January 8th, 2016 – Our Backyard

This was our backyard, during the day, on January 8th, 2016.  It snowed that night.  I wonder what it will look like on January 8th, 2017.

Central Illinois’ first snow could come as early as Sunday, December 5th.

The Holiday Season

01052014808-001

The holidays are right around the corner and this is the perfect time, for many of us, to remind our friends, families, and future followers, we also have sales sites, and, that they should stop by and browse what we have available in the way of gifts.  Have a good holiday season!

Frosty Backyard

A couple weeks ago we had a frost that lightly painted the back yard.  As you can see the sun was coming up so it did not last long.

I shot this over last weekend.  It was in a neighbor’s yard and there were electirc wires and signs close so I could not get the entire tree.

The Scent of Pine Needles

Our local Park District set about purchasing Austrian Pines, I think it was probably in the 70’s.  They can grow to about 60 feet and have quite a girth – somewhere in the area of 40 feet.  I love listening to the wind blow through the pines and the sound that emanates.
