And then the winter sun appears.
We still have snow in parts of the yard, especially on the south side where it is shielded from old Sol by the Cedar trees.
The snow is still several inches deep, in places. Normally, you'd expect it to be gone inside a week but it has been two and a half.
Our yard is like a microcosm of the state. Depending on where you are, there are trees or it is wide open spaces.
I don’t know that I have ever seen a dog, even a Samoyed, love snow the way Pearl does.
These shadows, even at midmorning this time of year, keep the temperature down on the south side.
Truly a butt ugly tree behind her. But the bluebirds like it.
Pearl's ruff is nothing to sneeze at, either, although she has lost SO much of her coat in the past week.
Look at Evelyn go!
She has always liked sticks.
Those happy faces make it impossible for the winter blahs to take root.
I found a place to set the birdcam that I think works better.
The woodpeckers have found some of the suet I’ve set out (most of it is not where the birdcam can see it).
Husband is out of town but should be home, tonight – just a fast trip to Colorado to look at helicopter parts or some such nonsense. He was delighted at how easy it was to go through the Oklahoma City airport. It took him about as long to get from home to the Denver airport as it did to get from the Denver airport to the motel.
Penny, Evelyn and Pearl
