You can see the flecked paint through the ice on the railing (metal pipe) of my back steps.

Bitterly cold today, but the sun was out, so I ran out for a few minutes to catch the sun on the ice covered...everything.

The can't convey the funny grunting growls of my mother's dog as she plays in with a toy in the snow.

I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.

According to the Cornell Ornithology Lab, ducks hybridize readily (and are the ancestors of most domestic breeds) so these are probably crosses with some pale colored domestic duck. They look like sepia photos of mallards!

These balustrades make for such interesting shadows. Direct sun shadows angling down, and reflected sun, from the river, angling up.

Today's pond, from almost the same spot. The water level on the river is down over 3 feet according to the marker further up the river.

We got so much rain yesterday that the ducks were swimming right up to the road at the park. The flock "in" the pond are actually about where the paved path is.
