Mid Winter

Winter is half over, and schools in Maine just had their first snow day on Friday. More snow is predicted in the next couple days. Although we haven't had a lot of snow, the deer are hungry. For the first time ever they have eaten the leaves on the rhododendron~

There is not a leaf left on any of the three bushes. Though they have never bloomed, the plants provided a welcome splash of green at the edge of the woods.

Friday's snow was the type that clings to every surface. The white backdrop was perfect for the lights on the railing~

We've never had outside holiday lights before. I didn't expect to enjoy the evening's nightlight as much as I do. The string of color may stay until spring~
