Snowed a lick last night. Again. First pic is before - 2nd shows how deep it was = 6". But it was my exercise for the morning. And for those of you who like flowers, I got 2 shots of wifey's Christmas cactus. Which only bloom around Christmas and Easter for some reason. It struck me as odd to see a flowering cactus with so much snow on the ground. SW

Oh, that is nostalgic. My Mom had Christmas Cactus for years, always in her kitchen.
Thanks for that pic.

mine too , it is nostalgia at its best , i love those blooms - so colorful and somewhat out of place on that thorny plant , i loved my moms fish hook cactus it had nifty blooms too , but i cannot keep plants alive or i would have one of those , i think its the high humidity in the summer and dry air in the winter - at least thats what i blame for the failures of my thumb - its brown/dead not green as needed ,

it is st pats weekend ill drink a green beer and toast the thought that ive known family that can grow stuff well , i missed out on that ability - the family talent for music , i cant even play the radio well and the only redeeming fact that they all call me when they remodel to help with the construction , i do that well enough but getting too old for a lot of those projects these days ,

Two days ago it was fairly nice. Took the dog out & she had a good time tearing around in the snow.

Birds just outside the family room window enjoying the blowing snow. I dumped out a lot of birdseed yesterday so they and the squills loaded up.

No school in towns all around here - the hospital where older daughter works sent everybody home but emergency room staff... Must not be spring yet! ;) SW

A magnificent looking beast there Hogger. Me and my new one do our exercise in the morning and afternoon, then she crashes out till wifey gets home and the feeding starts.
We'll have more time for adventures soon. I'm finishing some jobs now and closing the shop doors on the first of next month. I plan on taking her to the range next month to see how she does with gun fire. My first Akita was fine with it and would just lay there and watch. She went everywhere we did, camping, hiking, caving and loved it. The 2nd Akita was just the opposite. This one was rescued from an oil field in west Texas, so she's kinda tough. And she HATES squills.
