A Second Look--March 6, 2013

Yesterday there was nothing. Today it appeared, in the middle of the yard in a patch of grass--my first crocus. (A squirrel must have planted it there.) I'm glad that I found it before it gets covered with the foot of snow that is predicted for tomorrow.

Also, I found four more bones this week, and I'm not sure what to think about that except there must be a lot of critter activity carrying these bones from place to place. Actually, I need to not think about these bones so much. Tonight at dinner, my half-eaten grill chesse sandwich looked like a squirrel jaw bone to me. But you know, I find it all so darn interesting.

Here's what I saw this week during my Second Look.

Lone crocus in the middle of the grass.

This sky does not look like snow is coming soon.
