Snack time!

Tiny brownie bites and clementine.  Yum!

Deep snow!

We got more snow today.  Not as much as the forecasts originally implied (bummer), but enough to make it difficult for me and the dogs to play in the yard, restock the bird feeders, and put some of the tomato cages around fruit trees that i thought were most at risk now that the deer are showing up.  Pictures are in no particular order...I'm too tired and sweaty after coming in to organize them.

Improving airflow

I think Tucker is trying to figure out how to make himself more streamlined.

Tucker and the amaryllis

We've got an amaryllis just starting to open up - as much as I love everything covered in tons of snow outside, it's nice to have some color and fresh growth inside.  Meanwhile, Tucker is soaking up some sun while overseeing his domain.




Snow collie

Just some pics of Doogie playing out in the snow.  


There's not much more fun than running at full tilt when you're a Border Collie.  Even better?  Doing it in the fresh snow!  Zoooom!


Doogie and Daisy were spending a lot of time digging around under the shrubs - there are most likely voles or mice down there.


Here comes Doogie!


I don't think he's going to slow down!


Thankfully, he took a sharp turn to the side right after I took this next picture....


Annnnd back up on the deck for safety, wanting back in the house because he heard a gunshot off in the distance.

Garden bench

Here's the garden bench, about buried in snow, taken this past Saturday.  The compacted snow and ice is getting pretty deep back there at this point!


 This other picture is a downy woodpecker that wanted me to move away from the bird feeder...

Fun eats!

We decided to do a double fondue extravaganza night to go along with the Oscars.  Chicken broth with other goodies, with chicken, shrimp and veggies cooked in it, followed by chocolate fondue and lots of good dippers!

Little red squirrel

Yeah, you're cute, but go away.  You're eating the bird seed and getting the dogs wound up!
