This is our back deck and I noticed the tracks from the rail to the door where I had thrown out quite a few peanuts in their shells for any birds and squirrels that might be around. The tracks looked bigger than a squirrel but I don't know about these things. Maybe the indentations in the snow makes it seem bigger than it actually is. I don't think I had any large game climbing down from the trees. The tracks appeared to stop for a munch fest on the peanuts first, then disappeared down the steps to the left of the photo.
My old teddy, simply called "Teddy", has been with me since my parents gave him to me when I was a year old, so that makes him almost 59. He has been on this blog before. He looked outside and liked what he saw, though I told him he was a little under-dressed to go play out in the snow. Teddy has always gone au naturel and has never liked clothing. I dressed him up as a girl for years and that's probably why. I keep telling him that little girls have a tendency to do that and I think he has forgiven me but.....
This is the new addition to the teddy bear family, Bertie the Beefeater. He came to live with us just before Christmas. It's the first time he's actually seen snow.
On Saturday it snowed all day but on Sunday morning it stopped and we were greeted with beautiful blue skies with not a cloud anywhere. Just lots of snow but thankfully not as much as we had a few weeks ago.
This is out back again. The trees cast lots of lovely shadows and the snow just sparkled. Pity you can't see that here. It was so beautiful!
This is my friend across the street. I'm not sure what he was so interested in. Usually he barks a hello when he sees me taking his photo. Maybe he is just showing me his best side.
This is Gregg's van and I was struck with how the snow had melted into rivulets on the windows but had frozen again on the way down. Now that's cold!
