Oh Snow!

Last week we had the first bit of snow in Obuse. It wasn’t much, but I love the snow and totally geeked out about it. This means that winter is definitely here and its time to get the tops and sides put on the greenhouses. The next day we started to do so. Soon all will be covered and I my hands won’t freeze off every time I go to water, but I’m sure they will as soon as we start shoveling the piles and piles of snow Obuse sometimes gets. Enjoy!

A little bit of snow falling in the morning.

A little bit of snow on the roof of the Big House and Tea Room

A cascading white pine that has been beaten down by years of snow!

Like the deer in the picture above, Matt knows what this first snow means...snow season and a lot of shoveling!

I say..."Let it snow"

I will be heading back to my home to North Carolina on the 21st of December for about a week for the holidays, can’t wait to see all my family! Thank you everyone for visiting!

    Hi Tyler,
    Great photos.
    We’ve had snow on the ground here in northern Vermont for a while now. The sooner and more early snow the better to blanket our field grown trees. Otherwise, they suffer.

      Thanks Wayne! I’m sure you get some very cold temps around your area. I plan on having some field grown trees myself, but in North Carolina we dont get the snow like you do up north. Only one or two heavy ones a year.

    Enjoy your holiday and tx for sharing!
    Is it also freezing over there? And how low do temperatures go?
    Do they leave all those trees outside or goes all inside?
    Cheers
    David

      Thank you David! We have had a few nights here where the temp gets right below freezing and frost on the ground many mornings. I believe the lows are normally around the low 20′, thats cool! We are in the process of moving all the trees into the greenhouses and they will be covered. It can be dangerous to leave such valuable trees and pots in such cold temps because they can easily get damaged from snow and/or pots can break when frozen. its a lot of moving but its worth it to spend a few afternoons lifting heavy trees.
