The snow's been melting away these last few days. You would be surprised by what you can find in the melting snow. I found animal tracks exaggerated by the melting snow. The ducks' tracks bring wonder and joy to me. It's good to see the rabbit tracks, even though rabbits and Pat are sworn enemies. Come to think of it, the boys don't like the rabbits either. Well you can't be a food source for the animals, birds, and ducks and not expect them from showing up.
I always knew that a deer trail went through our back yard. I even have a rather laissez-faire attitude towards some hosta nibbling at the edges of the yard. I mean, after all, we have somewhere over 400 hostas scattered around the yard. But look how close the deer run comes to Big Blue. Big Blue in its present state are those dried out stalks in the lower right forefront of the first picture. Maybe I need snow fencing for more than the veggie garden. Maybe Pat will like day-glo orange.
