Open House: How Do You Use Your Yard in Winter?

Over the Winter months, it's tempting to stay inside and hibernate, but that's not the only way to pass the chilly months! Over the holidays, my brother took it upon himself to clear the pond at his farm for broomball games. Not only did this provide some great post-Christmas-feast exercise, but it made me appreciate the possibilities of his home's outdoor space, even when the temperatures were below freezing.

How do you take advantage of your home's yard and property in the Winter? Do you ever flood a flat area for ice skating? Do you groom a cross country ski loop? Perhaps you're lucky enough to have an outdoor hot tub off your deck? Maybe you create a Winter bird feeding station for visiting nuthatches and chickadees? Tell me all about it by commenting below!

We avoid it at all costs and so does our dog. He won't even leave the patio to do his business without MAJOR encouragement. (It's rough but we're working on it). We do, however, make it an obligation to get in our snow gear at least once a season and play in the snow with our dog...who looks at us like we're crazy and why can't we go back inside? :)

I walk on it? It doesn't snow here; therefore, it's green and covered in dead leaves.

I use my yard much the same way that bears do this time of year...I avoid it by hibernating!
