Old Man Winter and Mother Nature must be having a contest ~ I think Mother Nature has her knickers knotted up because Old Man Winter is sure getting his way!!
He's back again ... look how much snow is in the yard again ~ hard to believe it was green two days ago ... and it's still coming down.
This photo was taken around 1:00 this afternoon ...
The GrandLoves, Brooke and Bailey got off the bus here today. Brooke shoveled a path to the garage and over to the wood shed for me :)
These following photos were taken around 5:00 p.m. Look at all the snow ... and it's still coming down. Notice how heavy it is hanging again on the trees.
I was going to take down the suet feeder because I don't want the bears on the deck... but I think the birds (especially the woodpeckers) wouldn't be too happy about that. Besides that, the bear have probably taken a peek out of their dens and decided to crawl back in for awhile. Although there have been a few sightings already of them being out and about.
I was standing over by the garage with my camera and saw this woodpecker in the tree. Then I noticed another bird behind it. That's the one that got my curiosity peaked ~ I think it was a little Saw Whet Owl.
The deer browsed around the yard for a bit then slipped off into the shadows of the woods as quietly as they appeared. Not once lifting their tails in fright.
I suppose this would qualify as a photo overload day ~ SO ... I'll quit for now.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
