Late February Update

Wow

We are starting another snow storm. We are supposed to get six to twelve inches of wet snow. This is the first wet snow of the year. The birds are working hard to fatten up to survive the storm. They are very active on the feeder. The deer are also out in the daylight, which is slightly unusual. In the past we’ve seen three deer, but today if you count carefully, you will see six deer.

Hungry Deer

The snow has really restricted the deer movement. There is a crust on the snow and when the deer walk, their feet sink to the ground. Also the food choice is very restricted and they are eating anything they can. Our arborvitae trees are beginning to look strange!

Plenty of Snow

I have been trying to get a good picture of this guy for a while. Finally managed, you can get an idea of how pretty he is.

Frodo took me on a walk this morning and we updated Seasons again.

This update was because I got some pretty pictures. I will update after the storm if it amounts to anything.

Love,
