I have been away for some time, so as soon as it was light enough this morning I was eager to go out into the garden. It has been snowing for a couple of days, but today the sky, though grey, is quite bright. The trees are covered in snow and make my world look like a winter wonderland. The first squirrel of the day was already visiting the feeding area, though he had to search in the snow for sunflower seeds as I hadn't filled the feeders yet.
Hidden by the darkness of the night the deers had been searching the garden high and low for something to eat. The snow make winter a hard season for them. They are eating the last roses which were about to bloom when the snow came, but exept fdrom that they don't seem to destroy much in the garden.
