Mostly Weather ...
The ice was all gone from the sidewalks, there were great swaths of bare grass between the remaining snow piles, and it had been bright and sunny and melty for days!
I took these with the new phone's camera while at the APs, eating their crackers and taking in their mail:
Funny birds made a path going in and out of Beau's kennel through the gate
Juniper trying to escape from the snowbank
Chimnea waiting patiently to be freed from the snow
And birdprints along the lacy edge of the melting snow
Then winter came back on Friday night. This is just outside <-that cat-nose-print-covered window on Saturday morning
