Our biggest snow event of this winter arrived today — days after the calendar informed us that we had officially entered spring. The weather service provided ample warning so we are well stocked and have no need to venture out on the as-yet-unplowed roads. So I’m baking apple pies, cleaning house, watching basketball and taking photographs. One could call this a perfect day. The first two pictures below show a blue jay and a cardinal, each with a snow mustache. The third shows a line of six birds waiting their turn at the feeder. The other pictures show the snow.
