The Big Melt

Yesterday's ice with today's sun made for quite a spectacle in our backyard. I really don't have much to say about the photos other than I was in complete awe of the scenes nature provided. The photos were taken at two separate times this morning; the first was a bit before 9:00 while everything was still good and frosty, and the second was around 11:00, which is when the sun finally breaks above the tops of the trees. During the second round everything was melting, which made for a strange scene. I say strange because the sky was clear and the sun was bright, but under the canopy of the trees it was pouring. I tell ya, I just don't get people who stay cooped up when the most amazing things are going on right outside their front door.

Wow! We never get any ice like that around here. The leafless trees are especially pretty with all the icicles!

Thanks Katie. I love winter. It's a shame we can't grow anything while it's happening.

Vegmonkey, are you at vegmonkey.co.uk? If so, I just added you to my reader.

We're glad you're enjoying our blog! We are lucky to have all the space that we do. Since we rent it's not really ours--so I guess we're doubly lucky that the landlord lets us do what we want.
