Milky white…

Take heart, spring is just around the corner as we still slip and slide today. With only one more cup of hot cocoa mix, it better be here sooner than later LOL. However, a lot of our native plant seeds need this cold stratification to germinate. So maybe just think of the good this cold does?

This morning’s thin layer of ice froze the pine needles in place! Brrrr!

None of our ponds have gotten much ice!

The frozen ground heaved the mud up further than normal.

A different perspective!

What was the round thing? It was strange fungus was my first thought.

Nah, just a frozen tennis ball. Gracie has dropped them in many places around our place.

Another puddle of water not frozen solid!

Whitlow-wort (Draba cuneifolia) covered in ice.


The stump!

Giant Ragweed!


Pine cone!

The concrete owl still had ice too. Surprisingly a lot of the ice on the roof melted off today though the temperature never got above 27 degrees.

The ice on the post was a strange and beautiful milky white! Back to sunny Monday’s outing tomorrow.
