red at night, sailor's delight, red in the morning, sailor's take warning
I am shipping boxes today to Houston and California. You would think that I might use a BIG box and bubblewrap myself inside and go to a warmer place, along with my pots.
On the other hand, my friends in these warm places may not realize how pretty January can be in the north. I am glad the camera was in my pocket when Penny and I walked to the park this morning. Holy cats, can you believe this sunrise? If you can believe it, the sun was rising over Mt Pleasant. Yep, that's its name. The last pic shows my own back yard and the frozen river beyond filled with a thousand ducks and geese. I know, I couldn't see them in this pic either. There is only one little patch of open water left on the river, all the rest is frozen, so the ducks and geese are concentrated right behind my house.
There were also a lot of deer in our yard last night. We have two young and wonderful little apple trees. Each summer the deer eat all the apples, because the trees are still small. This winter the deer are pruning the BRANCHES of the trees. Which is actually, to my non-green thumb mind, possibly beneficial.
