first snow

we got our first snow of the season (and our first snow at triangle rd).  it started some time in the night and has been snowing off and on all day.  it's coming down pretty well right now (1:36 pm) adding to the 6 inches we woke up to this morning.  i got a few pictures...

this was the scene when we woke:
zane checking things out from the window

view from the house looking toward the road

front gate and bell


agaves that mark our driveway


Heteromeles arbutifolia---aka toyon or christmas berry


snow on pine needles


the mill office


my favorite pine tree


horrid man heaving a snowball at me

sorry mama, i just had to do it

tracks from two animals


kitchen garden trellises


kitchen garden fence


snow-covered snow peas

looking up through kitchen garden trellises
