Christmas decorating and the full force of Winter came alive this past week! A mid-week snowfall and the Christmas season collided for a beautiful scene at the farm. What a way to wrap up the last month of the year in our first year at the farm.
We thought it would be the perfect time to take the camera out and share a few photos while the snow fell and the Christmas decorations go up. We hope you enjoy!
CHRISTMAS DECORATING AND WINTER AT THE FARM
The falling snow begins to coat the homemade wreath on the side of the house. Mary used an old wire form to create the wreath from a few strands garland and ornaments we had from our old house.
Our first Christmas Tree in the house! The higher ceilings allowed for a taller tree – and now a ladder to decorate!
The Old World Garden sign post overlooks the farm below with a fresh coat of snow. In the future, we hope to make a few more wreaths to hang from each of the posts that line the driveway.
The barn doors and bench are covered in snow, lightly covering the JOY sign created from pallets.
Ornamental grasses covered in snow make for a beautiful winter scene. We keep our grasses up through the late fall and early winter to provide a bit of protection for the birds and small animals that stick around.
The view from our front door to the road. There is nothing like a fresh coat of snow to make it feel like Christmas!
Although it may be snowing outside – the chickens are nice and cozy in their coop! We probably need to add a few Christmas decorations to the coop to let them know Christmas is here!
With a bit of snow on her head, jazzy nudges her head into the door of the coop to “check” on the chickens. See more photos below…

The view looking back. So far the house seems to be holding up well to Winter’s fury.The pergola is covered in a thick coating of snow. In the background, the garden waits patiently for Spring.
The McMahon Pepper basket covered in a coat of snow. The dark red peppers give a Christmas feel to the barn patio area.
