The blizzard passed south of us, so we got only a little wind and snow.

After a snow fall it is interesting to take a walk around the garden and see what kind of wildlife activities are taking place during the long winter nights. No elk, moose or wild swine, but plenty of hare and deer tracks.

Others like to browse my hedge plantings that are hap-hazardly protected.

The mulberry bush gets extra wind protection.

Yesterday I went and got a load of used sheep fencing. It was for free ‘just come and take it away’.

I can get 500 meters more if I take it down. Maybe come summer. I may need more if the wild swine get any closer.
