Very pleasant encounter

This little guy paid a visit here this afternoon, which was very surprising because they are highly nocturnal and therefore seldom seen. In fact, this is the only one that I have ever seen. What a thrill to see him right up close!

Settling into winter

After sub-zero temperatures all of Saturday, now the snow has started to come in. After removing about 6 inches of it today, I look forward to seeing even more tomorrow and tomorrow night. What a beautiful winter it is turning out to be! Here are a few pictures from a hike today. If nothing else, I have a very happy dog: he loves the snow!

Over the past week we finally received some significant snowfall and today I finally got around to taking a short hike to enjoy some of it.

There are no flowers blooming here this time of year, but the Pixie Cup Lichen seem to be quite happy in their winter home.
