|Many bunnies hopping up the driveway to the honey locust tree|
Winter is obviously not the best time of year for anyone but snowmobilers and skiers.
And ice fishermen.
|Up and down snow banks higher than my head|
Even rabbits must go to great lengths, or perhaps I should say climb to great heights, to get at the stuff of life...such as bark.
I had to use auto-contrast to make these tracks in the snow show up, but you can...kinda...see that they are climbing tall snowbanks and plowing through deep snow to get to the bark they want to eat.
I would imagine that under the snow a lot of fruit trees and brambles are being girdled as they and the mice tunnel for bark. We lost a good sized apple tree to mice not too many years ago. I hope they leave the Ida Red up by the garden alone. It has a cage....but mice are pretty small.
|This soft, fluffy stuff along the driveway is over my waist.|
