It’s snowing here for only the second time this year. Now everyone north of the Mason-Dixon line, don’t be laughing about how excited people in the south get over such a little dab of snow!
When I went out to do chores this morning, the first thing I saw was Toby cavorting around with snow dusting his back.
A couple of the peahens were out and had even more snow on their backs.
After I finished taking care of the critters, I walked down into the woods. There was snow dusting all the leaves on the ground, and some sticking to the trees. I took a picture of the slue on one side on our property.
I didn’t see any owls or deer today. They probably had the good sense to stay tucked inside some sort of shelter.
My quince bush has frozen blossoms. Right now the iced blossoms look rather pretty, but I’m sure when it warms up they’ll all turn brown and die.
Back up near the house, the birds were busy at the feeders and birdbath. We always have several cardinals and woodpeckers dining at our buffet.
They take turns at the feeders, and sit on the fence posts patiently waiting their turn.
You can see what blustery weather we’re having by the way the feathers of this lady Cardinal are all ruffled up. She even tucked one of her feet up in her feathers to stay warm.
We won’t get any accumulation worth mentioning from this morning’s snowfall, but it was still fun to see some snow for a change!
