And... It's Back to White!

 

Just ONE more day to promote my blog, LET ME KNOW YOU'VE DONE SO, with a link or other proof, and you have a chance to win a book!

Meanwhile... I awoke to this. Looks so peaceful. Too bad I had to go out and drive.

This setting was absolutely gorgeous. But there was no where I could safely get off the road to take better pictures. I had to stop far away and put up with intervening wires and signs.

The coating on things began as slush and then gradually changed to snow. That's the reason it stuck so thick and so long. The last three pictures were taken at 1 pm, on my way home from work. Usually snow like that has long melted or fallen by that time of day.

Even the near vertical cattails have white shadows.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring!

Orange Day

 

Just TWO days left to promote my blog in pretty much any way, let me know about it (a link I can see or a screen shot of what you did), and you get a chance to win one of my books for every share! Really low entries so far... you have a good chance to win. How about it?

Today, everything looked orange to me. It rained and rained. The snow is gone. I was out doing cases all day, and snapped some pictures. I don't like orange much, but I used to do a bunch of pictures to "please" Maggie when she was with us, so here are some orange shots in memory of Maggie Millicent.

The asparagus fields are feathery and golden orange.

The Pere Marquette River Flats are a monoculture of cattails that try really hard to completely obscure the river. But I found it for you.

Almost home now. I topped a rise and the weeping willow, which always looks orange in winter, was sheltering the pale orange corn stalks.

Feeling Human

 
The quality in today is that I have felt pretty good. I sat up all day, in fact. That is not the same as saying I did very much! But I'll take it.

In the past few days I've seen a lot of this.

And eaten a couple of these.

At the Bird Feeder

 
The best things to happen today happened at the bird feeder. Now we are having a real storm. The squirrel seems to have hunkered down, and the birdies sure took advantage of it.

The little junco seems to be asking the cardinal if he can share.

The answer is, YES.

A downy woodpecker showed up too. And the blue jay is usually nearby. That's his tail hanging down.

First Snow- Continued

 

I'm really not complaining. We got much less than some places. Still, a foot of snow in mid November is a bit of a shock! The roads were pretty bad. But I made it out and back home safely. We may be done now for a few days
