winter wonder blankets the trees
feathery snow blowing in the breeze
crunch crunch I go
merrily through the snow
a feast for the eyes
magic toner for the thighs
despite arctic temperatures
we’re game adventurers
this deer has come to eat
a delicious bamboo treat
This deer has been around the backyard and neighborhood a lot recently; feeding and resting. I think the bamboo is a great source of food and shelter to hide while it nurses its wounded rear leg.
Meanwhile, I’m loving the snow if not the extreme cold. We had about 9″ of snow last Thursday and Friday which is more than I can remember in probably 10 years. Due to the cold, it has stayed on the ground longer too, giving me a chance to walk, photograph, and enjoy the rare treat. Here are a few of my favorite captures from the neighborhood.
May your heart and feet be happy!
