Soon the Winter

The nights are down into the twenties with the daytime just reaching the low forties. A scosh of snow predicted for Saturday. If any perennials were holding on to their fronds and flowers, our week of frost has sent them into complete dormancy. Only the winter garden remains.
Water trough ice to break, lamp to the coop, blanket over pullet enclosure, hay to the paddock, and extra feed for everybody.

We had our coldest morning so far this year - 34*. Oddly enough, we have one lone yellow Iris that just keeps on blooming! We have seen so many varieties of birds today. Some light snow flurries are predicted for us Sat.

Wishing you all a great weekend.
