Bitterly Cold

The snow went south and east of us.

I am watching the birds
through the windows.

They are doing fine in the bitter cold.

I am reading

and relaxing.

It is to warm up this weekend.
I hope to go walking.
I miss my walks.

Dear Sherry,
It is very mild here at the moment. Temperatures are way above the 'norm'. We reached
12F (54C). Whilst it is lovely to have these mild temps, it worries me slightly......

I walked Nella through the woods yesterday. Young woods, not ancient. We found a lake in the middle. I sat on a tree stump.......I suddenly heard what I thought was the drone of bees.
I got up and followed the sound......it took me to an old willow, gnarled and aged she looked so beautiful amongst all the young saplings. There was a large hole where she had lost a limb many years ago. Hundreds and hundreds of honey bees were going in and out.
I stood for ages watching them....Nella was intrigued and stayed still fortunately. I did not want to make them angry.
I walked back home full of emotion.......full of hope.....sightings such as this gives me hope.

Stay warm, stay well and know you are always, but always in my thoughts.......

Hi Sherry,

I found your blog by chance and am really impressed with the bird-pictures. Are they all native to the US? They look very exotic to me (I am from Germany).
Are you aquarius? So am I :-).
I have no own blog for the time being, but I have started to blog for a publisher about the Botanical Garden in Marburg ( http://garten2null.de/2011/02/14/terra-australis-oder-kennst-du-das-land-wo-die-akazien-bluehn/). I have a part time job there and spend my time drawing plants if there are not too many visitors.

Greetings from Germany,
