Treebeard and I decided to stretch our legs this afternoon with a stroll down to the pond. Some of the snow that fell on Thursday is still with us and the pond is covered with an icy slush. Below are a few things that caught my eye as we walked.
Bright green fronds of Christmas fern don't seem to mind the snow cover.
"Nerve cells" dot the surface of the pond. The weirdness of water never ceases to amaze me.
Mr. Opossum wanders first one way...
The varied grays and blacks of the pond in late fall and winter have always appealed to me.
A congregation of cypress knees.
A view from a "hill" above the pond.
A lace collar rings a tree standing in shallow water.
A hedgehog fungus hangs on.
The weatherman says we have a slight chance for more snow tonight. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if that didn't happen. I'm a southern girl and too much snow sorta scares me ;-)
