Ahhhhhh Wisconsin.... LET~IT~S*N*O*W!*!*!


Although we have a L*O*N*G Cold  WINTER, Here in Wisconsin 
(about 5-months)...  I still LoVe the Season's First Snow Fall
& All through the HoLiDays...
~* A Magical Wonderland *~

 Out & About Early This Morning, tiny
Snow Flakes started to create a dusting effect 
in nooks and crannies on our property...
Boots On... Ski Poles in hand down a slippery hill,
I headed toward my Frog-Husband's stacked wood pile
in search of some ~*Birch-Logs*~ to fill my
 SHaBBy Old-Red ViNtaGe Ice Cream Bucket!*!*!



 Now Brown Hydrangeas,
later in the day appeared like
 SNOW-BALLS on STICKS...



Vibrant Fall Cabbage Plants still going strong,
with a dusting of S*N*O*W...
I'm most certain the lavender plant will be totally
wilted by morning...



 Our beautiful Cedar Trees 
Looked Stunning!!!
~*Like Icing On-A-Cake*~



Winter In-The-Garden
Dusted with S*N*O*W...



A PeRfeCt Afternoon to
