February in Wisconsin - Farm and Woods

Wisconsin and snow, I wanted to share, I couldn't resist
a few of these pictures with you and my follower's list.

So, on with my coat, hat and mittens 
camera around neck - such a nice day to be missin.

First I should check on the cats, chickens and sheep
They laid me some eggs, now in the bucket to keep

I throw down some hay for Peppy and Jack
don't worry boys, I will be right back.

On for my walk, I pass the flag pole so high
Beautiful old glory waving in the Winter sky.

I pause for a few snaps of the treasures below
I love how they are covered with fresh fallen snow.

Across the street, no neighbors live there
just trees and wildlife is what we share

I walk down to the bridge to check on the creek
down each side, I just have to peek.

Nothing is stirring, not even a track
I guess I should be heading back

There it is, our barn and our home.
Should I keep going, oh where will I roam.

I walk past the gate, now frozen and cold
a piece of equipment now rusty and old

One more picture I would like to show 
a picture of me playing in the snow.

I want to thank all of you who read my blog and leave such nice comments.  I enjoy it so much!  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

What a beautiful post.
I love the rhyms you made as the pictures went on.
Your farm/home setting is lucky you are to live out there in the peace and quiet of the city. You are blessed.
Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit and comment.

Great rhyme and photos. LOVE old equipment. Those wheels would look great in your garden with vines, flowers and cucumbers climbing around them. Is that an old manure spreader in the 2nd last photo? Here in Vermont we use them like raised garden beds after they are retired from the field. Come visit my Vermont flock and herd when you have a chance:

Wow! Jacky, that snow is beautiful! It looks like a winter-wonderland! I fantasize about snow and seeing this made me feel refreshed, since I just came in all sweaty and tired! You're a poet, did you know it? Thanks for sharing your beautiful farm! Blessings from Bama!

We were in Wisconsin; there will be no drought this year with all the snowfall you are getting this winter!

AND LOVE LOVE the hat!

I LOVED the winter photos but was worried how cold you must be. Then I saw how warm you were dressed. Smart girl! Love that barn!
