Chickadees On Ice
When I ventured outdoors this morning, I couldn’t help but admire the chickadees as they flitted in and out of the icy branches.
Here in Maine, the are my most faithful visitors.
The freezing rain started up again as I admired the view from my porch. Here, my lilacs are shrouded in ice. I’m hoping that they won’t suffer too much damage.
It’s amazing how something so beautiful can also be so damaging. The branches of this sagging birch look like nature’s lace.
The freezing rain came down all day after these pics were taken. You can year the crack and crash of trees coming down all around us. It’s definitely not a safe day for a walk in the woods!
