March Snow

Winter reminds me of a handsome narcissist, a guy with a beguiling smile and a stone-cold heart. 
He knows what scares you, and he loves every minute of it. If my Mimi were here, she'd break off a switch and whip that man proper.







The snow keeps falling. Bandy filled the bird feeder, but the poor little robin won't budge from her perch.
"When all aloud the wind doth blow . . . 
And birds sit brooding in the snow."
--William Shakespeare, Love's Labour's Lost V, ii

 Snow on the broken urn.


"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead."
--James Joyce, from The Dead in Dubliners

"It snowed and snowed, the whole world over,
Snow swept the world from end to end.
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned."
--Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

  3. I'm not sure who told Mother Nature she could dump all her left over snow in the Mid-South!

    1. What a trickster she is! I hope she doesn't have ice up her sleeves.

  5. This was beautiful too!

    My birds were outside trying to get through the snow to the birdseed and the ice on in the birdbath when I woke up the other day. I went out there and fixed it for them. Poor things... I know it's silly to feel bad, but I do.

    You stay warm and be careful!

    1. I feel bad, too. With wildly fluctuating temps, the poor birds need all the help we can give them. You be careful, too--ice is tricksy!

  6. It seems as though winter's grip is still firm yet. Up here in the Great Lakes region we've had plenty of it! It's pretty at your home. We'll know when it's spring up here when the Robin's arrive!

    1. I checked on Miss Robin at noon, and she'd flown away. Maybe she's headed to your house. ;-)

  7. That snow guy certainly deserves a punch in the stomach! Your snow is lovely though. We don't live too far from the Mohawk River and it is frozen solid! One day we'll thaw out!
    Be a sweetie,Shelia ;)

  8. I see what hit us during the night traveled on up the interstate in your direction. Ole Man Winter needs to go away.
    Hope you are doing much better from your fall, and you will be staying off the ice this time - Right?!? :)

  10. I imagine more that your Mimi would take a switch to old man winter this year if they had a chance. I would not be a happy camper if I had to contend with the snow. My husband remarked last night that even the first snow fall doesn't seem pretty to him anymore. Hope you're doing better after your fall ML and aren't out in this.
