I have been tremendously busy this week - feeling rather unable to keep up with everything at the moment. Work is extremely busy, which it is sometimes, and I appreciate that, but it doesn't leave much time for photography and fun!
Our prompts today from Eden Hills are: Starts with G, Week's Favourite, and Pink.
Starts with G
Goodness gracious, we've had a lot of snow! Great, gleaming, glistening, gargantuan piles of it! Mostly accompanied by gloomy, glowering skies. I'm getting very tired of it. So is poor Marc, who is doing the snow shoveling because my arm is very painful these days due to ulnar nerve problems. Here are some images of our ghastly weather. We think we might need a larger snowblower for next year, if we can fit it into the budget. Or we might give up and sleep from January through March!
The route to the sheep and goat area was not easily passable when I opened the door earlier this week. We've since had another couple of feet of snow, so you can just imagine how it looks now. Carrying a hay bale through this from the garage to the fenced area is not an easy job. The snow was at my hips in some places, and I am 5'10", so that is a very difficult path to navigate.
Here, just for fun, is a "find the GOAT" picture!
The snow has already covered the bottom of the bird feeder and the new tray feeder that Marc made me is almost covered. Can you catch a glimpse of a little face peeking out in this picture? Maybe the next picture will give you a hint.
I managed to capture this image of the squirrel taking seeds from the bird feeder. I love the way he's hanging on, but looking in my direction. You can see snowflakes on his face but he still looks like he's smiling. Now you can go back to the last picture and see his little nose peeking up just at the bottom of the tube feeder, if you missed him the first time.
Pink is one of my favourite colours in the flower garden. We are a long way from gardening season, so a pink cat tongue will have to fit the need for today! Mitten the cat and Pippin the rabbit share this water bowl on the window sill, but they don't drink at the same time. I tried, unsuccessfully, to get a picture of rabbit tongue. Maybe another time!
p.s. If you didn't find the goat earlier, here's a hint.
If you're still really stuck on the goat, let's zoom in a bit...yep....that's Lucky Nickel peeking through the snowy trees.
