Awaking today to brilliant blue sky and sun, the likes of which we have not seen for some time. Albeit it was -5, not a deterrent to Edna & I we are snow warriors. Again it was very quiet and still in the early morning. Winter is the best time for truly hearing Nature. The stillness is broken by drips, a shrill call of a Blue Jay, the crack of a branch or the crunch of snow underfoot. Even after a sunny day there is still a lot of snow on the tress and branches. It is just so breathtaking. Truly Mother Natures Magic at her best.
