Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Mid-February Snow

Last night, snow fell. For a while, the world was silvery-white.

The azaleas looked like cotton plants.

A half-moon hung in the sky.

The rising sun turned the silver to gold.

The zebra grass had white plumes.

The crape myrtle glistened.

But a dark cloud hovered over the silver and gold world.

It too will pass.

I'm envious. We did not have snow!

The snow didn't last long. It was gone by early afternoon and the wind blew hard. It'supposed to be cold tonight—it was cold when we fed and watered. John put out another round bale for the horses, and they immediately started eating.

Penny loved the snow! She stretched her fat belly in it and ate what was in front of her!
Beautiful pictures...

I took pictures of that too. Funny, the day before, we were out there with no coats on. Then snow.
