We had some snow
About a month ago we had some snow - I got photos and then life took over and I didn't get them posted, but I wanted you to see the snow. It melted in a few days and we are back to our regular green and rain - which is fine with me, I much prefer green and rain. But the snow was pretty. After a few days the temperatures got so cold (down to 9 degrees one night) that everything was frozen and covered in ice. Only about three nights of that and then the thawing and rain began.
Plus I have been learning some new things on Gimp - a photoshop type program that you can download for free online. It takes a little learning time, but so does photoshop and today I was practicing making round photos - that look the longest to learn, but I'm happy with how they turned out.
This is our front yard - looking across the street to the woods. You can't even see the street. That handle sticking up is the vintage cultivator that sits in our front yard.
This is looking toward the back yard - oh and I learned how to use the clone tool ( well I knew how to use that, our son-in-law Jason taught me that a long time ago) to take things out of the photo that I don't want there - like the neighbor's garbage can - which you can no longer see on the left side of the photo. The bright yellow sign is my "loon crossing" sign in the back yard, just in case any loons need to cross.
Another view of the woods - I like the "paper curl" on this one. That program is such fun, and I'm happy that the snow is gone too.
How's your wintery weather these days?
