The ice covering everything in sight makes for treacherous movement. And it also creates a magical play with light. You might end up on yer arse if you run after a solid freezing rain episode, but, boy oh boy, it’ll be pretty when you look around from down there.
When a gorgeous little bird flew full out into our window and stumbled stunned to the deck, I scrambled out to see if the wee warbler survived the collision. We had a moment of quietude, she and I (or maybe it was a he), where we just looked each other over, eyed one another’s eye, […]
