Winter Was Here
Winter is nearly over here in the valley. With spring right around the corner, I thought I should pull together some winter pictures before the early flowers start blooming.
Donkeys don’t care about weather too much. They have access to their shelter all day, but often prefer to stand out under the oaks no matter if it is raining, snowing, or blazing sunshine. They can see me from the porch and often start braying when they catch sight of me with the camera. Jake especially loves the extra attention.
Here we have some chickens who were hiding from the weather on our porch. It can be a little startling for visitors who come knocking to have half a dozen chickens flight out from under the grill in raucous cackling. Yes, chickens cackle.
I even caught our dog Hannibal playing in the snow. Even though she has short hair, she enjoys zipping around in the dogyard, skidding in the snow. After a while, she’ll come in and sit by the fire to warm up.
