THE SNOWS OF FEBRUARY
A late winter storm covered the area in snow yesterday. It was very quiet and very white outside as the snow fell... all day long. The only activity outside, other than a snow plow, was at the bird feeders. The lone male cardinal that frequents our feeder was a punctuation of vermillion against the field of white. It was with great excitement we spotted a female cardinal for the first time all winter. Could this be a winter storm romance in the making?
The snow is melting this morning so the dramatic look of yesterday's landscape is loosing it magic. Work goes on in the studio, fewer outdoor chores need attending today, and in the kitchen biscotti is baking. All is well, and spring will soon be here.
