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.
