We did not get above freezing for several days. Even today, with all melted, the air is very crisp and I am staying indoors. Here are a few more photos of the lovely icy artwork that Mother Nature is so famous for.
If you look closely, there is still a lot of color out there.
The birds were feeding each and every day and I should buy stock in birdseed.
My cut-leaf maple that hangs on each year.
The last of the rose hanging in there!
Hellebores blooming in snow and ice.
Crepe myrtle seeds.
Above I had fun with layering to bring out the female cardinal. I am always amazed at how they weather the weather!
