When will it end? Actually, it’s supposed to warm up this weekend. I took these photos before this week’s snowy days.
This is where the water runs into the pond – when it’s not frozen.
Our driveway after Gary plowed it. That’s ice leftover from the snowpocalypse.
The lime tree is enjoying the inside weather enough to bloom, even while it snows outside.
The night sounds are so beautiful this time of year. Every night, the frogs serenade us from just before dark to around 3 am. Last night I decided to see if I could capture their song. I took the little Cannon camera down to the dam and took a video of the moon. The moon was the only thing that would show up and I was really just down there for the audio. There’s nothing to see here, but the sound gives a hint of what it’s like on spring and summer nights out on our screened porch.
Check out the trail that Gary made. It runs from the north side of the house to about halfway to the north property line. And, yes, there’s a gooseberry patch right next to the trail.
Today I took a couple of short videos of all the water falling around the property. We’ve had a lot of rain. This one is the little creek on the west side of the property. It’s about 100 yards from the house.
I’ll upload the other videos later.
To Build a Swing
All the ingredients
To turn your life into a nightmare-
Don’t mix them!
You have all the genius
To build a swing in your backyard
Like a hell of a lot more fun.
Let’s start laughing, drawing blueprints,
Gathering our talented friends.
I will help you
With my divine lyre and drum.
Will sing a thousand words
You can take into your hands,
Like golden saws,
Strong silk rope.
You carry all the ingredients
To turn our existence into joy,
Mix them, mix
No, I didn’t build a swing, but here are some of the ingredients of joy that I found around the property this week.
