We ventured out into the yard as the golden yellow sun was waning on Saturday afternoon. I love the cool blue shadows and warm orange lights created by the setting sun. The snow is deep, you can see it is up to the first rail in the split rail fence. There are a variety of animal tracks across the snow. I used some pseudo-snowshoes to keep from sinking in to my knees, leaving behind tennis racket sized tracks. Here's a view of the garden, the rounded mounds and the pole for the electric fence are all that hint at the beds below. I read other gardeners' blogs who live further south and are beginning spring planting. We've still got a long way to go.
The remains of my brussels sprouts that I didn't pulled before the snow came.
Warm temperatures the day before brought compacted snow and ice down off the roof. My husband got this shot of the upside-down icicle. It reminds me of a stalagmite.
