Thought I would share a few images of the snow that blankets my world right now.
The first is a dock located at Happy Holler Conservation Area Lake in Savannah, MO
This is a large snag of trees located at HHCA lake. In the spring and summer this is an excellent place to kayak and fish for bass.
A snowy cornfield
A snow covered Hedgeball. In the summer these oddities are lime green in color. The freezing temperatures soon turn them a chocolate brown color. Many people place these odd balls in their basements as natural insect control. Not sure if it works, but would be great if it does. Certainly better than pesticides.
While driving along the gravel roads in the country we spotted numerous nests in the dormant branches of the trees. So well hidden in the foliage of summer, they become exposed with the absence of leaves.
This darling little red fox squirrel was making the snow fly as he dug around for nuts and corn in this snow covered field. He had excavated about a 5 foot round circle out of the snow and was consumed with looking for food.
I am a self-proclaimed hater of cold, but even I have to admit getting out on such a blustery, cold, sunshine filled day was fun, and we were blessed to see many wonderful things. Even getting stuck in the snow in a ditch didn't dampen my mood.
