More snow this weekend, another 6 inches. We had a bit of a mid-Winter thaw last week, and the daffodils started peeking up in anticipation of Spring. Not to be, the thermometer is going back below freezing for a few days, with a chance of more snow later in the week. Quite a contrast from early last Summer as you can see here.
Zippy doesn't seem to be too terribly troubled by the snow. He is a Turkish Van cat, descended from ancestors in the mountains of eastern Turkey. He has a thick coat and seems to finally be enjoying that he can blend into nature instead of standing out like an albino when he stalks butterflies and insects. Here he is just entering the garden next to a metal lantern we have there. He looks a little chilled here, but believe me he can plow through snow up to his belly.
Don't forget to put some food out for the full-time residents of the garden too, they need a little help for the next few weeks until the sun starts getting closer to the Northern Hemisphere again where it can actually produce some heat.
