A short, wet thaw

One-day warmup

The pond mostly thawed out with the inch of rain and temperatures in the 40s that we had yesterday. The goldfish did some leisurely circuits, but were pretty shy about my looming over the pond to take their picture. There were still a couple of inches of snow on the ground, so I can’t go looking for snowdrops.  I did find ample evidence in the backyard that There Are Squirrels and that they are eating well.

And now we head back into the freezer until the end of the week.   I should probably start thinking about buying seeds for the spring, but the whole green and growing thing seems so implausible right now.  Perhaps in March….
