Winter is Here in the Ozarks

First it was the frost flowers. They showed up last week during our first really cold spell.

Then yesterday as we were on our way home from grocery shopping the first sleet began. Soon after the plinking sounds of tiny ice balls on the windshield gave way to the silent brush of snowflakes.

Nature Farming


Wild Ozark is 160 acres of beautiful wild Ozark mountains. I call what I do "nature farming" because the land produces, all by itself, the shagbark hickory trees, ferns, moss, ground-fall botanicals, and the perfect habitats for growing and stewarding American ginseng. I'm co-creating with Nature - all of the things I use to make the Fairy Gardens and Forest Folk, the bark we harvest for Burnt Kettle's shagbark hickory syrup, are produced by nature without my input. This land is my muse for inspiration when it comes to my writing, drawing, and photography. It's truly a Nature Farm.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods

I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making crafty things and newsletters, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.

  1. My husband always says the frost fairies leave the frost flowers. I love that. I also love “the silent brush of snowflakes.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh I like that about the frost fairies! We have trash fairies here and I leave pennies in the trash for them so they don’t steal other shiny baubles (like keys) ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks for dropping by the new virtual homestead ๐Ÿ™‚
