A Frozen Meditation Moment

Frozen Meditation Circle

Frozen Meditation Circle

A smidgeon of snow and then an afternoon of sleet and freezing rain left the meditation circle and surrounding gardens locked in a quiet stillness. This view was taken through the window glass just before dark.

Throughout the day numerous birds visited the feeders—Northern Cardinals, Eastern Bluebirds, Song Sparrows, Carolina Chickadees, Brown-headed Nuthatches, and Tufted Titmice. There was also a Dark-eyed Junco feeding on the frozen ground, the first one I have noticed in a few months. Yesterday there were many American Robins and a pair of Mourning Doves.


The temperature is 26°F on its way to a low of 22°F.  Light freezing rain will continue tonight making the roads treacherous, but tomorrow we will see some sun and 47°F. And by Tuesday? 70°F.

    The meditation circle looks very effective in winter with frost on it. We also have some milder weather on the way, but only a few degrees above freezing, after several days of sub-zero (Celsius!) temperatures.

    Fascinating how a light dusting of snow defines the garden whereas thick layers removes all definition completely. We are forecast a few very cold sub zero C days here too. Keep warm. Christina

      I love the way the light snow has affected the garden and shifted the emphasis. We don’t get much snow here so it is exciting to have this small amount (mostly ice really). You stay warm too! Thanks.

      Pauline, glad your snow finally left you. It’s very wet here too with more rain on the way this week. I know there will be a period in July when we’ll be wishing for some of this precipitation!
