Snowy Highlights, Feb. 2017

Most of our snow will be gone by the end of the week. There will be more, but I feel the need to post these wonderful winter snow scenes while they’re still fresh in my memory!

  1. Hi Nick, Loved the groundhog coming out of hibernation! Your snow shots are beautiful. We had about 2 inches of snow this year! Quite a contrast with your snow.

    • We usually have snow when the groundhogs show themselves. I’d love to know what goes through the mind of a vegetarian when their first sight after months in a burrow is a snow-covered field!?

  2. Wonderful winter scenes I don’t get to experience these days. My favorite being the groundhog. I’m partial to them critters, having been born on Groundhog’s Day! You caught the essence of how I often feel waking up to yet more winter all around! I can’t imagine the patience it might have taken to catch that peek of him/her looking out on the snow covered landscape. I’d bet that what’s going through his/her mind is: “hasn’t that white stuff gone away yet?” 🙂

  3. Hopefully the mud season means we’re inching toward spring. Can you believe I have daffodils blooming here. They first popped open in mid-February. Seems a tad early. I think I’ve had quite enough hibernating for this year.
