We had lots and lots of snow (and it is snowing right now for over two hours now as well) and our house and garden look like a Winter Wonderland.

We have four new additions to our little farmhouse family. Four (Indian) Runner Ducks, which is a half breed of the domestic mallard. We have one male and three gals and hopefully they will settle in nicely with the snow and all. They come from a small allotment which will be demolished in March. :(

So now we are having a zoo ... we will be getting two Beijin/Peking Ducks (the typical Donald ducks) in the New Year as well.

Gorgeous! Especially that first picture under the cut. Of course, I think a large part of what makes them gorgeous is that I'm safe and warm inside, and the snow itself is far, far away. *g*

LOL :) Well even when you are in the snow it is kind of breathtaking. The area where I live usually doesn't get too much snow, we have a too temperate climate, and snow usually thaws off after a day or two .. but this year .. it's wow. And for the first time in our own house and garden which makes it even better.
It's wonderful to just step outside and have a snowball fight with the dogs and His Hubbiness™ without having to think about cars on the street or annoying neighbours who salt the streets and we have to carry the dogs because their paws hurt.
