Peevish Pen

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

Spring Snow I

Although spring officially arrived last Wednesday, winter made an appearance yesterday. The day began with what weather forecasters call a "wintry mix."

Birds gathered in the pin oak and waited for me to refill the feeder.

The daffodils bent under the weight of the icy mix.

Soon snow covered the garden bench.

George the cat headed back to the shelter of the garage.

When I filled the feeders. . . 

. . . the birds came.

Snow—or something icy—fell off and on all day.

And cats, who couldn't wait to go out, soon wanted back inside.

Stay tuned for more snow pictures.
