This weekend is supposed to be bitter cold here. So I decided, since today wasn't too bad that I would take a walk around my yard and look for signs of winter and interesting things. This is what I came up with.
This is from my holly bush. It was one of a few things that had life yet.
This little bird was all puffed up trying to stay warm.
My frog statue looked like leap frog in the snow. Allie was checking something out!
I found this growing out of an old tree stump.
My husband likes to put interesting pieces of wood in the yard. This is one covered in snow.
He also likes cool looking rocks. When my flowers are blooming these things look great mixed around them as decorations.
This froggy thing is my rain catcher. As you can see it is just ice now.
Somewhere we found an old stone birdbath top but it was missing a bottom, so we used a tree stump.
This was the most interesting thing I found. We have wood and sticks behind our shed so that we can use them in our campfires in the summer. I guess this is some kind of mushroom growing on it.
Gather has helped me even find the beauty in things in the dead of winter. I hope you enjoyed them.
