I looked out at 4:30 this morning and the ground was covered. Part of the porch. It's 7:50 in these photos. So the ground is still warm enough to melt the snow. In this shot , you can see lavender and the lilies.
This is the porch with leaves from the trees. I can sweep it every hour at this time of year. We have a nice fire going in the fireplace. Feels very good. May have to turn the furnace on with it being this cold. I have truly enjoying not having the AC or heat turned on. Hope all of you are warm and have a great day. xo
