This is winter.
There are two layers of ice on this bucket. The top one was probably from last night before Billie Jane finished eating. Then she poked a hole in the ice - being the Colorado horse that she is! - and drank a bunch of water. Then the temperature proceeded to drop enough to freeze an inch of ice on the rest of her water. Brrrr. Looks kind of neat with a double layer of ice and space in between.
And, this is winter.
Okay. Maybe I should make this photo teeny tiny and zoom in on
But, hey - it was cold out there! And all kinds of things froze - like this spider web.
The ice was just starting to melt when I went next door to feed the critters. The spider web with the glistening icy drops was what caught my attention at the time, but I have to admit that it's pretty funny that Raven is standing in her "food dish". Silly girl!
Okay. I admit it. I did find some green stuff growing around here. It must be pretty hardy because it has been below freezing for several days in a row now. Does that mean I have to quit whining about how cold it is?
How about a sunset? Maybe that will take my mind off of the cold.
These clouds were absolutely crazy bright and glowing yellow, orange and red. Ummm. Never mind the big blurry UFO in the sky above the clouds. Some hay got trapped inside my lens, and, well... no, the lens doesn't come apart. Yeah, I know. Hay inside my camera... pathetic. It does seem to have shifted around, though. Maybe the UFO flew away.
Perhaps a bigger sunset will make up for the "hay episode".
Huh. There's a big UFO in this one, too. I really don't know what caused the huge shadow across the clouds - but this time it wasn't hay in my camera! The clouds looked like this with or without the camera.
Why don't we just skip the rest of this wintry cold and walk down memory lane where we can think about last summer...
Nothing quite like an early morning guinea serenade to take my mind back to warmer days!
Hope winter is being nice to you out in your neck of the woods.
Happy Funtry Friday!
