The snow makes filigree lines, lacing its way around the grass. Spring tried to arrive but was defeated with biting cold and crystalline powder. Still, I managed to capture Spring’s brief charge with the chipmunk featured below.
We went to Cox Arboretum, and the animals were busy. Chipmunks scuttled around the boulders, a squirrel was busy relocating nuts it had stored, and robins flitted upon the ground. For a brief moment in time we paused and relaxed.
Now Winter has returned. I don’t know how the delicate leaves of the rose bushes will fare. I’m pretty sure the squirrel is still busy. The robins hide under the trees, fluffing up their feathers for a bit of warmth. I’m here with my jacket on, contemplating whether to start the fireplace.
