Wish winter could quickly fly
As fast as a Chickadees wing....
The big drifts reach so high
It may take ages to see spring.
But it will be here by and by
And the flowers shall grow....
Instead of deep white snow!
© Poetry by me AJP

A Fox Squirrel had dug a tunnel under the mound of snow on the feeder this morning..... It was like waking up to a surreal nightmare to see when I got up out of bed to shoot this picture through the window.....We had about a foot of snow last night to pile up over the accumulation that we had before with winds blowing 50 miles an hour. My husband went out to shovel a path for our little Tippi dog so that she could do her business without getting buried in the deep snow..and is also getting a path blown out to the feeder so that I can knock down the mound and feed the birds. The mound of snow on the feeder symbolically reminds me of a monstrous creature of some kind devouring sunflower seeds as the black capped Chickadee is fleeing away wishing it could get out of winters icy grip ...

    A beautiful flight capture, perfect timing! It went down to -33 F here last night. I'm not sure which is worse a foot of snow or frigid temps but I'd prefer neither. We're all ready to see this winter come to an end I'm sure.Especially our bird friends..

    Thank you Heather....-33 F is not fun either what you are having now,,Usually in February we get a break between storms but this winter has been different...Right now it is 18 degrees but the wind blowing makes it feel colder. the low tonight is supposed to drop down to -11 F.

    Marvelous shot! Joyful moment!

    We are taking a short break from snow, here. Forecast calls for naught before Thursday night. Much more talk, suddenly, about overland and river flooding, what with the below-zero temperatures and record snowfall for the month. ::sigh:: Hoping all is well where you are.

    Thank you for the comments....Lizl I am sure that we will see some flooding also when all the
    snow begins to melt ....I honestly don't remember a February quite like this before for days
    on end without end,,,,but eventually all over flowing of snowing will stop and we should have blessings later of a good crop of flowers and gardens growing from ground moisture.
