Two years and counting!


It finally feels like winter here. It has been long-awaited.  I was beginning to wonder if winter would ever come. We have had a pause between snow storm the last 2 days. Coco, our 3-year-old dog, has been beside herself to see sunshine. She makes me laugh watching her outside. She absolutely loves sliding on the snow and ice. Clear skies bring even colder temperatures. The high today was -13 C. You can see the dark snow filled clouds in the distance in the picture above. Hubby took this photo next to the cattle barn which over looks the valley below


He turned slightly to his left from the barn and shot a photo of our snow-covered road.


Our Poly-tunnel miraculously stayed in place despite the barrage of storms since Christmas. You can see the piles of snow the tractor has moved to clear the drive way. Today marks the two-year anniversary of our journey on my Blog (sliceofheaveninsweden.wordpress.com). I am amazed on how much I have improved on my computer skills by learning how to make a Blog. I had the pleasure of meeting all of you. My blog has had 5,616 views and 2,292 visitors in just 2 years. I have all of you to thank for that.

I have learned  so much about gardening, the environment and more. You can see that our garden in the picture below sleeps covered in a perfect white blanket of snow. We actually enjoying the sabbatical  from gardening. We discuss our failures and triumphs in the garden and  dream up our plans for next years garden. Believe or not there still are carrots hidden under the snow that we dig up as needed.
