First snow

We had our first (little) snowfall this morning!
Makes the landscape look so nice. I was looking forward to my morning visit with the animals and fully intended to take my time and enjoy the fresh snow.
So, after coffee, out the door I went.
Thought I would take my camera and capture the wonderful feeling that fresh snow can bring.
As I step into the alpaca pasture, they all come running to greet me. They know it's feeding time and want to make sure I head for the barn.
 But then something unexpected happenned!
See the look of concern on their face? Or is it a confused look?

Even the dogs were unsure of what happened.
As I stepped from the walkway onto the grass area, I ended up flat on my back so quickly I did not even have time to react. Camera still in hand, while I was down there I figured I'd show you the reason for the splat!
Rubber boots!
No traction!
I guess this is good enough reason to put those away and take out the winter boots!

No more greens to find in the pastures, the hay bar is a popular gathering spot.

In order to keep a bit of summer greenery, a small herb pot with parsley and rosemary is now in the house. Hopefully we get enough sun to keep it going for a while longer and we can enjoy them in our cooking.

Getting ready for a craft show...happening this weekend.
Pics and more on this tomorrow.
