Hungry Possum

Here's a guy you don't normally see out and about in the afternoon.
He was munching on spilled safflower seeds from the feeder yesterday.

A Colorful Diversion


Recently we escaped this never ending winter to soak up some sun in Phoenix.  The Phoenix Botanical Garden is one of my favorite places to visit there.  This year there they were hosting a Chihuly exhibit.

Not Funny

I just took these photographs. 
It is snowing an inch an hour and is expected to continue most of the day.
The low temperature tonight is predicted to be 1 degree Fahrenheit. 

This winter is now officially not funny anymore.

My memory of winters growing up in the area were that they were generally colder and snowier than they have been the last 20 years since moving back.
Even so, the crocus by our front porch would bloom without fail by this date - my parent's wedding anniversary.

Even my Snow Iris have refused to show themselves this year.
