing carrots, green onions, lettuce, kale, cabbage. See the remainder of snow that blew in sideways on New Year's day.

The chicks have grown into little hens that no longer peep but cluck. It will be another month before they start laying eggs. The always curious Cindy in the middle foreground, airhead Marilyn furthest from the camera.

It is a splendid time to be perusing seed catalogs by the fire.

so glad to see that things are propering and normal at the WD. Hope you and Dan have a wonderful year and that things will go well for you both.

Have enjoyed our "conversations" a lot this year. Oh, finally figured out what to do with your photo ... now i just need to do it and then I will share it!

Happy New Year!

What fecundity. Love the hens and the amount of crops you are still producing. Not much edible growing round here just now!
