The magic of Snowy Mornings

Winter mornings are amazing! The air is so clean, with an electric smell of snow flavored with just a touch of fox scent. 

Mouse Runs Across the Snow 

Deer Mouse Footprints In The Shed
Last night's powder does not hold tracks well, but it is clear where a deer mouse left the shelter of the wood pile to venture into the shed. 

Chipmunk Hole

A chipmunk popped up out of the snow and made a dash for a brush pile. 


And Mr. Fox came through the woods, dug into the snow where I left some seeds for the birds under a hemlock, 

then he trotted over to the wood pile looking for the mouse before heading across the lawn to the apple tree to see if there might be a tasty mouse nibbling on fallen apples under the snow. 

And to top it off, a downy woodpecker was drumming, a sure sign of spring!
