This 2011-12 Winter has been unusally
mild for the New England region,
compared to the past several winters
which have been bitterly cold
and where it seemed to snow
A few days ago, ol' man Winter and
his favourite companion, Snow,
came for a long over due visit.
The Juncos, Cardinals, Sparrows,
Wrens, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers
and the like all hopped to it,
they were in a feeding frenzy
for they knew there was snow
and lots more of it on the way.
Much of yesterday was spent by keeping the trenches clear
which was fueled by a number of cups filled
with steaming hot chocolate.
This morning we were greeted with
bright silvery Sunshine
and a fresh blanket of deep snow.
A deep blanket which will be
greatly appreciated by all
the sleeping beauties of the Spring
nestled deep in the ground,
Lily of the Valley,
The fresh snow also gave me a chance
to play with the new studio camera as well!
