snowy trees

Snow!

Went out this morning to shake down the rhododendrons and the vulnerable trees - lost a few branches the last time it came down this thick, and didn't want a repeat. CCouldn't FIND the cedar sapling, hope it's okay, it's in God's hands.

The birds, as always when the white stuff comes, are at our door chirping pitifully - and we saw a squirrel doing a very entertaining session of snow burrowing out on the deck, much to the cat's utter fascination and our amusement (picture a mole-like trail moving rapidly under the snow, and then a small squirrel head popping out from underneath every so often presumably to figure our where the heck he is going...)

It's cool, and white, and lovely. It's winter.
