Linda's Barn in Snow

Yep, with temps in the 90s F it's a challenge to paint snow! LOL But it does cool one -- if only mentally! Hope you like this version too, Linda!

I missed my date with the weeds yesterday, and instead wrestled for several hours with the front garden. I deadheaded and pruned wheelbarrels of vegetation and wound up with two 5-gallon buckets of purple and white coneflower seedheads and a two-gallon bucket of blanket flower and miscellaneous seedheads! My plan is to use these over the newly cleared areas of the property and entry beds and extend the front beds a bit. It'll be a surprise to see what takes.

A bit more chores to do today and minor dashing around ... It's been wonderful to have some leisure time ...!

Stay well!

Gee, decisions, decisions. I love fall and I love snow (from inside the house!) BUT I love both fall and snow paintings so its difficult to say which one I like better. I think it's a definite tie!! Lovely and refreshing now that the warmer weather has returned.

Whew, deadheading in that heat -- you are one brave and hardy soul!

Big hugs,
Lorraine

Although it's been much too hot this summer for my liking, I am not ready for snow, but really like how you've rendered this one.

By the way, Lin, I've bestowed the Liebster Award on your blog. C'mon over and read all about it.

Wonderful snow scene and yes it is mind over matter. I feel cooler. The temps on LI are delightful. But we are headed back to warmer weather. Just love the snow.

All the best to you,
Joan
