The Hush of Snow

The pond is a sheet of snow today. The hush of a snowy day is so calming. With no wind, the soft, gentle flakes pile up everywhere. Vines become white ribbons chasing phantom shapes through the air. Dried flower stalks turn into cotton puffs.

Daffodils droop their yellow heads in the snow, hoping for sunny days.

The dogs run all day. Fluffy snow on a not too cold day is their idea of a perfect playground. Tonight they are fast asleep, dreaming of more snow.

The chickens aren’t that fond of the snow. The ducks don’t mind. As long as their pool doesn’t freeze, and it won’t with the heater at the bottom of their pool, they paddle all day.
