Frosty photos

Things are pretty quiet here on the East coast of Iowa. Blog fodder has been in short supply and I find myself devoid of inspiration and motivation has been a rough winter. I am so very much looking forward to spring. I have been seeing small indications around the farm that the change of seasons is not far off...really. Not. Far. Off.

Since I can't do anything to banish winter just yet, I guess I should make the best of it. I took a few photos last week after we had heavy fog that resulted in a beautiful coating of Hoar frost on virtually everything. I thought that I might share some of the photos with you.

Even eyelashes couldn't escape the frost.

Some of the ewes are looking a bit large, I know. Lambs will be here in about a month and a half! I will post more about the girls later.

Beautiful photos, all. For someone who sees little snow and even less hoar frost, downright magical. Thanks for sharing!

i needed a crosswinds fix!
BEAUTIFUL photos as always!!

i called home the day of that fog and told my husband to get out and take some pictures
it was breathtaking!
course, he never did
and it was gone when i got home
and they wouldn't have been as nice as yours

Absolutely gorgeous photos Corrine! I especially love the close up of ewe's face. Thanks for sharing.

I'm right there with you, Sweetie!
Hopefully, the longer days will bring with them lots of good things. Soon you'll have little lambs and be busy with your farmers' markets and barely have time to think!

Of course, during this 'slow time' you're more than welcome to come visit the Bluff Country. Maybe I could send you home with a few new CHICKENS ...


Love ya!

Wonderful photos, Corrine. You folks have had such a trying winter. I hope you will continue to find some signs that perhaps the worst is over.
