Inside Outside February

Hi everyone! Here we are, February is almost over. It's so cold my town has built an outdoor skating pond on the plaza in front of City Hall, where the farmers market is held in the summer. Like a miniature Rockefeller Center skating rink!

The beach is inaccessible now....

The bay water has begun to freeze over..

This is a saltwater inlet/ pond on the mainland. I love the many kinds of ducks here. In the summer there are swans.

My hyacinths.

These are my January bulbs, doing beautifully, in a slow kind of way.

Tonight may be the coldest night of the year.

Next July we'll think of this night's chill fondly, with wistful memories of crisp cold perfect air, flannel sheets, hot chocolate and fresh from the oven oatmeal cookies.

sunset is later now, 5.45 or so.
Pink snow!
