A little Appalachian glow
The storm Sunday and yesterday got rid of the snow that had blanketed the forest. Now, the mountain looks like late November again. I quickly checked the long-range forecast to see when snow might return—perhaps this weekend, but I’m not going to hold my breath.
This morning a rabbit hopped in front of Dog and me, the first I’ve seen in a while. Likely the open ground makes foraging easier for it. I know my chickens like it. Snow is not really their forte. The Canada geese are also back on the pond, as the rain opened a corner in the ice so they can swim around again.
My second photo today is how Appalachian glow looks from the inside. The trees overhead just lit up during sunrise this morning.
