I enjoy seeing the decorations and the lighted tree every day. First thing in the morning I let Morgan out, turn on the tree and then get the wood stove filled and burning.
Every year I say that I'd like to keep the tree up all year, but end up taking it down when the days warm up and there are lots of sunny days.
The bright christmas tree helps keep my spirits up against the dark, gloomy, cold wet depressing weather. I like cold weather, but I don't do well at all without a lot of sunlight.
I took this photo yesterday trying to get a good picture of the myrtle that is growing very nicely through snow, ice and lots of rain.
I sure wish the myrtle would take over the forest floor and cover up all the leaves. Love how the myrtle grows through the leaves and hides them.
I took these cobweb pics yesterday after I cleaned the chicken pen. Cobwebs are beautiful, but these poor webs are rather a mess. I should save these pics to post on Halloween.
I leave the webs up in hopes of them catching flys, mosquitos, etc., but in the winter the only thing I see crawling around are spiders.
Put more wood ash in the chicken coop for the hens to walk through when they go in and out of the coop. I like to think the wood ash helps keep the hens feet dry and healthy.
Morgan is happy. I washed her bedding. The wet weather makes for muddy paws and the bedding doesn't take long to get smelly. Morgan is getting older and appreciates a clean, warm bed. Me too!
