A quick transition into winter this year, with mild temperatures and lots of snow!
The month of lambs, seedlings, fence posts, and snow showers.
Finally, all the autumn work on the ski trails pays off. Gorgeous ski around the farm today then back through the forest to the lookout over the Skeena.
As the snowline continues its inevitable descent down the mountains, the animals are still enjoying some green grass.
‘Nature never makes haste; her systems revolve at an even pace. The buds swell imperceptibly, without hurry or confusion, as though the short spring days were an eternity’ – Thoreau
Lovely winter’s day on the farm, which fittingly rounds off another productive, plentiful year. Peace and happiness for the seasons to come.
The animals don’t venture too far from their hay racks at this time of year, except for when Mia antagonizes the lambs or calf into a bit of frolicking.
The ski trails are well-tamped down through the fields and wetlands, but there is still not enough snow back along the old woods road yet.
December so far is a month of snow, skiing, snowshoes to the river, and wonderful company. Photos by Amy.
