Lion In Winter

IMG_2921March arrived like a lion and continues to gnaw on the frozen carcass of our 10th snow storm here in the Appalancians.  However, Cindy is posting beautiful photos of the humming birds in her hollow in a warmer mountain range to the west.  While we have had a few days into the 60′sF  recently, here is what our birds awoke to: 10 inches of spring snow.  No lambs in sight.

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

      I was going to offer to send the ice store that came the next day your way, but have not been on the computer much since. (I know I’m backed up on your blogs too).

      There is the change in climate. Consider what has happened to most cultures that have tried to settle the southwest for the past few thousand years. Be kind to the land (and the hummingbirds).

  4. Those birds sure like the flavor of your snow. Hang in there, summer will be here soon enough.

  5. Thank goodness you’re feeding them to help them through this crazy winter!
