What a Difference a Week Makes

We had some overnight lows below freezing recently and they helped turn the leaves on the walnuts a bright yellow. This photo was taken last Monday.

These were taken yesterday afternoon...note the leaves are now just on the bottom of the trees.

Inside the orchard, the leaves are all on the ground. The smell of them when I walk now, takes me back to my childhood.

One of the benefits of walking to get the mail is waving to the passing traffic.

I love living here!

School is canceled today here in Indiana as well. We're sledding down the hill out back for sure!

I had to bribe one of my kids to walk to the end of the driveway to get our mail today. Nobody wanted to go into the frigid weather! :) Your pictures warmed me!

Wow! That's a bunch of walnut trees.
It's cold here. We've already had the first snow of the season. On Christmas night. Can you believe that South Carolina has already had snow???!!! I can't!
