Today we had heavy rain all day, letting our imaginations run wild as to how much snow we might have had. Meanwhile our front porch bench waits for the next round of white stuff (whenever that might be).
One of the things I love about the Christmas season is all of the little stands that pop up on our back roads selling trees and what not. I have passed this little stand since Thanksgiving, and with the rain clouds finally breaking up, I decided to get out a take some shots. The is at the intersection of Barndt and Deitz Mill Roads in Salford, PA.
We woke up this morning to our first snowfall, and it' snot even winter yet! Yes, this evergreen tree has turned to red, and it really give a net look with the snowy covering. This was taken on Badman Road, in Salford, PA.
A cow grazes in a foggy pasture along Fretz Road as the sun rises. This is one of my more favorite places to photograph. In years past I used to also hunt the woods just to the right in archery season.
For Kim's birthday last week, we got her what we thought was a a ornamental pepper plant for the fall season. We found out later it is actually a tabasco pepper plant, and they are edible, if you dare!
I was wondering all day what to take a photo of for April Fool's Day. At 7:45pm, I got my answer. My wife called; Bobby (our 87 year old neighbor) drove his tractor all through our front yard trying to get out of the mud! Oh well, things happen. No harm, no foul.
We spotted a small herd of whitetail deer crossing Schultz Road today on the way home. They seemed a little spooked, as they did not know what to make of the Canadian Geese that were honking at them below the hill.
I decided to drive home a different way today from work. As I cut through the new development off of Allentown Road, My I spotted an old tree stand still standing in the midst of all of the construction. It's a reminder of a once prime spot to hunt deer just down the road from our house.
Today was very strange. The temperature got into the 50's, with thunderstorms in the afternoon. Around 4:00, the clouds started to break. With all of the snow still on the ground, a fog started to form along the creeks.
Our black lab, Onyx, just loves the snow. It was hard even getting her to stop to let me take a shot of her. If I wasn't holding something in my left hand, looking like I was going to throw it, she'd still be running!
