The First Real Snow of Winter at Gullringstorp


We have had a pretty unusually warm winter here at Gullringstorp. It has looked very much like fall since October. There has been a lot of rain and wind and even a few snow flurries that disappeared the very next day and sometimes the same day.

There was no snow here at Gullringstorp for Christmas which was a real disappointment. Here we are January 8th and we have had a significant snow fall all day yesterday . The temperature has dropped to -4 c which means this snowfall will stay for a few days. I am happy for that!

Our koi  pond has been covered and protected from the ice and snow of winter for a couple of months. We have popsicle fish under that tarp!

Looks like a Christmas tree, doesn't it?

It's amazing how the snow can actually pile up on such tiny delicate branches

Even our hedges that line the driveways can somehow hold snow on their tiny leafless branches

These tiny delicate berries don't seem to mind the snow nor the cold temperatures

These geese, on the other hand, do seem to mind the cold temperatures and I am sure are heading for warmer temperatures

I hope for more snow! My poor husband who insists on doing all the shoveling, I am sure hope that this is all we get. We will see what Mother Nature and Global Warming have in store for us here at Gullringstorp.

The goats of Gullringstorp are warm and cozy in the stable.
