"My! it was fine, coming through the snow as the red sun 
was rising and showing against the black tree-trunks! As you 
went along in the stillness, every now and then masses 
of snow slid off the branches suddenly with a flop! 
making you jump and run for cover. Snow-castles and 
snow-caverns had sprung up out of nowhere in the night
--and snow bridges, terraces, ramparts--I could have stayed 
and played with them for hours. Here and there great 
branches had been torn away by the sheer weight of 
the snow, and robins perched and hopped on them in 
their perky conceited way, just as if they had done it 

from The Wind in the Willows
Kenneth Grahame

Friday the temperature went up and the snow has been melting.
"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'   He chortled in his joy."
Though some might miss it.

Did someone say Release the Kraken(s) 

"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand."

From The Stolen Child
W.B. Yeats

Release the krakens! HA Ha! Very funny! But I will come away to the woods and the wild. We have woodcocks in our yard, along with some very handsome fox sparrows!

Hi kathie

I noticed the woodcocks were mentioned on your blog, I am jealous I have never seen one.
