We had a mix of snow, sleet and finally rain.
The ice coated everything in site. The driveway was a skating rink. All shades of grey and white.
The next morning the sun came out and we had to go for a drive to see the crystal wonderland that was created.
After the shades of grey we had a beautiful blue sky with crystal covered trees. Many limbs were lost and a few trees will be firewood for next winter.
Sun so bright that it hurts your eyes.
Ice on everything. Looks beautiful but can be very dangerous.
Take one last look at the farm in winter. In Maine we have 5 seasons. Like the rest of the world we have Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, however, the season that comes between Winter and Spring is known as MUD SEASON!
We are having warmer temps this week. Up into the 50's. Now instead of everything being covered in ice, we have MUD. Brown, slimy, oozy mud. Mud, mud, mud.
Staying busy getting ready for spring. Spring means lambs, possibly kids, chicks, poults and fences. The cycle begins again. Winter was quiet, peaceful and a time of rest. Now we are edging up the the starting line, ready to take off and work like crazy.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
