Let It Snow...

Brynwood Needleworks - "Let It Snow" Wreath

One of the first things I did after we arrived back at the farm was change out the fall wreath for a winter one. I had found this rustic snowflake (on sale!) at Joann Fabric in Sarasota and thought it was nearly perfect. It just needed a bit more color.

Then I found these sweet, little plaid birds (also on sale). I took them home and glued them to my wreath. One on top of the "Let It Snow" board, and...

the other on the bottom, looking up. When the glue dried, I packed it up for the trip north. Now that it's hanging, I only need to add a red ribbon to the hook and it will be complete.

I knew it would snow soon, but it's as though my little wreath was just asking for a sprinkling of white stuff. Snow began to fall late Saturday evening and continued through Sunday. The morning glories and crysanthemums are resting now, and soon, the snow will cover them completely.

Our outbuildings look beautiful against the white backdrop. Everything is covered in white. The red on the barns stands in contrast to the snow, as though they, too, rest for the winter.

Everything is quieter...warmer...softer, under this wintery garb. The snow will continue to fall even after we've all headed back to Florida for the rest of the season.

This is the large hickory tree that provided the tasty nuts this fall. It looks smaller without its leafy dress. The maples and lilac bush will join the hickory in its wintry slumber, and keep their promises to bloom again in spring. 

Our time here this season will be short, but for now, we'll enjoy our family and first winter snow at Hickory Hill Farm.

Everything really does look so fresh and ethereal with new fallen snow. Your Florida wreath did it's job. The little plaid birdies are just the right touch. Stay safe and warm dear.
