Yes, I said I was sick of winter (see below) but then we got all this snow in our front courtyard--what happened to global warming? It was quite beautiful and I tried to sketch and watercolor it through my front doorwall.

The bird eat up the seed voraciously during all this snow, and there are deer tracks all over my yard--especially under the feeder and in the small woods behind us.

Tired of Winter already

Now that the Christmas Celebrations, and the New Year has begun, it always make me think of the days now starting to get longer...and maybe we could hope for an "early spring." Am I too optimistic? So I went thru my sketchbook and found another great memory--a visit in South Carolina for a wedding. And while we were there, we visited a nature park which had an interesting gazebo in their Iris Garden. Somewhat Asian-looking I thought. Nice.
