We had our first snow of the year on the 6th. . . .
Snow covered houses. . . .
But the Robins didn't seem to mind. . . .
Bird tracks on the bench near the pond. . . .
After removing all the decorations we set our Christmas tree out in the yard to continue to enjoy its loveliness. . . .
Because of the extremely cold temperatures we still had snow on the ground on the 9th. Gabriel was itching to get out and run despite the cold. . . .
Then today we woke up to ice coating the trees. . . .
It decorated everything. . . .
Even the herb planter shimmered while the bare Basil stems sported globes of glistening diamonds. . . .
The rose arbor showed off its dangling earrings. . . .
But the ice conspired to change our plans for the day when our car slid off the driveway. . . .
