Guessing game - past their prime

Who (aside from Jarom or Rachel) can tell me what these are?

Update: Lori is super close with her guess in the comment section.

Does anyone want to elaborate on:
1) What these are?
2) What is their purpose?
3) Why do we have a big pile of them?

When taking pictures of cattle...

Keep in mind that:

1) They are very interested in why you are laying on the ground
2) They move very fast when their interest is engaged
3) If you are not fast enough to leave the pen, you may end up with some cow slobber in your hair

Snow

It snowed yesterday.

A maple samara (or "helicopter" depending on what side of the technical jargon line you follow) pinned to the skylight window under a light blanket of snow.

It didn't stick around for long, just enough to give everything a good dusting and remind me to put another log on the fire.

We've been blessed by mild weather and a few rainstorms this fall, but not too many crisp days to prepare us for winter.


I'm ready now. More snow please.
