My parlor palm is fruiting for the first time. Supposedly I could plant the fruits and have many palms. Once again, my houseplants like the fact that all the trees have been cut down, I do not.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of lichen. Here’s a variety on a bench.

The snow and ice are melting and some ground is visible. It’s lovely outside, green things are sprouting and I made my vaccination appointments this morning.

In the early part of our long duration snow event, the flakes were visible on dark objects. I’m not sure why there are so many shards instead of flakes.

In between the rainy day and the current snowy day, some interesting patterns of ice formed from the melting of previous snow events.

We had a mild and rainy day yesterday. A preview of things to come, but now we are back to cold with more snow on its way.

When the snow was coming down in large flakes, making hats on Rose of Sharon seedpods.

Actually clumps of snow, not birds, but also the name of folks my age who flee to warmer climates in the winter. Too much snow, too much ice, too much cold. I don’t like February.

Giant snowflakes falling as my birch tree sprouts its spring catkins. Makes it look like a strange furry white creature.

A young Chinese Elm was cut down last fall. The bark slowly started to fall off revealing the work of many critters.
