Snow

This ragged old cherry tree on our eastern boundary doesn't look like much.

The snow has the exact texture of shaving cream. Frozen shaving cream. Round puffs of it stick to everything, but it is so cold that it is as solid as a meringue cookie. Only much less tasty.

However birds love it.
There was even a Rough-legged Hawk in it a couple weeks ago


It was so cold and windy this morning that the birds didn't even come in when I fed them. I don't think I will be going walking today....

Horse Pasture pond. Not so very fluid these days

You have not mentioned you house heat for a while. Are you staying warmer this year. Peggy always looks like she is very comfortable warm or cold. It is nice to have new life in a house even when they wear you completely out. There are those hugs and kisses that just make it all worth while.

Linda, I keep telling myself that. LOL

Cathy, yes, sooner rather than later I hope

Ellie, sometimes we are warm, sometimes not so much. The boss tries.....
