    This big guy showed up this week without his antlers.  Shedding has begun?  BTW, the snow fence in the foreground is to keep the herd from trampling the snow on the septic drain field.   :)

    Usually early spring is a great time to hike and look for shed antlers. They make nice decorations for the bar, mantel, etc. I have a unique antler on my bar that I found a couple of years ago while hiking. Squirrels and other small animals like to knaw on antlers so you need to be quick about finding them.

    I have been hearing the cardinals chirping their springtime songs. Love seeing cardinals in the snow!

    67 today here in the sunny south, supposed to be mid-70's by the weekend. Time to think about the garden.

    What's snow?

    That would be water..a.k.a. rain in a solid flake like form…it falls from the sky in colder climates….resembles dandruff.
    Ice, the truly solid form of water that everyone would be familiar with….that is currently the wall between me and my favorite fishin hole >:(

    Like so many other people here in the Mid-Atlantic, spring can't come soon enough.

    It is nice to see the robins and cardinals out and about!
