Only -16C early this morning, rising to -6.... practically balmy! Right from the sunrise, the sky has been clear, and it is now a beautiful, full sun day.
We got about 4 to 5 inches of fluffy, poofy snow last night, glittering in the light as it fell in big flakes. This morning, all the tree limbs are accented with snow. The birds, coming and going from the feeder to the apple tree, cause little puffs of snow to drift down every time they alight on a limb.
My snowshoes sank right down through this ethereal white stuff when I went for a walk around, absorbing the beauty of the day. Pristinely white, sparkly expanses stretch out in all directions.
I've got a pot of greens growing under lights, from which we have harvested leaves several times for sandwiches.
A bud is rising from the one amaryllis bulb I brought in. The days are getting longer and brighter.......
