Noll's Weather Update

Like many of our furfriends, this past week brought us a mixed bag of weather:  A quarter inch of ice, followed by wind, rain, refreezing & snow.

Wednesday night, the air was filled with cracking and popping.  By morning, many a mighty maple branch had surrendered to the weight of winter.  Even my little purple plum had lost a limb.

Yesterday, a red-winged blackbird visited our feeders; always an encouraging sign of Spring.  I am hopeful the weather soon will turn to mild but, as I watch the icicles melt, Impatience sits along side me. Impatience is not a welcomed companion!


I wish I might move things along....
I have a little purple tree to console!

But just like Impatience,
the sun moves at it's own pace.
